The One-More-Oreo Circuit

Okay, so I just got back from the best workout ever. I was in a bit of a workout rut, so to speak, and needed to spruce it up a bit. My sister and I have been doing WiiFit Yoga for the last couple days and it's pretty excellent, I'm not going to lie. However, it isn't exactly the "hardcore workout" I'm looking for.

Well... I've sure as hell found it. I took this circuit workout from Mrs. How Sweet and changed it around a bit. A lot of her beginning moves works a lot of arms, and as I'm sure some of you know - I have a bum shoulder. Not only that, but my arms immediately inflate when I do something as little as pick up my cup of coffee and I just don't want body-builder arms.

I call this the One-More-Oreo Circuit. It sucks. It's awesome. I hate it. I love it.

Warm up: 10 minutes of light/moderate cardio (I chose running on the treadmill at 6.5 mph)

15 pushups

20 alternating lunges

20 squats

10 squat jumps

15 situps

20 second pushup position hold

5 minutes of intense elliptical 

15 side crunches to each side

20 alternating side lunges (each side)

30 second wall sit

10 squat thrusts

5 minute 30-second treadmill intervals (walk @ 3mph, run @ 7.5/8 mph)

20 walking lunges

60 second plank

30 crunches

30 second pulsing plank 

30 reverse crunches

60 second plank

20 open squatted elbow-knee touches 9each side)

5 minute 30-second treadmill intervals

Now, like i said - I am not really a weight-girl because of my previous issues, but you can add weights to whatever you'd like. Theoretically I'd like to do another set of this, but I wouldn't be here to write this post if I did one more exercise. Now I'm going to go die, but maybe have an Oreo first. I hate myself.

One of my favorite workout songs. Always get me pumped.


  1. I'm doing this workout tonight. If I am slightly out of shape, will this be impossible to complete?

  2. Umm, you'll definitely be sore hte next day. I'm not the most in shape and I was okay while doing it, but the next day was soo sore! Good sore though :)
