Strength Training Circuit Workout
Today I decided to do a strength training circuit workout. The reason I chose to do with strength training circuit is to minimize the time in the gym. Today's workout took a total of 30 minutes.
Do this strength training circuit workout in a squat rack so you can incorporate squats.
1. Start off with overhead press of just 45 pounds for 10 repetition.
2. Do 5 reps of squats with the same bar.
3. Then 10 curls with the same 45 pound bar.
4. Deadlift With 135 pounds for 5 reps
5. and then 15 push ups.
6. 5 upright rows with the bar
7. And then 10 repetitions of kettlebell squats using a kettlebell of 30 pounds
8. And then 5 pullups with or without machine assistance.
9. Then 10 kettlebell swings using a kettlebell of 40 pounds.
10. Last for this strength training circuit run in place in a pushup position, 10 repetitions.
Repeat this 10 step strength training circuit one more time adding weight where you feel that you can , 10 pounds to the barbell exercises and 20 pounds for the deadlifts as an exaple.
You will be finished by the end of a half hour.
Then go home and have a good snack or meal. You can even have a peanut butter sandwich with strawberries in the middle on whole grain rye bread if bread does not cause you too many negative reactions.
Losing weight should not be rocket science but it sure seems like it is, and if there's anyone else out there who can relate with the struggle to lose weight, then you can appreciate it.
I believe that the truth is that we need more than just deadlifts, especially when we are over 50 and a good strength training circuit will only help to keep you toned.
It is difficult to look bad when you are in your twenties or thirties, but when you get into your forties and fifties, it is pretty easy.
Food is actually the foundation upon which to build the most effective strength training workout.
A great strength training circuit will not trump a diet of twinkies. The Hashi Mashi Diet is the way to go if you want to transform your body beyond your wildest dreams.
Please comment if you have a strength training circuit that you like or that you think is going to work better.
