New Circuit Workout

Hello everyone! I hope you’re enjoying your Saturday so far :D.

Last night my friends and I went downtown to a bar and grille called Tia’s. It was so much fun! The bar is right on the water and it was a beautiful night with perfect weather! And we had a designated driver, so no money was spent taking a cab home…SWEET!!

Today is going to be spent doing some lovely textbook reading (please note: I’m being sarcastic…that’s not fun). But, before I start succumbing to my school work, I wanted to share with you the awesome circuit workout that I did this morning!

Circuit Workout 3

This workout took about 45 minutes to complete.

Circuit #1

  • Medicine Ball Push-Ups (6 reps each side)


  • Assisted Pull-ups (12 reps)
  • Rear lunges (15 reps each leg)

Circuit #2

  • Chest press on stability ball (15 reps)
  • One-arm reverse fly with cable (10 reps each side)


  • Single-leg hamstring curls on stability ball (12 reps each side)

Circuit #3

  • Alternating bicep curls (12 reps each side)
  • Upright rows (10 reps)
  • Leg press (15 reps)
  • Tricep extensions (15 reps)

Circuit #4

  • V-ups (20 reps)
  • Dumbbell side bends (15 reps each side)
  • Bicycle crunches (40 reps)
  • Bird-dog planks (8 reps each side)


I repeated each circuit 3 times, waiting 30 seconds between sets!

Hope you all have a great day :).


What are you up to this weekend?

How often do you do different strength training exercises?

  3. Sounds like an awesome Friday night 😀 I’ve never been to a waterfront bar, but it sounds beautiful. My weekend, unfortunately, won’t be all that exciting… a lot of packing… which I guess is -kind of- exciting since it means I’ll be moving soon 😀 And I need to work on switching up my strength routine a bit more. I’ve been doing the same old, same old, and I’m getting bored so I’ll probably give yours a try. Thanks girl 😀
