Thursday’s Running Circuit

I don’t own a trend mill. So when it’s nice out, I usually try to plan my workout outside and include the dreaded running.

Today I decided to complete a running/HIIT/strength training circuit workout. Since I don’t own a lot of gym equipment, I plan full body workouts with higher repetitions.

Higher repetitions help tone and build my muscle endurance, instead of building or “bulking” my muscle mass. Plus I feel like this style training works best for body type.

Here’s the exact workout I did today:

A few quick tips for the workout:

  1. The 2 minutes of running should be at your 5-6 on the rated perceived exertion rate (scale of 1-10). It was hard for me to talk after the 2 minutes of running.
  2. Take breaks when you need one. I didn’t schedule breaks bc you need to make it YOUR own workout.
  3. Remember to warm up and cool down!

I hope y’all enjoy the workout because I did!

I plan to do it again and beat my time.
