Listen to learn a new way to make homemade pizza.
Burpees, grasshoppers, jump rope intervals…what’s next in our circuit workout? This week has the hardest circuit move so far. It works out every part of your body and after just one rep, you may feel ready to call it quits. This week we are adding man makers into our circuit workout.
For this move, you will need 5-15lb weights. Use dumbbells that feel somewhat heavy for you before you start your man maker reps. I use 8lb weights.
Start standing with your legs hip-distance apart with your dumbbells on the ground in front of you. Jump down to the ground and grab your dumbbells.
Do one pushup. Stay in pushup position and bending your right arm, bring it backward while holding the dumbbells. Return to pushup position and do the same for your left arm.
In pushup position grab both of your dumbbells. Jump up into a squat and bring your dumbbells to your ears. Stand up and bring the dumbbells overhead.
You have just finished one man maker. I usually do three sets of five in my circuit workouts. They are really exhausting if you are using the right amount of weights. A demonstration of a man maker can be found on the KTSW WordPress blog.
This recipe redo for this week is likely to fool your friends. This week we are giving pizza a makeover! Have you ever tried sweet potato pizza crust? Probably not, but it tastes amazing. The recipe I used is from Sweet Potato Junkie on BlogSpot.com. I follow the recipe exactly for the crust. As far as toppings goes, just keep it simple and healthy: spinach, tomatoes and basil maybe?
