This week’s workout is a total body circuit from FitFabCities.coms. This is the first of the Bikini Boot Camp workouts that I took too the gym with me. All of these moves can certainly be done at home, but sometimes it’s nice to switch it up and have heavier weights available for an added challenge. If you don’t have access to a resistance band or dumbbells, see my modifications for some of the moves below.
I really liked this circuit because it’s a true total body circuit, in that it targets all of the major muscle groups and alternates back and forth between upper and lower body training. Honestly, I thought this was going to be a lot easier than it turned out to be! I wasn’t expecting to break a sweat, but I took very minimal amounts of rest and let me tell you, my heart rate was pretty elevated the entire time. Also, this is an awesome workout for your butt! I know this not only because of all of the lunges and squats, but because while the rest of my muscles are pretty OK, my glutes are totally sore! I was able to complete 3 rounds of the circuit in about 30 minutes. For the best results, repeat the circuit at least 2 times!
This is a quick breakdown of all of the moves in the circuit. Watch the video for a demonstration of each move:
