Week 9 Circuit Workout – Arms, Abs, & Buns
This week I’ve got another workout you can do at home with only a resistance band (and a chair which I think you all have at home)!
Why circuit training? Particularly for fat-loss, training in a circuit manner can be helpful because it keeps you moving and your heart rate up. Circuit training is moving through a set of exercises, one exercise to the next, with no or minimal rest between exercises then taking a 1 to 2 minute rest at the end of the completed circuit. Then you repeat for a number of rounds.
This workout has some exercises that you might not have seen before so watching the video is important! Remember when using a resistance band you determine how challenging the exercise is by adjusting your feet placement in relationship to the length of the band. Make sure on the unilateral (one-sided) exercises you do the full reps on each side before moving to the next exercise. The push-ups are challenging so do as many as you can.
Week 9 Arms, Abs, & Buns Circuit Workout
10-15 reps each exercise (on each side), 3-4 rounds of the circuit
1. Modified Pistol Squat – use a chair or box or step stool or whatever you got! Do one side for reps then move to next side
2. Dolphin Push-ups
3. Reverse Chop with resistance band – do one side for reps then move to next side
4. One-Leg Elevated Hip Pulses – do one side for reps then move to next side
5. Push-up to Superman Opposite Reach – just 10-15 reps total
6. Cross Punch – do one side for reps then move to next side
