Time for another workout! This is a circuit I did with a personal training client a few weeks ago.
Do each exercise for 45-seconds working as hard as you can, followed by 15-seconds of rest. After each full circuit, rest for 1-minute. Repeat.
Remember to warm-up, cool down and stretch out! We warmed up on a cross trainer for 5-minutes first.
Full Body Circuit
- Kettlebell swings
- Russian twists with kettlebell
- Deadlift into shoulder press with a core bag
- Lunge with kettlebell pass
- Bosu over the top lateral taps
- Side plank rotation right
- Side plank rotation left
- Press up into plank
- Alternating curtsy lunges with a kettlebell
- Bicycle crunches
Here’s a key to some of the exercises you might not be familiar with.
Deadlift into shoulder press with a core bag: With legs slightly bent, and back straight, hinge over from the hips and lower the core bag to the shins or floor. Come back up to standing with a clean and press.
Kettlebell pass: Do a backward lunge and then pass the kettlebell from one hand to the other underneath the front leg.
Bosu lateral taps: Watch the video at 30-seconds in to see the fast lateral taps we did.
Side plank rotations: Get into a side plank position and place the hand of your top arm on the side of your head. Rotate your elbow towards the underside of your body and then back up to the start position.
Press up into plank: Start off lying on your stomach with your arms outstretched in front of you. Pull your arms back and squeeze your shoulder blades together, then place your hands at the side of your body next to your chest. Push your whole body up off the floor and hold in plank for a second, before lowering yourself back down and repeating.
I will be filming videos for my workouts at some point in the future – I’m just sorting out a space in which to do it!
If you have any questions or feedback, please feel free to drop me an email. I’d love to hear how you got on.
