The perfect circuit

I was looking at my Fitness magazine, dated May 2008.  I came across “The Perfect Circuit”  Here’s the routine:

What you’ll need:  a pair of 5-8 lb dumbbells.

  • 24 alternating lunges with bicep curls, holding dumbbells in each hand
  • 20 Plie squats, feet turned out to the sides, knees behind toes, holding a dumbbell in each hand.  as you squart, raise arms straight out in front of chest.  Lower arms as you lift back up.
  • Two 45 second plank holds, hands below shoulders, abs engaged, back straight; lift one leg each time.
  • 20 alternating reverse lunges, holding a dumbbel in each hand.  As you lunge back life arms straight out to sides at shoulder height, palms down.  Lower arms as you stand up.
  • 20 squats, holding a dumbbell in each hand.  As you squat, press dumbbells straight overhead, palms facing foreard.  Lower arms as you lift back up.
  • 1 to 3 minutes of cardio (such as jogging in place, jumping jacks or jumping rope.

Rest for 1 minute, then do another set, switching up the order of the exercises.

I’ve paperclipped several other pages and I’ll share them with you here too.
