Back to My Favorite Workout Style of them All: Circuit Training!

Free time! =)

Trying to figure out a good circuit to do today, I was flipping through some pages from a book from Ross Enamait's Infinite Intensity and picked up a great routine from his's a GPP routine that really got me to want to just flat out do a routine of his once again (I haven't formally done Ross' workouts in sometime).

Ross Enamait's Infinite Intensity...Craig Ballantyne's Turbulence Training...damn, these guys created some awesome names for themselves!! And again -- they truly, truly are effective programs I support 100%. If you haven't taken a peek at the links to the right, I strongly suggest you do!

Anyway, not much time for myself all day (3 little ones are down with the cold bug), I still managed go get a home workout in once again (with little time I had for myself) and did this inspired workout this afternoon.

The circuit below was a Ross Training approach, the heavy bag punching was something I did for extra work:

Time: 5 pm
Gymless Routine/Heavy Bag - Home Workout

5 rounds of the following circuit with 30 second rest between each circuit (tough):
Burpees x 30 seconds
Jumping Jacks x 30 seconds
Split Jumps x 30 seconds
Burpees x 30 seconds
Jumping Jacks x 30 seconds
Fast Mountain Climbers x 30 seconds

2 minute rest

Heavy Bag punching intervals 1,2,1,2 combinations for 10 sets = 1 round

4 rounds done to round off this workout.

Entire workout took under 30 minutes tops. Very fast yet very exhausting workout. Not easy. Whew.

Tough, but a nice kick in the butt. That's one reason why circuit training and high intensity interval training is the way to go in my book! Ross and Craig deliver that!

Tomorrow I end a very fun TT program. It was a helluva 28 days for me while doing it. Had a blast and expect to do an equally challenging if not more challenging TT workout next week! Pretty excited about that as well.

That's a pretty good looking circuit! I'm going to check out the Infinite Intensity website later today. Thanks for the link.
