I had less time than I thought at the gym yesterday when I went to complete my daily Elf for Health challenge – a Circuit Workout! Since I was running short on time, I powered through it at a really fast pace, so I definitely kept my heart rate elevated and kicked my own butt!
I love doing circuit workouts at the gym, especially if I’m doing resistance training for endurance. Yesterday’s workout was 2 sets of 20 reps for each circuit, with no rest between each exercise. I rested about 1 minute before moving on to the next circuit.
I’m loving coming up with a few new workouts for myself, just for fun, during this holiday challenge. Since I’m not training for anything specific right now and I’m still thinking about what my next goal will be, it’s been refreshing to just have fun at the gym and enjoy trying new combinations and exercises.
It’s also been fun to see what workouts all my fellow elves have been trying. You can search the hashtag #Elf4Health on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook for some great workout inspiration for yourself! 🙂
What’s your favorite way of strength training?
When was the last time you tried a new workout?
