This Morning’s Circuit Workout

The more I chat to you guys the more it seems there’s a bit of a common theme when it comes to exercise. You want to know more about the best styles for getting lean, you’d like some new ideas, and you’re sick of feeling like you don’t really know what to do in the gym. Fair enough. It might take me a while, but eventually I do get the message, and the message seems to be that even though you love the nutrition, lifestyle and motivational posts I seem to be losing you a bit on the training side of things. I have to admit I started this blog with little intent of including a lot of workout-related stuff, and the reason for that is I feel many people rely too heavily on exercise when (in my opinion) nutrition and mindset have a greater influence over your success.

But I guess there’s no reason we can’t all be happy, so maybe it’s time for a change. I trust you’ll continue to enjoy my regular posts along with the occasional addition in the form of a training program. I’m going to keep it really simple for now, very much a quick’n’ rough overview of what I consider to be a great session. For the most part I’ll just be giving you a sample from my own training. I realize that this doesn’t take into account different fitness levels, and I won’t be offering regressions or progressions, but you’ll find that my style of training is easily adapted simply by lowering or increasing weights and/or rest time.

Most of the workouts require at least basic gym equipment, but they’ll all include exercises that are easily done at home with your own body weight, some dumbells, a swissball and maybe a theraband. It’s fine to leave out one or two exercises if they sound too tricky or you just need to cut back on time. Most of these workouts require you to have basic exercise knowledge, although you will be able to learn from them along the way. I’ll start adding photos in the future, but I forgot to take them this morning. I trust my explanations will suffice in the meantime!

Today’s Workout: Full Body Circuit

Great for boosting your metabolism first thing, maintaining strength, increasing power, building aerobic and anaerobic fitness, and working up the finest damn sweat your gym has ever seen. Up to you to figure out the weights!

Part One

1. 15 x cable squat pulls – set up the cables with a rope at the bottom level, or fasten a theraband to the floor. Hold one end in each hand. Squat full depth and explode up, pulling the ends of the rope/band back at shoulder height in a row movement. Elbows should come right back. Straighten out your arms again as you begin the next rep.

2. 24 x alternate cable wood chops – Set the cables/theraband up high, still use the rope to save time. Chop from high to low, using rotation through your torso.

3. 12 x spider push-ups – Bring one knee up into your armpit as you go down. Alternate sides.

3. 20 x dumbell swing lunges – Start with straight arms, dumbell in each hand, and explosively swing the dumbells into the air as you lunge. Alternate legs, controlling the descent of the weights by bending your arms.

Repeat 3 times round, with as little rest as possible between rounds.

Part Two

1. 15 x jumping chin-ups – jump from a squat position and pull yourself up as high as you can before jumping down, landing with best knees. It’s best to go straight into the next rep, as you’ll generate power from the last.

2. 12 x swissball jacknifes – put your feet on top of the ball, hands on the floor in a push-up position. Keep your spine straight and pull the ball in toward your body by bending your knees toward your chest. Take 3 counts to bring the ball in and 3 to bring it out.

3. 12 each leg x 1-leg barbell dead lifts – Hold the bar close to your thigh as you bend forward on one leg (bend at both knee and hip). Let the other leg go up high behind you as you bend forward. Once the bar reaches knee level come back up again.

Repeat 3 times round, rest as little as possible

Part Three

1. 15 x dumbell swing squats straight into 15 x dumbell squat press – Hold the weight between both hands, and swing it up fast with straight arms (to head height) as you come out of each squat. Squat press is done holding the weight between both hands at chest height, press on the way up.

2. Two minute bridge brace – Hold yourself on feet and flat hands, keep your shoulder forward over your hands, your spine straight.

Repeat 3 times, no rest.

Total workout time should be 45 minutes – this may mean you have to leave off the last part of the workout if you need more rest. It’s best not to go past 45 minutes as you start to release cortisol, which causes a hormonal fat-storing response.

Enjoy! And don’t forget to comment on how you go 🙂

I’m creating my new course, Big $ollar Energy, for the one who always knew she is here for millions,

to make it. To impact them. To create. And to LEAD.

Big $ollar Energy

The Money & Expansion Course for the Soul-Led Wanderer Who KNOWS It’s Time to Go All in on HER,

and Let the Damn Receiving Take Care of Itself. The Way it Was Always Meant to Be.

Which means?

Identifying and releasing everything that gets to go, from the way you’re thinking you need to do shit now, to the purposeless bits of the push or biz that it just don’t need to be about, to the hidden junk in your psyche that gets to go.

>>> It’s not about the do. The push. The win. When who you are when you only go within naturally PLACES you at the top,

but of the right fucking mountain.

The one that was always YOURS.

And then you finally WENT there.

Here’s the thing, for us, about allowing an expanse of RECEIVING.

IT HAPPENS WHEN WE GO TO THE PLACE WHERE IT JUST IS.
And always was.

Class starts LIVE on Monday May 24, however early access + Big $ Energy vibes will open from Monday May 17 in our Telegram chat + join now bonuses are open already!
