Wednesday Workout: 3 Exercise Circuits

Hi guys! How’s it going? Happy Wednesday 🙂 Between work and my own workout and teaching, Wednesdays are long days, so I’m always happy when I’m leading the cool down in my class because it means it’s all downhill and easy after that!

Before we get into the workout, I have a few wedding-related questions for you:

  1. Do you know of any photographers that you think I should look into? There are so many out there that are fantastic, but also super expensive. While we want good pictures, we are trying to be smart with our planning and vendor search so we are open to newer photographers who are looking to get more exposure. Any suggestions (new or seasoned photographers) are greatly appreciated!
  2. Band or DJ? I know bands are more expensive but I LOVE to dance and want people dancing all night and I feel like bands tend to get a better dance crowd going. Thoughts? Know of any good bands or DJ’s that are worth looking into?

thanks in advance!!

And now for the workout…. My schedule is finally allowing me to get back into more consistent training. Yesterday I even went into the scary part of the gym: the heavy weight lifting area with squat racks and benches and all of that stuff. Even though I know what I’m doing (for the most part), it’s still a bit intimidating to navigate my way around that area of the gym because it’s not a place I venture into very often. Once I figured out where everything was, I loved it- well, besides the nasty guys who think it’s OK to stare and check me out- what the heck is that all about?! It’s so disturbing and as much as I try to ignore it and avoid eye contact at all cost, part of me wants to say something.

Anywayyyyy. This workout was done in the area of the gym I AM super comfortable with: the UXF Zone area with the turf, battle ropes, KB’s, TRX, etc. I threw in some combo moves, singular moves and a little cardio. The battle rope/KB/weighted sit-up finisher was killer!

Here’s a video demo of the first set: https://instagram.com/p/9wJSXJvWyB/?taken-by=burpeestobubbly

The next set goes like this: grab a set of weights and keep them by your side as your lower into a deep squat. As you rise, do a bicep curl and then press the weights up to an overhead press.

If you have other questions, please don’t hesitate to ask me or do a quick search on YouTube 🙂

Questions for you: What part of the gym intimidates you? How do you push through that feeling? Do you notice that guys are disgusting in the gym by the way they think it’s totally appropriate for them to check women out?
