Do Anywhere Workout

With the Pinterest craze there are so many quick workouts at our fingertips. I often use these for a group I plan workouts for on Wednesday mornings at the local high school. We spend about 45 minutes working out-HARD! It is a rare occasion we are not sore for our Friday morning run. It is so fun to mix and match all the body weight exercises and come up with new ways to make our bodies strong.

Make the following workout any length you want. Keep in mind, this is your workout. You need to push yourself to see results or maintain the strength you've worked hard to build.

PUSH UPS
WALKING LUNGES
TRICEP DIPS
JUMPING JACKS
PLANK JACKS
SUMO SQUATS
ALTERNATING SIDE PLANK
FOR THE FINALE:
BURPEES

If you are just starting, DO 10 of each exercise. If you have more in you, go through the whole routine again.
If you are more advanced try a pyramid type of workout starting with 10 push ups, 15 walking lunges (each leg), 20 tricep dips, increase by 5 until you get to sumo squats when you would do 20 sumo squats, 15 alternating side planks (per side). You could also do a reverse pyramid starting with 25 push ups, 20 walking lunges, and so on. At the end of  every 2-3 exercises you could also add in a 30 second sprint to make it more of an intensity interval and bring up the fat burn.

There is really so much you can do with any workout. I would love your feedback on how you did this workout. It is great to hear from you!

  2. I am the worst at strength training! I did it regularly for all of 2013, but I've slacked off again. Time to jump back on the bandwagon!

    Found you just blog hopping around! Wanted to say hi!

    1. I'm so glad you found me. I hope to do more with the blog this coming year. Running gives such a bigger high than strength training, it's easy to leave it by the way side.
