Monday Full Body Circuit

Wow! It’s amazing how quickly the mornings can go by…It’s almost noon, but I can at least say that I’ve gotten a ton of work done, while loading up on 2 cups of coffee and my ABSOLUTE favorite “Overnight Oats in a Jar”! I admit it, I’m a total nerd and look forward to getting to the end of my almond butter and peanut butter jars, just to have this delicious breakfast. 😉 Tuesdays breakfast treat included:

  • 1/2 c Quaker Oats
  • 1/4 c Fage 0% Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 c Unsweetened Almond Milk
  • Handful of raspberries and blueberries
  • MaraNatha Almond Butter

Let oats, AM, and yogurt sit overnight in the jar and use whatever toppings your heart desires. Blueberries are so so so good right now! 

The real purpose of this post is to share with you a calorie blasting, muscle toning, and extremely sweaty full body circuit that I put together yesterday afternoon at the gym. I was slightly aggressive, but felt great and can totally feel it today. The circuit took 1 hour and 20 minutes! If you don’t have time to do this entire workout, cut back on the cardio, not the circuit. Good luck and let me know how it goes!

Full-Body Circuit: Perform 3 sets; 15 repetitions; 1 Min rest between circuits)

  • 35 Minutes interval training on the Stair Master (Step rate 85-105 & no hands)
  • 15 Squat with 35 lbs Plate
  • 30 1-Leg Deadlift with 25lbs Kettlebell (15 on each leg)
  • 1-minute Plank with Feet on Bench
  • 15 Chest Press with DB’s on Stability Ball
  • 1-Minute Side Plank on each side
  • 15 Standing Lat Pull-Down
  • 15 Shoulder Press with DB’s
  • 60 Mountain Climbers
  • 15 Biceps Curl with Bar
  • 30 Reverse Lunge with DB’s (15 each leg)
  • 20 Triceps Dip using Bench

Whew! This was pretty exhausting and I am feeling sore. Light workout is in store for today and I’m 100% excited about that. Oh and much needed stretching as well! 😉 Have a wonderful day and if you haven’t voted for me for Women’s Health “Fittest Friends”, please click on this link and enter your vote! Thanks!
