Fitness Fridays

I have decided to relate my posts on Fridays about fitness. I know it's not Friday yet, but I will be at the beach tomorrow beginning a few days of vacation and will probably not be blogging much. I thought I'd start Fitness Friday a day early!

This morning I created a new circuit. Obviously there are a MILLION ways that you can do circuits, but that's the fun part about them----they can always be different. Below is the one I did this morning. I hope you try it out...just don't curse my name while doing it... ;)

*10 minute warm-up*
15 bicep curls
15 hammer curls
15 tricep extensions
15 tricep dips on bench
15 jumping jack squats
15 over head press
60 sec. plank (ouch)
20 pushups
15 jumping jack squats
15 dead lifts with barbell
15 barbell wide rows
3-5 minute intense bike (or other cardio like elliptical or treadmill)
30 crunches
15 front raises
15 side raises
15 burpees (I can't do these yet b/c of my leg issue, so I did jumping jacks instead)
2 sets of 15 reps, chest press
15 lunges PER leg (total 30)
15 dumbbell back flys
15 jumping jack squats
15 kneeling one arm row PER arm (total 30)
30 crunches (owwww)


*One circuit takes about 20 minutes. If you can do two or three of these you are doing GREAT! I did three of these this morning and man was I sweating. It's great ab work, too! Good luck!
