“Rainy Day” {at-home} circuit workout! {2 versions!}

Hello again!

The answer is no, pigs are not flying! The question to that answer? Are you really posting 2 consecutive days in a row? Trust me, I wasn’t planning on it but, when I woke up and heard the rain pouring I knew I didn’t want to venture out in the rain to go to Stroller strides  class and knew that since I wasn’t going then I needed to come up with something at home that I could do with Z around. {<——yes I know this is a run-on sentence, deal with it!}

So, my plan was to do a circuit workout and wanted to try to use most of the fitness equipment that I actually have. Luckily, thanks to my Body Back instructor experience it was relatively easy to come up with a good circuit workout!

Here is a shameless, not so shameless, company promotion: If you are local to my area, you can find out first hand what my workouts are like by registering for a Body Back session 🙂 New session starts Monday, January 5, 2015 (space is limited!)

I will give you 2 versions of my circuit. The first version (the one I did) includes some fitness equipment (I will go over which ones I used) and the second version is NO EQUIPMENT NEEDED!

Before I even got started with my workout area, I turned on Z’s favorite movie, Cars, in the hopes that would keep him distracted for the duration of the workout. What actually happened? That lasted only for the first 6 minutes. I only got 6 exercises in to round 1 when he went to find me and was then completely disinterested in watching the movie. **face palm**

And this was my view for the rest of the workout:

He also joined in on some of the exercises and quickly started pretending to be my personal trainer:

For some odd reason, Z wouldn’t let me use the stability ball so, I had to change-up the dancing bug to a v-up instead.

Alright, enough of me blabbering on…..here is what really brought you here (I assume anyway)


1st version:

Equipment needed: Kettle bell, stability ball, barbell, hand weights, and Valslides

**I got Valslides in my first Mizzfit’s Quarterly box and this was my first time using them. I love them! They bring a whole other level of intensity to your average mountain climbers! Valerie Waters is the genius behind Valslide, you can go to her website to read more about it–>>

The weights I used were small since I am just starting off.

barbell: total of 10lbs

handweights: 5 lbs each

kettlebell: 20lbs

Yeah, I told ya! I can run for hours but, my overall strength isn’t that great. I’m working on it!

2nd version:

Equipment needed: only a mat if needed!

"Rainy Day" at-home circuit no equipment needed!

Do you do at-home workouts? Which sites/DVDs are your favorites?

  1. Good at home ideas. I haven’t seen those valslides is a few years-I know I used to have them somewhere around here
