My Favorite College Circuit

This is easily my favorite go-to workout when I want to burn some calories and feel sore for a few days! My college roommate and I did this one pretty much weekly, and it almost always cured our hangovers. If you do this with a partner, it makes the calorie burn even better because you two feel like you’re chasing each other! Plus, who doesn’t want to workout with their bestie?! πŸ‘―β€β™€οΈ

Try it out and let me know how you feel after two days πŸ˜‰

Start with the Deadlift, v-ups and kettlebell swings. We will call this our first circuit. Perform 10 deadlifts, 20 v-ups, and 10 kettlebell swings. Next round is 9 deadlifts, 18 v-ups, and 9 kettlebell swings. Do I need to keep going?? 8,16,8. 7,14,7. All the way down to 1,2,1. Then rest.

The idea is to keep moving and burn as many calories as you can. So try to complete the entire circuit without stopping. As for weights, we end up doing a lot of reps and at a fast pace. You shouldn’t be trying to max out. Pick something that is just under your max. Also keep in mind that the last few reps will feel tedious if you have picked something too light. Once you hit the round of 5,10,5, really start focusing on form. Sink lower in the deadlift, come all the way in on v-ups, really squeeze that booty on the kettlebell swings.

After your rest and water break, begin the next circuit of Squats, leg lifts, and figure eights. Use the same count-down pattern and focus on form when you get to the smaller repetitions.

🎱Figure 8’s are a lesser known exercise. Just sit in a low squat and weave the kettlebell around your legs in a figure 8 pattern. I usually count figure eights as 1 for each time you hand the kettlebell off to your other hand. The trick is trying to maintain your chest in an upright position. You don’t want crap squat form here!!
