Wellness Wednesday: Rock Your Bod Circuit Workout (Body Sculpt Series)

This fun and easy to follow circuit workout will rock your body in only 30 minutes! You only need dumbbells for this amazing full body workout.

Oh hi there! How’s your week been so far? Lately I’ve been traveling quite frequently so keeping the days straight is difficult, if not impossible. This past week I was in Arizona, spending time with Tony while he’s in Spring Training for baseball. We had a completely wonderful time checking out restaurants, climbing Camelback mountain and going on lots of walks.

I LOVE being able to stay active while away from home, how about you?

Usually I’m a huge group fitness and yoga junkie, therefore I often feel motivated to work out if classes aren’t available to me. However, after being inspired by my recent trip to Princess Cruises and the Body Sculpt classes I attended, I took the initiative to workout on my own by doing exercises inspired by the classes and also, running nearly every day. It made me feel a little bit better about indulging at a few restaurants (truffle fries, froyo, and oh my goodness ALL THE WINE!).

This workout is an exact replica of what Lee from Fit Foodie Finds and I did on the ship. As I mentioned in last week’s workout, we wanted to inspire and encourage you to workout whenever, wherever!

These exercises are meant to push you, but you can take them at your own pace and take rests if needed.

I usually do these workouts with 30 seconds of rest between each and then also go for a 3 mile walk sometime during the day. This set is a great overall body workout; you’ll get your heart pumping and rock your bod at the same time! Enjoy.

Do each exercise 16 times with no breaks in between. Once the circuit is complete, rest for 30 seconds and then move into the next round (14, 12, 10, 8, 6).

Clean + Press*: Begin with feet hip-width distance apart, holding a dumbbell in your right hand. Lower down into a squat keeping your chest lifted. Tap the dumbbell on the ground. Then stand back up bringing your arm into goal post position and perform a one arm shoulder press. Repeat. *Do this exercise 16 times on the right side then 16 times on the left (or whatever round you are on!)

Mountain Climbers: Begin in a plank position with your shoulders stacked over your wrist, feet hip-width distance apart, and spine in one long line. Then, pull your right knee into your chest and then your left. The faster you go, the harder it will be!

Alternating 1-Arm Row + Push-Up*: With a dumbbell in your right hand, begin in a plank position with your shoulders stacked over your wrist, feet hip-width distance apart, and spine in one long line. Then, lower down into a push-up, leading with your chest and keeping your neck long. Press back up into plank and perform a one arm row with your right arm and then open into a side plank. Repeat. *Do half on the right side and half on the left. For example, if it’s round 16, perform 8 on the left side and 8 on the right side.

Static Squat: Begin with feet hip-width distance apart, holding a dumbbell. Keeping your chest lifted and shoulders back, lower down into a squat. Extend your arms out in front of you and hold for 16 seconds (or whatever round you are on), keeping the dumbbell at shoulder height.
