Stuck in a hotel gym or just don’t want to use a lot of equipment at your own gym. This is a great circuit for you!
WORK IT WEDNESDAY WILL FEATURE A NEW WORKOUT FOR YOU EVERY WEEK, ESPECIALLY BENEFICIAL FOR OUR DANCERS!
When travelling or in apartment gyms, we typically only see dumbbells and stability balls. Well this is plenty for a good workout. We like circuits to keep the pace up since likely don’t have time to spend hours in the gym. We performed these back to back with as little rest as possible for 4 sets. We did higher reps due to lower weights, such as 10-20 per each exercise.
- Rear Foot Elevated Split Squats (RFESS): Elevate one leg on a bench & make sure step out far enough so not uncomfortable. Want to keep front foot flat. Don’t arch back or let front leg internally rotate. Complete all on one side, then complete other.
- Stability Ball Rollout: Featured previously, this exercise is crazy tough on the core & if haven’t done many planks can help shoulder stability also. Don’t lose focus on your core with a tight abdominal brace more important the how far you reach out.
- Bridge Alternating Press: This help build full body stiffness, while emphasis on glutes and chest. Maintain a good bridge, raise both weights, then lower one at a time. The alternating increases time in exercises for slightly more cardio effect, as well as increases difficulty on each arm, thus allowing lighter weight to be used, such as in a hotel gym.
