May 25th is National Wine Day AND it's the start of Memorial Day weekend so we thought we'd have some fun creating a quick circuit you can do anywhere with just a few bottles of wine! (Talk about not having any excuses to skip a workout this weekend!)
Now, most wine bottles aren't terribly heavy. The rosé bottles Megan and I used weigh just under 3lbs each but that doesn't mean they won't be effective! We're focusing on moves you can do for high amounts of repetitions or that you can do for time!
We also understand that not everyone drinks alcohol and the great news is you can use almost any other items you have around the house, from detergent bottles to carry-on suitcases! It just takes a little imagination!
Let's grab our vino and go!
Perform each exercise back to back with little to no rest in between exercises. Aim for 3-4 rounds!
1A Forward Lunge With Wine Curl -- 12-15x on each side
1B Wine Bottle Dead Bugs -- 8x on each side, alternating legs
1C Single Leg Deadlift With Wine Press -- 15x on each side
1D Wine Drag In a Plank -- 8-10x on each side
1E Wine Swings -- 20x
Take a 1-minute rest between sets!
LET'S DO IT!

We'd like to send out a super special shoutout to Sandeep and Vinic Wine in Downtown Evanston! We LOVE our fellow small businesses around town and they were SO kind to let us use their space (isn't it so cool??). Can't wait to come in for a tasting and sit out on your patio this summer, friends!
In the meantime, have a great weekend and enjoy it responsibly ;)
