*Here are a couple circuit training exercises. All body weight movements. These are good to do when you are limited on equipment.
Warm Up: Legs.
-5 minute Leg Circuit
WOD#1: Abs/Core. Use a stop watch or timer for this workout. Do 40 seconds of work and rest for 20 seconds. After every round take a minute to rest.
-40 secs. ON/ 20 secs. OFF (2-4 Rounds)
Cool Down: Cardio.
- 10 Minute Calorie Row OR Run
* These workouts are intended for speed and strength. They may seem short, but you will burn a lot and sweat a lot with these HIIT's(High Intensity Interval Training). Try to knockout each WOD with as little rest as possible. Take your break in between WOD's. Control your breathing. To make it more challenging, add more weight or more reps. Use this as a basis. If it is too challenging, do less weight, but keep the reps. Again, each workout is a timed event, so make sure to record that. Try it again later on and try to beat your previous time.
WOD#1: Dumb bell full body workout. Make sure to choose a weight you will be able to do unbroken, but still be a little challenging. I used 25 lb dumbbells for this. Took rest after each round, but kept a good pace. Record your time.

It's a hottttt day in Houston,TX. Hit about 85 degrees at 9am this morning, and the humidity was a little intense.
I was joined by a few friends today and made it a group effort. We pushed each other to work harder with each aching exercise lol. Rest was definitely needed in between sets, but we managed to keep our morals up.

SORRY for the lack of work outs last week. The best way to recover and heal is rest and that is exactly what I needed. I will switch between a heavy load of workouts or light load some weeks. This process of tricking your muscles will help with muscle growth and strength.
"Push It To The Limit"
WOD#1: Push Workout(Chest, Tri's, Shoulders)Get a weight that will help you get to a minimum of 15 reps. Of course if you go heavy, scale it down to 10-12 reps. I went lighter volume for more reps to help with strength.
*Less weight/More Reps = Tone, Lean
*More weight/Less Reps= Muscle mass, bulking
