Finally a moment to say hello! This week’s been a blur. Busier than normal and running around more equals an extra tired Nat. Well, that’s my excuse. Staring at a blank white screen when you’re tired does nothing for inspiration and typing keys. The ideas are there, the fingers won’t type.
I don’t normally share my workouts here. Mainly as I’m a little reserved letting my peers know my ideas with them saying; No, no, no those 2 moves don’t go, really that and she calls herself a trainer! But you’ve gotta start somewhere! Tuesday’s workout was a fun, sweaty total body one which had me targeting legs (quads) and shoulders. After warming up it took about 20 minutes.
1 circuit x 3, 7 exercises, 10 reps or 30 seconds each set, rest inbetween set transition time. 1-2 min rest inbetween each circuit. I was pushed for time, hence rest being transition time. If you do do it or take a few moves from it, make sure you have the all clear to exercise. Must have a disclaimer! Oh and the last 2 reps of each set you should be feeling they’re harder. If not, increase the weight!
10 x medicine ball squat throws
10 x 1x plank jack to 1x push up to 1x sumo squat. It’s much like a burpee minus the jump up into the air.
10 x goblet squats
10 x TRX plank abs tucks and pikes, alternating each one. 5 each in total.
10 x TRX squat to fly
10 x dumbbell halos (5 in each direction, sealing starting direction half way)
30 seconds burpees. No push up. Last 2 of each set a tuck jump (optional. I felt like adding them. Next week, I’ll play with a full set of burpee tuck jumps!)
This was chased with chin ups, box jumps and an abs and all important booty circuit aka bridges, fit ball roll outs, tummy tucks, twisted crabs and top elbow to top knee side planks! I felt great afterwards! Some days you want a heavy lifting day, other days you just wanna jump it out. Tuesday was a mix of them both.
Unfortunately this weeks Weekly Photo Challenge will be a little late. I’m travelling and where I’m staying only my mobile’s picking up the internet quickly. My Mac’s taking it’s sweet time loading pages. Paint dries quicker. I have a lot of blog catching up to do! Though I have one question, has anyone else made coffee in a loose tea strainer ball? It surprisingly works!
Have a great May Day Weekend!
A tough workout Natalie, don’t know if I have what it takes to do one of your workouts. Much admiration and respect! 🙂
Awe, thank you! If I’m honest this one wasn’t too tough. Maybe the burpee tuck jumps as it was my first time trying them out. As you can see I don’t do machines! I much prefer to move. Hope your running’s doing great!
Sounds like a serious circuit. I enjoyed reading about your workout. The TRX planks…..so hard!
TRX planks. A killer but fun. I find anything that challenges and is ‘enjoyable’ (I don’t lift heavy as in powerlifing. I don’t enjoy it!) pushes boundaries! This circuit was a fun one. Most of mine are like this. I like to play!
