Warm Up (3 rounds)
Circuit (3 rounds)
10-lb dumbbells: 1 for the Getup Plank / 2 for the Deadlifts
15-lb dumbbell: Row and Twist
12-lb dumbbells: Pullovers
My quads are still on fire from the last workout, so I tried to stay away from moves that targeted the quads too much. This routine was a little bit less intense than usual, but still challenging. The goal was to keep the workout momentum going.
Circuit: The circuit itself target core (obliques, for the most part), arms and shoulders. I could have gone heavier on the Deadlifts, if it wasn’t for the “goalpost” twist on the variation I did. I’ll make a point to do standard Deadlifts this upcoming week. This was my first time trying to do the Turkish Getup Plank. It was…interesting. I tried to go for the 15-lb dumbbell on that one. I did like a couple of wobbly reps before I went for the 10s. I was THAT wobbly. [Better safe than a dumbbell on your head.] There’s no way I could have completed 3 rounds of 10 reps with the 15s. Even with the 10s, at some point I had to split the reps on the Getup Plank into two sets of 5 each ‘cause ddumbbell up. Worked the booty and hamstrings with some Blogilates and then finished with 3 sets of Pullovers (favorites!), 8 reps per set, ‘cause I’m still building up and I’m still feeling my biceps from Thursday. So, you knows, those 8 reps sets are getting the work done.
