Yesterday was my first day of circuit training on my workout program. This is when I concentrate on lifting a high amount of reps with a lighter weight. This was a different style of training for me because you do 150 reps and THEN you can rest. That’s a LOT!
Here’s a look at my workout for yesterday’s Day 71 on Jamie Eason’s LiveFit program.
Complete 30 reps for every exercise back to back, without rest, for a total of 150 consecutive reps. Rest 3-to-5 minutes between each circuit and then repeat 2-to-3 more times.
Circuit: 3-4 rounds
Barbell Squat 30 reps
Leg Press 30 reps
Stiff-Legged Barbell Deadlift 30 reps
Barbell Lunge 30 reps
Calf Press On The Leg Press Machine 30 reps
Rest 3-to-5 minutes.
I actually really enjoyed this type of training. Sometimes I get bored resting between sets. This process keeps you busy (and worked!!) the whole time. I found that each circuit took me about 10 minutes to complete. I did the circuit 3 times.
It was a very fast workout compared to weeks 9 and 10 of this plan. I was used to being in the gym to 1:30 to 2 hours at a time, but I was in and out of the gym for this workout took less than 45 minutes!!!! Woohoo! I hope the rest of the plan is like that.
I ended up burning 328 calories in the 34 minutes I was working out. There was no cardio on this day because it was leg day.
The plan says to do it 3-4 times, but I only did 3 because I wanted to get home to my puppy!!!
My lil’ girl doesn’t have a name yet, hopefully we’ll pick one soon. She’s doing well, but still has a LONG way to go before she’s fully potty trained.
Let’s hope she doesn’t try to play this little move on me….
