Wednesday Workout: Men’s Health Inspired Circuit & Cardio Blast Workout

Good morning! Hope your Wednesday is off to a great start! I’m here to share a workout that I did at home a few weeks ago. It was a rainy Monday, which meant no running outside for me- I’m not ashamed to admit that I am a fair-weather runner 🙂 I put this workout together by combining a workout I found in RM’s Men’s Health magazine with some other exercises I wanted to do on that particular day… plus a little cardio blast… #becausecardio.

The way you complete the workout is by (after a warm up, of course) completing each exercise in the strength circuit for 60 seconds, moving from one to the next with little or no rest. For exercises where it says (30R/L), it means to perform the exercise on each side for 30 seconds. In between the strength rounds/circuits, perform the cardio blast.

 

Men's Health Inspired Workout

Easy enough, right?! Ha, in theory it’s “easy”, but in reality it will have you sweating and huffing and puffing- just what you want from a workout, right? I really enjoyed the exercises both in the circuit and in the cardio blast and never felt like “ugh… that move again?!”, which is always a plus! I think I remember being pretty sore the next day, too.

Here are links to a few moves that aren’t as common on B2B:

1 arm snatch– Neghar is showing this with a KB, but you can do it with a dumbbell
Bent Press– I LOVE this move- it is super challenging, but such a complex move that requires a lot of physical strength and effort

If you have other questions, let me know! Happy sweating 🙂

Questions for you: What’s a challenging move that you love? Favorite type of cardio blast?
