Total body Circuit Workout (and video)

This is a total body circuit workout you can do anywhere! All you need is a pair of dumbbells and a mat. As always, talk with a doctor before making any fitness or nutrition changes. Watch my friend Katie in the video for prenatal, postpartum, and low-impact modifications.

Hi friends! This is the first official workout for Summer Shape Up. (Yesterday was an off day, so I hope you’re ready to crush it today!) This is one of my favorite workouts I’ve put together for the blog… which says a lot since I’ve created quite a few in the last 11 years. It’s extremely balanced, hits every muscle group, and has you breaking a serious sweat. I hope you love this one! Even if you’re not participating in the Shape Up, try it out this week on a total body training day, or pin it for the next time you need some workout inspiration.

Here’s what the workout looks like:

This is a total body circuit workout you can do at home (or anywhere!) with only a pair of dumbbells. Get the full video on fitnessista.com ,along with a free 4 week summer shape up fitness and nutrition plan.

    Just did this workout, with a few modifications (thanks to Katie!) since I’m about 6 months postpartum and easing back into working out! Phew, I worked up a sweat – feels good, though! Thanks for going through all three rounds – that is so motivating and nice to feel like I’m working out with other people 🙂 Looking forward to a great SSU! Are you doing a FB group for it this year? Thanks again for all of the work that you put into this!!

    • Fitnessista on June 24, 2019 at 4:17 pm

      so happy you got a great workout! yes, katie is amazing!
      no Facebook group this year. it’s a lot of extra work and the engagement was really low last time

      • Katie on June 25, 2019 at 12:14 pm

        Completed this morning! It was a tough one! I think I took for granted how in shape I was doing your workouts pre baby and during pregnancy. Started feeling really sick about 11mo post partum for about 6mo (thanks hormone changes…), so just getting back into workouts. I think summer shape up will help me get back into it! Thanks

        • Fitnessista on June 25, 2019 at 2:10 pm

          so happy to hear you’re getting back into the swing of things and feeling better! great job <3

    Sore from yesterday workout and back from a 10k run, I wanted to give it a try and loved it…..although my body told me that one round was enough….looking forward to do it entirely !

    • Fitnessista on June 24, 2019 at 4:15 pm

    Did this workout last night with some tiny adjustments- also added 1 other exercise (bike crunches). Gave myself 1 minute of rest between each 9 minutes. definitely a good sweat!
