WOW # 4

Workout of the week # 4
Pinned Image

It's that time of week again. It's time for the workout of the week. Yep, it's another circuit workout! I have some responses to past workouts that many ladies feel these workouts just seem too intense. I once said that too, and had no desire to do these workouts. Here is why I do circuit training:

I used to be the girl that went to the gym, jumped on the treadmill, ran a few miles, went to the weight room and walked around, (having no idea what to do) did a few crunches, and left the gym. I never saw any results. I finally started seeing some results when I started lifting weighs. I instantly started to slim down and burn more fat when I began weight lifting. I was soon introduced to cross-fit and circuit workouts. But I refused to do cross-fit because it seemed "too intense" and the females I saw doing cross-fit had way more muscle then I ever wanted to have.

It took me six months to give in and try cross-fit. I saw results when I started lifting weights but I saw major result when I started practicing cross-fit. I was finally toned. And no, I did not suddenly become super muscular. The hormone balance of a female body is not naturally meant to be muscular like a male. Your specific genetics play a role in how muscular you will become, but unless you are super supplementing with protein and creatine powders you will not bulk up. Here is a great article that explains all this, in more detail.

Here is our circuit for the WOW:

Run 1 mile to warm up
Complete the following circuit 5 times:
  • 22 kettle ball swings
  • 22 box jumps (20 inch box)
  • 22 burpees
  • 22 wall balls
Cool down by walking a half mile and stretching.

Every body is different. This is the type of workout I have found works for my body to achieve the results I want to see. You may need to do something different for your body and what you want to achieve. Leave me comments, what have you found works for you? Or is there a type of workout you would like see in the next WOW?
