She Works Hard and Makes Her Arms Strong Circuit
This week’s featured circuit is brought to you by Turbokick instructor, Britt Peck from Vernon, Connecticut. She was inspired by Proverbs 31:17 to create a circuit that help focus on jacking up your heart rate while helping tone your arms for the upcoming summer months. She believes fitness is an avenue to share God’s love, strength and encouragement with others while taking care of your body! A win-win!
You will need:
Nothing but yourself and a little motivation (and a smile!)
She works hard and makes her arms strong circuit:
After a 3-5 minute warm up (jump rope, jumping jacks or a light jog, etc.) repeat the following circuit four times with 30 seconds of rest in between each round.
Front jabs: Sitting back into your hips in a high squat position with your kept core tight, alternate left and right front jabs for one minute straight. Focus on keeping your arms strong and tight at shoulder height. Don’t forget to keep a slight bend in your elbows even while extending out. You never want to snap your elbow straight forward. Modification: Instead of a squat, stand tall with your knees slightly bent.
Squat w/ front kick: Keep weight on your heels as you sit back into a squat then come up and kick with your left leg. Repeat with another squat and kick with your right leg. Alternate squats and kicks with the left and right foot keeping your core tight and hands up in a guard position. Repeat for one minute straight. Modification: Squats with no kicks for one minute.
Mountain climbers: In a high plank position with your hands under your elbows keeping your core tight and your backs straight, alternate bringing your left knee forward then the right knee for one minute straight as fast as you can. Modification: Stay in a high plank for one minute.
Tricep dips w/ kicks: In a crab position with your arms under your shoulders and hands facing forward, bend elbows and kick left leg up then straighten your arms and bring your foot back to the ground. Alternate dips and kicking with your left and right leg for one minute straight. Modification: Regular tricep dips without kicks for one minute.
A little about Britt: Britt is an event manager by day and Turbokick instructor by night. She considers herself a “self-diagnosed sushi addict and consignment shop junkie” and believes Turbokick is her soul-mate workout. She enjoys working out with friends and loves encouraging others to find their own “soul-mate” workout to make working out something to look forward to instead of dread! Britt loves spending quality time laughing and relaxing with her husband who is currently in law school.
Britt’s statement of faith:
I believe that the Bible is the true Word of God. I believe in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and that Jesus came to this earth and died on the cross for all of our sins and rose again on the third day. I believe God desires to know each of us fully and to experience a unique and personal relationship with Him in order to find and fulfill our true purpose while here on earth.
