Fit February | Circuit Training

Today is quite a different post for me and is a topic I've never really spoken about on my blog before: fitness. My fitness story is a bit of a joke really, I tend to go through a phase of being really active and getting to the point where I feel like my fitness is quite good and then I'll fall off the bandwagon and find it really difficult to get back on it again. Since my gym membership ran out in September of last year I haven't done any exercise apart from walking and the odd workout video and I'm really feeling it. I'm determined to get back into it and I've decided February is the month I'm going to get back on it! I then thought if I logged my progress on here then I would have no excuses to not exercise because it doesn't make a very interesting post if I say I haven't been doing anything!


For my first week of 'Fit February' I'm doing circuit training. I started on Monday and doing them every other day (my legs definitely can't take every day when I first start!). I decided on circuits because I find doing circuits really gets my fitness up fast because of their intensity. I'm going to list my workout below so you can see what I've been doing and then you can try it too if you fancy! I do need to stress that I'm definitely not a fitness expert and although these circuits were given to me by a personal trainer I've switched them around a bit to suit me!

Circuit 1

10 x squat jumps

10 second rest

10 x plyo lunges (jumping straight from one lunge into the other)

10 second rest

10 x burpees (squat to a press up to a jump to a squat etc)

10 second rest

Repeat whole circuit three times.


Circuit 2

15 x crunches

15 second rest

15 x Russian twist with feet up

15 second rest

15 seconds plank

15 second rest

Repeat whole circuit three times.


Circuit 3

15 x press ups (I do them with my knees on the floor!)

15 second rest

15 secs left side plank

15 second rest

15 secs right side plank

15 second rest

Repeat whole circuit three times.


I purposefully do the circuit I find the most difficult first to get it out of the way and I get so tired after these even though they only take about half an hour. I would love to hear what you do for a workout as fitness inspiration is definitely needed right now! Also if you've written any posts about fitness please leave me the link so I can go and read them!
