1 Fat Blasting Circuit, 1 Recipe, Abdominal Re-training for mom

One great mom fat blasting circuit.  2 rounds of this are sufficient and will leave you gasping for your next breath.

1. Burpie Shoulder Press, 2. Front Chop, 3 and 4. 1 arm Dumbbell Snatch each side, 5.  jump squats. Repeat these continuously and then rest 3 minutes before completing these 10 exercises again.

If you need to make modifications you can perform fast dead-lifts for your front chops, 1 sided squat and press instead of the combination move the dumbbell snatch.

I tired this new recipes the other night from Nathan Jackson Fitness.  Squash Bisque– although it is supposed to be raw- I cooked it as I didn’t think I could slip that by the kids.  My modification for this tasty vegan recipe.

1 squash, 2-3 cups water, 1 red pepper, 2 celery stalks, 2 tsp sea salt, 2 tsp pepper, pinch of cayenne and cilantro to garnish.  I pureed this after the squash was cooked and it was tasty.

I was skeptical (as I mentioned to him) because there was no chicken stock, but it was great, no worries.  Thanks Nathan.

Are your abdominals really firing?  This week I had the pleasure of working with some new people and many of them thought there abs were fine- meaning they were firing properly doing what they should be doing.  After trying plank variations that were very difficult, we went through the lying leg lift series in phase 1, weeks 1 and 2 of the Baby Bump Busy Mom Fitness program, while drawing in abdominals.  Drawing in if you are early post partum or have some sort of back injury will give you a neural connection that has been lost or modified from your stretched abdominals.  These were the exercises that proved exhausting- mentally and physically. She had no idea her abdominals were not functioning properly.  Are you aware?  Do you have back discomfort?  Have you performed drawing in abdominal exercises such as phase 1 week 1-6, pilates or rehabilitation?  These are questions to ask yourself and if you fell your abdominals could be functioning better, this is where you want to start.  This is the start of a great fitness program.

Hey Jacqueline – great post – but bit confused on the circuit – are the numbers 1-5 for reps or just illustrating the order. If so how many reps of each exercise? Gonna try this circuit this week as my cardio blast!

Nisha, I just wrote1-5 to illustrate the order. If you have lots of resistance keep reps lower like 8 rep max- which is what I perfer. If you only have a weight that will not allow you to max at 8 reps, then use the simple 20 sec work/10 sec rest ratio to keep you on some sort of protocal.

Enjoy- Great Question
