Today we would try out my Intense Interval Circuits. 45 minutes of circuits which would hopefully leave us spent! The workout is inspired by Sean T’s Insanity workouts (with less rest and stretching… so it should do the trick!)
We warmed up with 3 sets of the following: 30 secs work, 6 secs rest.
30 seconds rest between sets. (We probably could have done without the rest inbetween sets).
- POWER SQUATS
- LOG JUMPS (HURDLES)
- BUTT KICKS
- HIGH KNEES
- MUMMY KICKS
MAIN SET – 30 secs each, 6 secs rest; 3 sets of each circuit.
30 second rest between sets.
HIT THE FLOOR
MOVING PUSH UPS
CIRCUIT 3 (equipment needed)
GYM BALL JACK KNIFE (gym ball)
DIAGONAL LIFT (dumbell 5kg)
PLANK WALK UP (mat)
PUNCH UPS (dumbells 3kg)
SECOND SET – repeated 5 times
8 HOP SQUATS
8 PUSH UPS
I think we could probably go with less rest between sets to keep our heart rates a little higher.
So I’ll set the HIIT app up as:
WARM UP: 7 x 30:6 (1 for each circuit = 3)
Add a rest set in between (24:6 x 1)
MAIN SET: 12 x 30:6 (1 for each Circuit = 3)
I think I’ll maybe think about having a good body weight circuit as a spare incase we forget the equipment again.
TRICEP V PUSH UPS
SPRINTS WITH LUNGES
We both worked hard and were sweating a lot when we’d finished. A good workout where we both collapsed on the ground in a pool of sweat at the end! Roll on Friday rest day!
