My friend Hayley, who is a total badass vegan athlete, is going to help me out with some workout videos for my blog. Because it’s nice filming someone else rather than trying to film myself all the time, which is not as easy as you might think! I tell her what to do and film her. Then we switch and she films me doing another workout. Then I knock out two at one time! The editing alone can take over an hour from upload to publishing on YouTube so it’s nice to have the help so I can keep pumping out these workouts to you!
Today’s circuit workout you’ll need one small kettlebell. You could also use a dumbbell, though it would be tricky to do the bicycles so you can do those without weight and up the reps.
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.
Please note: These workouts I’ve been posting are to help give you ideas of how to create your own circuit workouts if that’s the right training for your goals. They are not a substitute for a personalized program if you have specific goals in mind. Be sure to check out my fitness coaching if you want to work with me to meet your fitness or physique goals. If you are just wanted to get moving and stay healthy I recommend only doing full body workouts 3-4x a week with rest days in-between. The workouts I posted are not meant to be done every day or in concession.
