For everybody who asked for descriptions of the exercises in Craig Ballantyne's 7-Minute Weight Loss Circuit , I looked up some links and video clips for you. Some of the demos show weights, but these would all be done without weight for the body weight circuit.
Close-grip Push-up - that's the hand position, but obviously you would do these on the floor unless you're a weakling with Barbie arms. ;-)
Speaking of workouts. I lost my mind this morning and signed up for WorkoutPass.com. I wasn't going to because it's $99 and I really ought to quit spending money like a drunk sailor, but everybody's been talking about it and I can't stand the thought that I'm missing something. Since I'm working out at home now, I could use some new ideas to keep it fresh.
WorkoutPass.com gives you access to a collection of websites with thousands of workouts for every goal imaginable, and not like lame generic workouts, but proven routines from top trainers like Alwyn Cosgrove, Craig Ballantyne and Eric Cressey. There are MMA workouts, kettlebell workouts, body weight workouts, ab workouts, agility workouts, fat loss workouts. There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, ... sorry, lapsed into a Forest Gump moment. Anyway, it's a TRUCKLOAD of workouts and a pretty impressive array of free goodies. I was looking through all the bonus e-books you get for joining. In addition to material from Gourmet Nutrition and Turbulence Training, there are like 27 more e-books that I don't own and don't have any idea what they are. I can't wait to download them all onto The Precious. :-)
All of the workouts include an animated demonstration of each exercise, which is nice because sometimes you just can't figure out what the hell people are talking about from a photo and a vague description. The animations make it really clear. What's hilarious though, is when you pull up the workout page, all of the little characters start going through their exercises at once. I nearly spit Diet Pepsi all over my keyboard because it reminds me of the hamster dance, dee dee dee da dee dee do do...
