Weights + Cardio Circuit Workout

Hello my icing-lover friends! <—read the comments of that post and you’ll know why I said that 😉

What a day yesterday was….boring on the work front, but exciting at the gym: At the gym I not only hopped on a spin bike to spin my life away (remember how I was ‘scared’ of bikes because of my accident?!), I completed all the pushups during the shoulders track while teaching BodyPUMP 80, on my toes (minus 4 of ’em)!! Thats 34 pushups (well 30 because 4 were on my knees)!!! Woot.

People, lifing weights makes you stronger. Being stronger makes you fitter. Being fitter makes you sexier, happier, look better, and be more confident in all areas of your life. If you don’t learn but ONE thing from me, learn that :)

And because we all don’t have BodyPUMP or treadmills at our fingertips, here is a workout to get the heart rate UP and the muscles toned that can be done almost anywhere. What da’ya say?!

Oh, and it’s only 35 minutes long. Saaawwweeeet! (See other workouts I’ve posted)

Weights + Cardio Circuit Workout

Pin It

If you don’t have dumbbells, no problem–just grab cans of food, cartons of milk, or little children 😉 Hehe.

This is a workout that is fun, challenging, and over before you know it. Plus, it’ll make you smile, sweat, get toned, and challenge your body in a new way.

A perfect recipe is you ask me!

Thankful Thursday

  1. I am grateful for scarves. I love, love wearing them!
  2. I am thankful for cashews–they make any day better.
  3. I am super thankful for (rare) evenings when the husband and I have nothing on the schedule but chat and chill.

Have a GREAT day– I am off to dance. Boy do I love teaching Zumba…..more on that at a later date :)

What workout are YOU currently loving?? Any new ideas or moves YOU’ve fallen in love with?? Any workouts YOU want to see on here?? <—I love reader’s requests! What are YOU thankful for today??

    Crazy thing, though? My kids would probably love if that were the reality! Ha!

  2. i love the workouts you post!! keep mixin’ it up, girl!! i am currently loving my 5 o’clock plans to board a plane and go visit justin!!!!

  3. i love love love spinning..i like the classes at my gym but i might look into actually going to a seperate spin studio..could be FUN!

    I am thankful for date nights with my boyfriend…we havent gone out in a while and we are going out tonight! i agree with you though, i LOVE the nights where we have nothing on the agenda except just chilling :)

  4. as you saw from my post yesterday, i’m LOVING spin classes lately! they kick my booty and challenge me in new ways. i always love a great circuit workout, so i’m looking forward to trying this one out. 😉

    today i am thankful that it’s already almost the weekend! this week is flyin by!

  5. Great workout – thanks! I always feel strong until it’s push up time. What is the secret? I bet you are going to say practice!!
    I, too, love scarves. I came across some great videos of different ways to wear them. I’m obsessed with trying them all. Check it out here: http://www.fiterature.com/2012/01/24/fashion-fave-scart/
    I’m currently loving my “run 3 miles, then do weights in the living room while catching up on shows” workout. 30 minutes has gone by and I don’t even realize it!

    • I’ll check it out, thanks!

      The secret is yes, keep doing ’em! Do as many as you can on your toes and then go to your knees—keep good form and tighten the abs as you do them<---it makes it easier!

  6. Ahhh my gym used to have Zumba, but when it was purchased by another gym they got rid of it! So upsetting…

  7. I love weight training lately! I see such positive results so its very motivating :)
