Hey! the title of this blog is Crazy, Flexy, Cool, which was actually one of the original names of Flex and Shout. It basically sums up my approach to life…and my love for TLC (Don’t Go Chasin’ Waterfalls, ya’ll).
Last night after lounging on the deck for awhile, I dragged Chris to the gym to do another Fat Loss Five Circuit Workout. I wrote this one myself and it was HARD! Man, I’m a really good trainer 😉 What I really like about these workouts is that since each circuit takes 5 minutes, it’s easy to determine how long (or short!) your workout will be. I wrote this one to be 45 minutes, but a few different situations made it a bit longer (like the lack of jump ropes or the distance between the weight area and the TRX). Anyway, give this one a try! It is not for the faint of heart, so make sure to warm up and fuel appropriately for this sweatfest!
Fat Loss Five Circuit Workout
Each circuit contains a push, pull, lower body, core and cardio exercise. Complete each strength activity for 30 seconds (or 15s per side) with 15 seconds rest between and each cardio exercise for 1 minute (total circuit time is 5 minutes including rest). Rest at least 1 minute between circuits, repeat each circuit 3 times total.
- Prisoner Squat
- Push-up with T roll
- Jump Rope
- Walking Lunge
- TRX Push-up
- TRX Y-Up
- Foot fire (drop to burpee every 15 seconds)
- Step ups
- Alternating bent over Row
- Break dancer Push-up
- Walking Plank
Give it a try and let me know how you like it! I’d love to hear from all of you!
In other news! Check out the crops and headband I’m wearing above! Both are from Katie K Active and they effing ROCK! Katie K Active is a newer company that caters to every woman and I am lucky enough to be an ambassador for the brand!

The Katie K Active Signature Collection is the perfect blend of STYLE MEETS FUNCTION for your daily sweat sessions. The Katie K Active Signature Collection ends the search for a versatile wardrobe that will take you from yoga class, to the gym, to your coffee date, and everywhere in between. With the Katie K Active Signature Collection, you and your girlfriends can feel great about how you look while working out, or even on those crazy days that you didn’t quite make it to the gym. The Katie K Active Signature Collection with double-fit technology will ELEVATE YOUR CONFIDENCE, giving you the motivation to perform at your best.
They carry sizes small-3x and believe that every women, regardless of size, deserves to have cute, comfortable, well-fitting workout attire! I am wearing the Signature Capri’s and the Signature Headband in Coral. The crops are definitely not like any others that I own. At first glance, I was not into them at all. They have a high rise, curved hips, and a narrow waist band, which typically does not work on a narrow-hipped, long-waisted lady like myself. BUT, the fabric is SO soft (and absorbent!) that they really mold to the female body. These things are freaking amaze. They don’t budge while running, squatting, skipping, sitting on my ass, etc. ALSO! They have a secret, hidden pocket on the right leg that is the perfect iPhone spot (although, make sure to put your phone in your pocket while standing still, otherwise you’ll end up with an iPhone 5C Smash…like me…).
The headband is also really great. It’s a good width so it doesn’t make my ears poke out and it doesn’t slide backward while working out. I have two and wear them all.the.time. I have particularly wild hair lately as the humidity increases, and headbands are a must!
In case I haven’t convinced you enough…Katie K is having a major sale this week only! When you use the code Rebecca40, you will receive 40% off all orders over $75. FORTY PERCENT! Seriously, give this company a try, you will not regret it! Sale ends June 20!
