New Workout Routine

New Workout Routine

It is time for me to switch up my workout routine again!

Okay, I actually have done half a week of the new routine already but I wanted to post it anyways. I wore my fitness watch so I could put down the number of calories I burned (estimated).

Without further ado….here are my workouts!

Upper body days ( two times per week)

Circuit (3X)-

  1. Eight minutes of cardio
  2. Chest press
  3. Chest flyes
  4. Bent over rows
  5. Back flyes
  6. Overhead presses
  7. Lateral raises
  8. Hammer curls
  9. Triceps kickbacks
  10. Regular pushups
  11. Triceps pushups

After doing the eight minutes of cardio, I then move through the weighlifting exercises with very minimal rest. Each circuit is done three times through.

First workout burned 337 calories and I had a max heart rate of 171.

Lower body days (two times a week)

Circuit (3X)-

  1. Eight minutes of cardio
  2. Regular squats
  3. Regular deadlifts
  4. Reverse lunges
  5. Stiff legged deadlifts
  6. Legs-together squats
  7. Plie squats
  8. Bridges
  9. Pilates leg lifts

This is done just like the upper body workout is.

First workout done burned 315 calories and my maximum heart rate was 164.

Cardio and abs days (two days per week)

For cardio, I have been doing a combination of different calisthenics with a lot more burpees being the change from my last workout routine. After I get done, I do two sets of ab moves (bicycle crunches and pike crunches).

First workout done burned 309 calories and my maximum heart rate was 152.

These calorie numbers look low, don’t they?

I thought I would be burning more calories than this due to the amount of effort that I felt was going into them. I have to remember though that I am not a large person so my numbers will be lower.

I still love doing these workouts despite the calories burned and I know that they will do a lot of good for my body.

What is your workout routine looking like these days?

Thanks for reading!
