I think I’ve talked about it multiple times, but I just love this circuit workout.

It makes time fly by and it gives me a great workout. Even when I have no desire to exercise, I get excited just thinking about this.


The whole thing takes about 45 minutes, depending on how quickly I move. It is tough, but I look at the cardio part as my recovery, spending about 30 seconds of the cardio portion ‘recovering,’ then getting intense again.

Try it – I promise you will love it!

(Or kinda hate it, but still love it.)


Staple Circuit

5 min warm up

5 mins intense cardio (I use the elliptical)

30 walking lunges

10 pull ups (I use the assisted pullup machine when needed)

75 second plank hold

20 pushups

REPEAT 5 TIMES

5 minute cool down

    I really hate “working out”, but I’m trying to get better at it. And since I trust you, maybe I’ll try it :)

    Wow, I tried this circuit today and it kicked my ass! I only made it 3x (partly b/c of time and partly b/c I don’t think I could have made it through 5x). I look forward to challenging myself to get through 5x!
    Thanks!!
