Cardio & Upper Body Circuit

Circuit Training Workout


I have a fun new workout for you today 🙂 it was a circuit combination of upper body and cardio. It was pretty hard to shoot outside because of so many distractions, but the fresh air is amazing.  At first I wasn’t even going to bother with editing of the video because it was so noisy outside, but then one of my readers on Facebook told me I still should edit the video cause she wanted to see the workout.  So I did, watch it at your own risk LOL!

I am going to pick back up with my split routines next week, still working on figuring out the formats, but I think I finally came to a decision of making some workouts UNCUT and some edited ( the longer routines ). Thank you to everyone who commented and helped me make that decision on my Facebook. ( add me as a friend by the way if you want to keep up with updates ).

Always make sure you do a proper warm up before beginning to exercise.

For today’s routine I was using my timer as a stopwatch, an 8 lbs medicine ball, and a balance pad ( you don’t need that, I was only using it for a little more resistance ).

The workout video and workout recap video are together ( I think I like this format better ) so just fast forward.



Workout Explanation


Set your timer as a stopwatch.  There are 8 exercises and  3 rounds total of the following routine.


  • 2way push up – 10 reps on each side
  • High Knees – 80 reps
  • Skier Push-up and 2 Kick backs – 10 reps
  • Explosive Dynamic Squat & Pulse – 15 reps
  • Push-Offs S&M – 10 reps
  • Speed Tucks – 10 reps
  • Close Grip Explosive Push Ups – 12 reps ( I was doing them off my knees, cause it’s the only way I can finish the whole 12 reps )

My time for this workout was 26 minutes and 34 seconds.
