Leaving You Behind Circuit Workout

Happy Monday y’all!  I don’t know about you, but I feel like this month is flying by.  Christmas is a week and a half away, and the countdown to 2015 is freakishly close.  Holy wowza.  

Lately, my days of going for a long afternoon run are few and far between.  When I have such limited free time, I find it extra important to make my workouts as efficient as possible.  And c’mon, what’s more efficient than a circuit workout?  

This workout is inspired by the whole “I hate to see you go, but I love to watch you leave” concept.  While you’ll work pretty much your entire body, the emphasis is on the (ahem)…backside…today.  You’ll need free weights and about 30 minutes.  I used 10 lb and 15 lb dumbbells, but use the weights that are appropriate for your fitness level.

Note: To step it up, add in cardio before each set.  I ran a mile before I did the circuit each time, but find something that works for you.

What’s your favorite circuit workout?


  1. Hi Carly, nice work on this one. Definitely will get the heartrate up with those plyos and some extra cardio with running. I also love short and efficient workouts like this, unless of course, if I’m teaching group fitness, in which case it’s always an hour. Just love the name of your blog, by the way. so clever!

  2. Lunges have been my favorite lately!! Tripceps dips too. I’ve been working more on triceps push-ups. They are so tough!!
