Hello from sunny Florida!
I traded in my toque and boots, for a bathing suit and flip flops this week. I’m spending the week with the family, just relaxing and taking it easy. Why is it that time goes by so quickly when you don’t want it to?
Its been great being able to sleep in (!!! which I never get to do at home), enjoy endless cups of coffee outside, go for bike rides, shop at target, watch Netflix, swim, and get in some great workouts like the circuit below. I don’t miss the cold at all.
Anyway – one thing that I am missing is my GYM. I miss the amazing group classes, the massive turf field, the sauna, and all the equipment I could ever dream of. The gym here is quite small, and usually quite busy. I found myself a room that I think is a yoga room (?), thats basically always empty to do some workouts in. Only problem is, there isn’t much equipment available. I created a minimal equipment circuit that basically anyone can do, anywhere, with just a yoga ball, 2 sets of dumbbells, and a yoga mat!
It’s a great full-body circuit, guaranteed to work up a sweat. I was pretty out of breath on certain moves… no shocker since burpees always totally GAS ME. I suggest completing the circuit 3 times if you can! Scale back if you need it, and rev it up if you can handle it!
Minimal Equipment Circuit
- Yoga Ball V-Pass – 15 Reps
- Should Press Burpee Jumps – 20 Reps
