A huge, huge pet peeve of mine is when people accuse me of eating “bird food” – or in other words, not eating much outside of seeds, salad and veggies – because I’m in shape/not overweight, etc. (I stray away from calling myself thin because I really think I’m average or normal size.) I have a particular friend who does this on a semi-regular basis. She asks what I’m having for lunch or what I had for breakfast, and then expresses disbelief in my menu and asks things like “you eat bread?” Really?! REALLY?!
We all see those amazing people who can do advanced moves in the gym like front flip burpees, headstands, handstands, one-arm push-ups and the like. But, what I always say is that while those moves are cool, they are not necessary to getting in shape. They don’t get you bigger muscles, either. Hell, some of us just aren’t coordinated enough to do them. So, I always say stick with basic moves and advance from there. A squat is a squat is a squat. So, this workout gives you those basic moves that will tone you all over (and don’t take up all of your time!) I would recommend you do each circuit at least twice. If you can’t get away at mid-day, add that circuit on to your morning and/or evening routine. You’ll see a difference in no time!
