A new total body circuit to change up your workout.

October 1st, 2012 No Comments

First of all, please excuse the full frontal naked face in this video….

Back to the purpose of this post: new exercises! Group fitness classes are great because you can learn new moves to incorporate into your own workouts.  Monique at BLAST900 tortured us with this Bosu circuit yesterday that has my glutes SORE today.  Yay!  I need all the help I can get with that flap jack :)

If you’re pressed for time, this is a great circuit to get a solid workout in about 10 minutes.  Just getting your heart rate up keeps your body and metabolism strong.

In the gym, I would combine this circuit with a back or tricep workout (click the links to see each broken down for you).  These muscles groups are tertiary in the circuit, meaning they aren’t are main or secondary target, so you should be able to hit them hard.  Here’s how I would combine the circuit and the back workout.

1.  One full circuit as you see in the video.

2.  Set of 30 assisted pull-ups (changing grips every 1o reps).

3.  One full circuit.

4.  Set of 20 rows – seated or standing with a twist.

5.  One full circuit.

6.  Set of 30 rear delt flies.

7. Lower Back Extensions
