Heh, I almost typed circus there 😉

For days that I don’t want to (or can’t make it) to the gym I do a circuit.  It typically lasts about 30-45 mins (depending on how much dillydallying I choose to do between sets).

Circuit A.  To be done 3 times.  Each exercise is done :45 the first time, :35 then :25.  Between each circuit rest 2-3 minutes depending on how you feel.

  • Planks
  • Lunges
  • Pushups
  • Row
  • Squats
  • Bear Pushups
  • Supermans
  • Bicycle
  • Calf Raises
  • Dips

I do have other variations this circuit, mostly substituting different ab exercises in (flutter kicks, scissors, leg lifts etc.) I usually don’t use dumbbells because I don’t really do this stuff at the actual gym — mostly in my dorm room — but you totally could if you wanted to.


  1. What are bear pushups?

    • You walk your body out to a pushup position, do a pushup, then walk back upright.
