“Re-Visiting the Summer Bikini Circuit”

She Rocks Fitness is BACK and apologizes for the lack of posts! Hello December 1st! Seriously, where has time gone? The fact that Christmas is only 24 days away is kind of “redunkulous”! Thanksgiving came and went in the blink of an eye and now it is time to get in the holiday spirit without gaining all the LBS! It’s possible to do this, as long as you continue exercising, eat in moderation, and don’t go overboard on alcohol and sweets. That is a deadly combination and you don’t want to throw all your hard work straight out the window. Stay focused, try new classes at the gym, so you don’t bored, try new routines, and give yourself a cheat day here and there, but obviously not ALL the time!

Onto my Tuesday morning workout… It’s obviously not bikini season right now, but She Rocks Fitness decided it was time to re-visit this circuit yesterday at the gym, with a couple of changes, and heavier weights, it was a success! I did this workout in 30 minutes, plus a 30 minute treadmill workout. I was sweating like crazy and my muscles feel a little sore today, but in a great way. I’ll definitely be using this again. So, here is the treadmill workout and Bikini Circuit:

Treadmill Workout: 30 Minutes

  • 2 minutes: 3.8 mph at a 8 incline
  • 2 minute: 3.8 mph at a 9 incline
  • 2 minutes: 3.8 mph at a 10 incline
  • 2 minutes: 3.8 mph at a 11 incline
  • 2 minutes: 3.8 mph at a 12 incline
  • 2 minutes: 6.0 mph at a 3 incline
  • 2 minutes: 6.5 mph at a 3 incline
  • 2 minutes: 7.0 mph at a a 3 incline
  • 2 minutes: 7.5 mph at a 3 incline
  • Repeat steps 1 through 5
  • Cool Down: 2 minutes at 3.8 mph at a 0 incline

Winter Bikini Circuit: Perform 3x 15 Reps with a 2-Minute Rest between each Circuit

  • Squat with Stability Ball Overhead
  • Plies Squat with DB’s resting on hips
  • Standing DB Row
  • Alternating Biceps Curl
  • Squat with DB’s
  • Stability Ball Chest Press
  • Stability Ball Shoulder Press
  • Triceps Dip on Bench
  • Step-Ups with DB’s
  • Standing DB’s Cross-Chest Curl
  • Lunges with DB’s

What are your goals for staying in shape this holiday season? What is your favorite “cheat meal” during the holiday season?

Please feel free to contact me with any questions that you may have. I love hearing from you. If you are on the east coast, try to stay dry today and Happy Hump Day!
