High Intensity Interval Circuit

by Courtney on January 16, 2013

You guys ready to get sweaty?

Well I sure hope so, because I’ve got a pretty killer circuit workout for you all today!

high intensity interval circuit1

This particular workout is very similar to one that I enjoyed giving to a few of my training clients. It combines a whole mix of stuff, including plenty of core stability exercises, which are some of the most important of all.

The only equipment you’ll need is a set of dumbbells, which will only be used for the first exercise; other than that, you’re just using your bodyweight. I hope you guys have fun with this one!

Oh, and always, here’s some photos to demonstrate each of the exercises. Winking smile

      Squat w/ Dumbbell Press                                Elbow Plank

     

                     Wall Sit                               Side Plank with Leg Raise

    

        Alternating Lunges                                        Swimmers

        Squat with Front Kick                              Flutter Kicks

    

               Squat Thrusts                                       Lateral Hops

This looks like a good one! I love any type of workouts I can easily do at home, since that’s where most of my workouts occur!

I love that it incorporates a lot of full-body movements, some plyo, some strength… sounds like a perfect workout to do at home!

I like the challege in this, but also how quick it seems! (yay, Tabata-style!) I am curious to how this affects your pregnancy, especially the Squat Thrusts. Are some exercises more difficult than others?

Good one! Squat Thrusts (or even Burpees) make everything better….or worse. Depends on how you look at it! haha

Your Swimmers excercise image did not display. Can I assume that another name for that excercise is Superman? Thanks!

24 Courtney January 17, 2013 at 11:11 am

Yes, pretty much! Same position, just doing the motion that you’re swimming by kicking legs and arms overhead

25 Jamie January 17, 2013 at 12:22 pm

Thanks for the clarification, greatly appreciate it. Can’t wait to try this circuit this weekend!!

Great workouts … but you can’t fool me … those squat thrusts are burpees in disguise … my nemesis in exercise workouts :) Thanks for sharing this and I can’t wait to give it a try after work today!!

Circuit training is the best way to go especially if you have a personal trainer or friend to push you.
