Quick & Killer Bodyweight Circuit

I’ve got a super fun bodyweight circuit workout to share with you guys today! But first…

You guys may remember that I’m partnering up with GNC for their fall/winter campaign.

GNC Live Well

This month (just as I did last month), I wanted to give you guys a couple quick updates on what I’m taking these days, how things are going with the things I was already taking, and then finish up with a killer workout. How’s that sound, cool? Cool. Winking smile

So last month, I told you all how I finally discovered a way to drink apple cider vinegar. I’ve had many of you asking how things are going and if I’ve noticed any differences since I began taking it. Well, I’d probably be able to give you a better answer…if I could get myself to remember to take it!

I think yesterday was the first time I’ve remembered to take it in a couple of weeks. Sometimes I’ll remember it and tell myself to make a drink once I finish X, Y, or Z, and then I never get around to it. So as far as if I’ve noticed any differences? That’s a nada…but that’s also my own fault too. Maybe I should try taking it first thing in the morning, like right before I brush my teeth or something??

One thing I have been sticking to taking though? My vitamins.

I’m still taking the Women’s Prenatal Program, and just stocked up another package. I still take the prenatals + the DHA at night, but I’ll usually just nix the calcium. I tend to get enough of it through foods, beverages, and my other vitamin, so I don’t feel the need to take it in excess.

I honestly really do love the GNC Vitapaks, not only for the convenience factor, but because they’re just so darn versatile. They seriously have something for everyone, so even if prenatals aren’t your thing, feel free to check out the site and see what might work best for you!

One last item I’ve been enjoying is the GNC 100% Egg Protein in Vanilla Ice Cream.

I also have that Pumpkin Spice Lean Shake to test out, but I haven’t had a chance to try that one quite yet. Soon, my friends. Verrrrrry soon.

But the egg protein? It’s been great; I used it the other day in the apple chunk protein muffins I made, which worked great. If vanilla is your thing, then I’d definitely recommend giving it a shot. Jay’s tried it a couple of times and he really enjoyed it, and I, for the most part, tend to use it as a protein shake after a workout if it’s totally in between meals.

Sooooo, speaking of workouts. I’ve made you wait long enough. Winking smile

Remember that workout I said I did on Sunday that left my legs sore for days? Well, that would be thanks to a portion of this little bodyweight circuit.

Yes, I succumbed to the fun, festive PicMonkey illustrations. I couldn’t help myself.

I decided to add in a few upper body/core moves to make it more of a full body workout to share with all of you. The great thing is that it only requires two things: some sort of stopwatch and YOU! So go ahead and get workin’!

As always, some demonstrations to show you…

Plié Squat

Crossover Lunge

Plank to Pushup                                                       Tricep Dips

Squat with Front Kick                                                               Burpees

    Why are you taking ACV? I recently heard of some of its health benefits, which is why I’m curious to hear your take! :) I heard it’s good for acne, so I immediately bought a bottle. I put about 1 TBS in a glass of water, lemon juice and chug it first thing in the morning (if that doesn’t wake you up, I don’t know what will! 😉 ) It takes some getting used to, but I’ll do anything if it’ll help clear up my skin! 😀

    Tried this circuit this morning and loved that it really was quick!! Not TOO tough (although tougher than I thought it would be!), but definitely got my heart rate up and felt like a great total body workout. :) Thanks for sharing!!

    I started drinking the ACV drink after you posted about it, and it has been my LIFESAVER. I tend to get bloated and gassy super easily….but when I drink this….NOTHING. It seriously has saved me from soooo many stomach problems!!!!

    Just did this circuit workout in my parent’s backyard. I am away from home for work and needed something quick and difficult. This was a great workout! The burpees killed me at the end. I added in some star jumps in the beginning to make it even sweatier! Anyways thanks again for the great workout, I found it on google images. I will be bookmarking this one for sure!

  1. […] On to the good stuff!  The past couple of weeks I have been really working hard at my running intervals on the treadmill.  I have been steadily increasing the length of my interval times as well as the entire running time.  Either the treadmill is lying or I am getting better!!  At the end of each treadmill sprint workout with one of these body weight exercises (in some cases I’d add weights, like with lunges or squats).  It rocked!!  This one is from Sweet Tooth Sweet Life.
