Rock Your Body Workout

Happy Sunday Blogger Friends!

I’ve had a pretty uneventful weekend, which was exactly my plan.  Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy having social weekends, but also need my downtime.  I woke up on Saturday at 9:30 and went on to lay around, eat breakfast, and play on my phone for over an hour.  It was fabulous.

Another reason I love my quiet weekends is that I can get in plenty of workout time.  And that makes me oh so happy! I got in a run Saturday afternoon (about 5 miles) and went to my Bar Method class this morning.  Tonight we are going to stop being anti-social and have dinner at a friends house. Perfect end to a quiet weekend.

*****************************

I also had some extra time to think up a new circuit! I present to you the “Rock Your Body Workout.”  All you will need is a yoga mat and a set of dumbbells.  Grab a lighter set (3, 5, 8#’s) as this circuit is going to challenge your muscle endurance.

Perform each exercise in the circuits (the group of 3 exercises) for 1 minute. And Repeat each circuit  twice.

(Sorry the graphic on the first circuit is kind of hard to read, it looked great when I pulled it up on its own and now that it’s in the post it looks kind of fuzzy 😦 Boo! I’m still learning…).

*Circuit 1*

(Hold arms up close to shoulder height and rotate arms forward, as if you are riding a bike.  Repeat in the opposite direction the 2nd time through the set)

*Circuit 2*

Pick one leg to start with and perform on the opposite side the 2nd time through.

*Circuit 3*

That’s all for today!
