This was day 4 of my 5 day workout challenge and I think that this workout was the hardest so far. It took me only 15 minutes and 15 seconds (I wasn’t counting the short breaks in between the combos), but it was hell. My buns still hurt from this workout and it’s been two days already
I think that it’s amazing what you can accomplish without any fitness equipment using just your own bodyweight. Not that I wouldn’t enjoy cool things like pull up bars, dip stations, and other equipment that you can use at home, but knowing that you can have a great workout without it, is liberating. We both love traveling and if you have been following us for some time, you know that we lived in Malta for a few months and I didn’t have anything except my gymnastic rings. Then we went to Prague for about 3 months and we were using a pull up bar, dip station, and kettlebells, but we had to leave it all behind, because it would be just too expensive to travel with all of the equipment. I am still planning on using different pieces of bodyweight equipment in the future, and we have a new dip station and pull up bar on the way.
In today’s workout you will need only your timer to keep track of your score. I was using my new camouflage Gymboss Interval Timer (click the blue link for more info). This timer is the only thing that I am using in every one of my workouts.
WORKOUT BREAK DOWN:
Jump Squats and Push Ups - Do two jump squats and 1 jump tuck, than get immediately into the plank and do 2 half way down push ups and for the 3rd one power up and jump your feet forward into a squat. Complete 15 sets of this combo as fast as you can. My score was 3 minutes and 16 seconds.
Do 10 Kick Ups, turn over and do 10 Mountain Climber Peaks. Complete 6 sets of this combo as fast as possible. My score was 2 minutes and 23 seconds.
Do 10 reps of One Leg Pike Press, than jump your foot forward and get immediately into the One Leg Squat position. Do 10 One Leg Jump Squats. Complete 4 sets of this combo on one leg and then complete another 4 sets of this combo on the other leg. My score was 7 minutes and 12 seconds
20 reps of My Push Ups. Alternate the sides and count each push up as one rep. My score was 2 minutes and 24 seconds.
I have explained all of the exercises at the end of the video. Enjoy your workout and I’ll be back soon with another torture.
