Struggling for some workout inspiration this week?
Try this little circuit which will target all your muscles and also get that heart beat racing! It should take about 20mins so great if you are short on time as well.
It’s not for the faint hearted, but I promise you will feel incredible once you are finished!
A1) Kettlebell Swings x 20
A2) Goblet Squat x15
A3) Mountain Climbers x10 each side
A4) Press Ups x 5
A5) Rower x 200m OR Stationary Bike x 800m
Repeat 6 times or as many times through as possible in 20minutes.
Click on the titles to see demonstrations of the exercises!
This movement will target muscles in your hips, bum, hamstrings, back, abs, shoulders…basically a great full body movement.
Use a weight which is testing, not too light but not too heavy so that you are compromising on form.
Keeping feet on floor about shoulder width apart and swing the bell up to about level with your shoulders.
Squeeze your bum at the top of the movement.
Make sure you are in control of the movement at all times and don’t let momentum take over.
Kettlebell Goblet Squat:
This exercise will target you legs.
Keep the kettlebell tucked into your upper chest with your elbows in.
As you sink down into a squat, keep knees tracking outwards and force weight through your heels as you come back up.
An exercise which will get your core working but also targets your shoulders.
Start in high plank position with wrists, elbows and shoulders want to be inline for stability and reduce stress on shoulder joint. Bum should be low and back flat.
Brace your core, and breathe out as you crunch each leg alternatively into your chest.
A great upper body exercise.
Start position is again a high plank, with hands slightly wider than shoulder width apart.
Brace you entire body before lowering to the floor, imagine that you are pushing the floor away from you as you come back up.
Don’t let the bum dip or raise at any point.
If you can’t do a full press up just yet, then get into a high plank before dropping onto your knees to perform the movement.
Give it a go and let me know what you think!
