New Program- Full Body 1

My split routine for the last 8 weeks has really straightened out my exercise addiction- only once a day has become comfortable and reasonable again. I wasn't anxious or stressed about only exercising once a day and so I think a more healthy pattern of activity is starting to fit on me again. Gosh- more than a year after that fitness competition I'm finally getting back into a healthy, balanced schedule. It takes time to heal.
I'm now on a 6 week full body routine which alternates between 3 different total body circuits which I modified from one I found in an old Oxygen magazine. This one took slightly less than 30 min and got my heartrate going.
Total Body Workout 1
3x / week on alternate days, needs only dumbbells
Dumbbell squats
Push Ups
Bent Over Dumbbell Row
Shoulder Press
Hammer Curl
Jump rope (60 seconds)
Complete this entire circuit 3x one after another using 12-15 reps

Again this took less than 30 minutes, so when I was done, I hopped on the treadmill for some light, low impact cardio walking (20 min).

Wanna see the next week?
Or the week after?
How about the entire program?
