45 minute strength circuit

This is a 45 minute strength circuit. It is groups of 3 exercises, do 1 minute of each exercise, 3 rounds, and then move to the next set of 3 exercises. Try to do each set with minimum breaks, but then if you need a minute or 2 in between the sets, then take a little breather to catch your breath. 🙂

1 minute of each, 3 rounds

1. Bicep curls – front/side

2. Plie squats with Activmotion bar on shoulders – or weights on shoulders

3. Side-to-side arm dips with weights (here is a link to show you) (and no, I didn’t choose that link b/c of the dude…;) )

1 minute of each, 3 rounds

1. Tricep dip with Activmotion bar – or a weight – or just on the floor or off of a chair or step….many options 🙂

2. Butt kicks with figure 8 band

3. Posture slide (lay flat on your front side with arms straight in front of you, and with gliders, plates, or towels, you pull your hands in towards your chest while lifting your upper body up)

1 minute of each, 3 rounds

1. Shoulder press with Activmotion bar – or weights

2. Single leg lunge with glider, towel, or plate

3. Opposite leg sliding lunges

1 minute of each, 3 rounds

1. Mountain climbers

2. Sumo squat, hands behind head, side-to-side bend with elbows touching knees

3. Chest press

1 minute of each, 3 rounds

1. Front-to-side arm raises with weights

2. Squats with weight or med ball held just under your chin

3. Plank – HOLD IT! (as long as you can 🙂 and then come back to it! on the 3rd round, I actually was FINALLY able to hold it for the full minute! Longest hold for me and when I had about 15  seconds left, my entire body was shaking!)

After I completed this 45 minute circuit, I did a 20 minute stretch workout via Gigabody.

Have a good sweat! 🙂
