Sweat Sesh: Fun Full-Body Circuit

Happy Tuesday! How’s your week going so far?

Hopefully, you’re more on top of it than me. I really like to post workouts on Mondays but I got a little behind this weekend. My husband, Tyson and I took a little day trip to Cedar Key on Sunday. It’s an eclectic little island about an hour away from Gainesville. It’s a great spot to be by the water, listen to live music, eat some oysters and have a beer.

Start with Group A. Complete each exercise with minimal rest between exercises. Once you have completed all exercises in the group (1 round) rest 1-2 minutes. Complete 3 rounds of Group A before moving on to Group B.

DB = dumbbell

Exercise Reps

* The video is of a regular sumo squat. To do a 1 1/2 sumo squat start in the same position as a regular sumo squat – feet wider than hip width, toes pointed slightly out. Lower into a squat getting DB as close to the floor as possible, raise 1/2 way up, lower back down to the bottom of the squat, rise all the way up to standing. This is one rep.
