Short Circuits: The Basement Workout (PODCAST)
Hey everyone – time for something a little different here at Angry Trainer Fitness!
As you know we’re always listening to your comments and one of the notes we receive constantly is ‘can we have more exercise demonstrations’ on the site!
Trust me, I know where you’re coming from. It’s very hard to write a description of an exercise – and for all of you out there to visualize the movements. With that in mind we will be running a lot more video in the New Year – and in fact have a rather exciting new partnership to announce very soon on that front.
But we’re also going to try something else. Ever wanted to have The Angry Trainer right there with you in the gym, working out with you? Well now you can!
Yep we’re going to be trying a little something called Short Circuits where I’ll be walking you through an exercise cycle as you listen along.
Today’s circuit is called the Basement Workout and yep, I recorded it myself this morning in my basement (you can even hear the echo!) It’s really simple. The workout consists of the exercises listed below and I used my Gym Boss interval timer to time 25 second sets with 15 seconds rest in-between. You’ll hear the interval timed beeps at the same time as I do, and I’ll cue you in with proper form along the way.
One pass through the circuit will take about 7 ½ minutes, so if you have time run through it 2, 3, heck even 4 times! All you need to do is head to Itunes – all my podcasts are under the name Angry Trainer Fitness – become a subscriber and you’ll instantly be able to download this circuit onto your iPhone or iPod. Then just take it with you to the gym and voila – instant Angry Trainer with you as you workout. (BTW if you’re not a subscriber you can still download the circuit – it’ll just take a day or so to go live)
Got it? Okay – here’s the circuit…
1. Jumping Jacks
2. Pushups with Alternating Knee Pull Forward
3. Jump Squats
4. Alternating Reverse Lunge with Dumbbell Biceps Curls
5. Alternating T–Planks
6. Dumbbell Squat & Press
8. Mountain Climbers
9. Shoulder Taps
10. Bent Over Dumbbell Row
11. High Knees
Let me know what you think in the comments section below. If you like this idea we’ll run lots more of these Podcasts in the New Year – but you need to let me know!

Today I’m sharing another Classic ATF post that is worth taking a look at again. Last September I posted this mat / floor routine to show all of you that a great workout can be found in many forms. In this case, I demonstrated how going through a circuit of ten exercises right in your…

Hey! So check this out, I have another awesome video workout for you today. And it doesn’t get much simpler than this. Everyone has two dumbbells lying around the house right? Well dust them off, look for them under the bed or beneath the boxes in your garage. Because today you’re going to actually use…

There are very few exercises that actually scare me when I see some people performing them. Well… the deadlift is one of one! I’m sure you’ve seen this in your local gym – people hunched over a bar loaded up with weight, exhibiting terrible form and looking like they’re going to break their back in…

Time for another workout here at Angry Trainer Fitness and this one is possibly our toughest program to date! I call this one the Wipeout workout because you should be totally spent by the time you’re finished! The big difference in this routine from most of my other regimes is that you’ll repeat each circuit…

Hey Angry Trainer! Been a fan/follower of yours for as long as I’ve been a GNC employee, so about 2 years now. I must say I love your approach to fitness and this lifestyle, debunking all kinds of myths that exist out there. My question is this – I’m doing a 10-12 mile Tough Mudder…

Hi Alfonso, I am sooooo needing to lean out after a rough year and emotional eating. I have about 10–15 pounds I want to lose but just can’t get cut again. I love Zuzana’s workouts but I wonder if that is enough to lean out alone or if I need to go back to traditional…

Hey Alfonso, I’m really confused. I’ve read so many articles about circuit training, intervals, HIIT training, muscle confusion and metabolic circuits? My friend did a metabolic circuit while I was using P90X and he looks much better than I do. He lost more fat and looks like he gained more muscle. Can you explain what…
