I am trying to get better about sharing my workout routines with you all. On Monday, I went back to the gym after slacking for a week. Well it wasn’t exactly slacking… I worked on my garden throughout the week and kind of considered that my exercise. I’ll have to share some photos of that with you soon, too!
It was also midterm week and I had a few papers to write for school. Gardening can get very sweaty, but it’s one of my favorite forms of exercise because it’s therapeutic and pays you back.
It’s officially Spring Break week and I am glad I started by getting back in the gym. It was also nice to have less people in there since a lot of people have gone to the beach or out of state for the week. Using my new Erin Condren Life Planner, I planned out my workout plan for the week:
Mon, Wed, and Fri – Circuit training workouts
Tues, Thu – 100 and 200 crunches respectively, along with taking a 20 minute walk
Here’s the circuit I ran on Monday; I also did 10 minutes on the arc trainer machine before and after the circuits (so a total of 20 minutes of that)
Circuit Training Workout
I did this circuit 5 times in about 20 minutes (bringing my total time at the gym to 40 minutes)
- 10 pushups
- 10 kettle ball squats
- 20 mountain climbers
- 12 lunges
- 30 second plank
- 1 minute rest
I made a chart of this circuit for you guys based on level of fitness, so feel free to pin this for later use!
This circuit training workout is awesome because it gets your heart working and you can workout different parts of your body with one set of exercises. I like to change up the exercises week to week as well as making it more challenging throughout the week so my muscles are always working.
Oh, I’ll also be posting the music playlist I used to go along with this workout, so check back for that 🙂
Have you tried circuit training workouts?
