Tough Upper Body Circuit Workout

Here’s another great circuit workout. It was particularly tough on the arms and the core. Good luck.

As with all the circuits… do the exercises for 1 min and do the circuit three times with minimal rest between exercises and between circuits.

1. Lat pull ups (you can either use a TRX style apparatus with grips or just use a bar a couple feet above the ground with your feet out in front of you)

2. Box jumps

3. Incline pushups (with feet up on something sturdy about 1 ft high)

4. Walking lunges holding weights overhead

5. High plank with opposite arm and leg balance (from a high push up position raise your right hand out in front of you and your left leg up, switch sides)

6. Sit ups with a medicine ball (we do them with 12 lbs, bring the ball completely over your head to the ground when you go down)

7. Single leg wall sits (holding a weight shoulder height in front of you… try 10 lbs for starters)

8. Mountain climbers
