#WW The ‘Tighten It Up’ Circuit

Are you in need of a new circuit to boost your motivation?

Those New Year resolutions are long forgotten, and some of us may even feel that we’ve regressed instead of progressed. But don’t fret! Our bodies develop at their own pace. The secret is to not give up!

So get a new workout, change your gym, or find a gym buddy who will help to motivate you. As a suitable option, try out this workout – you’ll be back in the gym, enjoying your training in no time.

What you need:

A bench and a kettlebell.

How to do it:

Perform 10 to 15 reps (per side where relevant) of each exercise. Perform at least 4 rounds! Perform these moves back-to-back, with a 2 minute rest between rounds.

The exercises: 

Bear crawls (with or without resistance band):

Get down on all fours. Keep your glutes elevated and crawl forward using a foot-to-hand motion. Go back and forth to complete one rep.

This exercise is well known among bootcamp attendees. It can be so much fun, and is quite the workout on its own.

Bench hops:

With your hands placed firmly on the bench, hop over to the left side and then immediately back over to the right.

Note: Make sure you lift your legs high enough so that you don’t fall over by making contact with the bench as you hop over.

Kettlebell hops:

Perform these in the same manner as a kettlebell swing, just hop your legs up off the floor on the upward motion, and repeat.

Squat to curl:

Hold a kettlebell by the horns and stand with a bench placed behind you. Squat down to touch the pad with your glutes. As you rise up, perform a curl with the kettlebell.

Step up to press:

Perform a step up with one side first. Holding the kettlebell in the opposite hand to your leading leg, press it up overhead as you reach the top of the step up. Repeat for the required reps on one side, then repeat on the other.
