Workout Wednesday #2

For this week’s featured workout, you’ll need access to a treadmill, stair climber, free weights, and cable machine. This workout uses variety to keep your heart rate elevated and targets your legs, glutes and abs!

Leg Circuit:

warm up:

  • 0.5 mile warmup on treadmill (Challenge: Do it in 5 minutes or less)
  • 5 minutes on stair climber

Deadlifts and Cables:

  • 4 sets of 10 reps of 1 leg deadlifts with dumbbell
  • 4 sets of 10 reps of straight leg deadlifts with 2 dumbbells with 25 jumping jacks between each set as your “rest”
  • 3 sets of 12 weighted standing kickbacks with ankle cuff on cable machine

Squat Circuit: (2 times through)

  • 1 minute wall sit, 30 second rest
  • 30 second wall sit, 30 second rest
  • 5 sets of 10 squats, 10 second rest

Abs Circuit:

  • 25 Russian twists
  • 12 weighted toe taps
  • 15 Russian twists
  • 12 weighted toe taps
  • 10 Russian twists
  • 12 weighted toe taps

The weights you choose should be based on your strength. If you are unsure, always start lighter and then build up from there in order to avoid injury. Proper form is the most important element to lifting, and I recommend learning the fundamentals of lifting from a personal trainer or fitness instructor before doing new exercises on your own.
