Circuit Sunday 2.0

Hey Peeps!  I’m really digging circuits lately, can you tell?  They seem to go by so much faster than just plugging away at the treadmill.  Today I did this one (pulled off Pinterest and modified to make it a smidge harder):

30 Jumping Jacks

5 Push-ups

25 High Knees

10 Burpees

10 Crunches

10 Squats

5 Push-ups

10 Crunches

5 Push-ups

10 Squats

30 Jumping Jacks

60 Second Wall Squat

5 Push-ups

25 High Knees

Do this 5 times around (no breaks!) with a 30 second breather between sets.  The toughest part is probably the burpees.  I may actually modify it again and do jump squats instead of regular squats and walking push ups.  All in all, you should be done with this in under 30 minutes.

Back to the treadmill.

BFF and I hit up the gym at the Y on Wednesday for the first time since probably the first week in January.  We’ve been going to kickboxing instead on Wednesdays, waiting out the New Year’s Resolutioners.  So we get there and the place is crawling with high school kids.  Normally I don’t care, but these boys were hogging all the free weights from 20-40lbs.  The policy is (supposedly) kids ages 13-17 must have a parent to be in the gym area.  I really don’t think they enforce this very well at all.

Enough of my rant, back to my point.  I put together a HIIT program for us to run on the treadmill just in case our beloved Summit Climbers were out of commission.  Here’s what we did:

1/4 mile @4.5

1/4 mile @6.5

1 minute @7

1 minute @6

1 minute @7.5

1 minute @6

1 minute @8

1 minute @6

1 minute @9

1 minute @6

30 seconds @10

2 minute walk @4.5

30 seconds @ 10

1 minute @6

1 minute @9

1 minute @6

1 minute @8

1 minute @6

1 minute @7.5

1 minute @6

1 minute @7

1 minute @6

3-5 minute cool down

We finished this in about 28 minutes and I’m pretty sure the whole gym was staring at us toward the end with all our huffing and grunting.  This will kick your ass.  If you try it, let me know what you think.

Peace Out!
