Total Body Toning– Full Body Circuit

 

*** WEDNESDAY WORKOUT***

For today’s workout I wanted to share a full body circuit. Some days I feel like just working my whole body instead of just certain areas. I am a big fan of circuits. Your Heart Rate (HR) is up higher for longer periods of time– its a mix of cardio and strength training– a win win for those trying to lose weight or tone up! Circuits are my favorite way to workout. If you have been to one of my classes you know

I am also throwing in tabadas, if this is a new exercise for you, you will love it! they way I do tabadas is a 30 second set. 20 seconds I am doing whatever exercise as many as I can, then I rest for the last 10 seconds of the set. For example if I was doing a squat tabada style I pump out as many squats as I can in 20 seconds and then rest for 10 seconds (or to make it a bit tougher I hold that low squat position for the resting 10 seconds.. great leg bum burner!) I usually do 8 rounds= 4 minutes..

Equipment needed:
– Mat (optional)
– Set of Dumbbells (DB)
– Timer

*Squat with side Kick- do a regular body weight squat then while you are standing up you shift your weight to one foot while you are kicking to the side with another.
