Workout Wednesday Circuit

I did this circuit with a friend the other day and I loved it, so I thought I would share! This circuit involves 4 exercises, that you will do for 16, 14, 12, 10, 8, and 6 reps. Try to get through the full circuit, and then take a minute or two for some water before beginning the next round. You will need a weight.


1) Dumbbell Squat and Press: Remember to keep good form – neutral back and neck, and sit back without letting knees fall over the toes.

2) Dumbbell Pushup: (Split your reps evenly on each arm, for instance if you are on your first round, do 8 on the right side and 8 on the left side).

3) Mountain Climbers: Be sure to keep core tight and engaged for this one.

4) Turkish Get Ups: Same as the push-ups, split your reps on each side, and return to start the same way you got up.  If a weight is too much, try doing these unloaded first.

Let me know what you think!

happy circuit training!
