Ready, Set, Sweat Workout

Posted on Tuesday, September 27th, 2011 at 7:32 am

 

Hello hello!

 

Have I got a fun workout for you today! 

 

This workout left me in such a good mood that if you’re feeling down or low on energy, you must give it a try. 

 

All it takes is 15 minutes and if you still can’t fit that in, then just do 1 round of the exercises which should only take 5 minutes. 

 

Now who can’t find the time to fit in 5 minutes? 

 

Your health is worth it.  You are worth it.  Make yourself a priority and give yourself the attention that you deserve. 

 

I must warn you though… get ready to sweat! 

 

As always, beginner variations are included in the video:

 

 

 

 

Workout Details:

Set your interval timer to two intervals: 10 seconds of rest and 50 seconds of work.

 

If you don’t have an interval timer, just keep track of your time on a watch that has a second hand.

 

There are 5 exercises and you will push yourself as hard as you can during those 50 seconds. Perform the entire circuit three times for a total of 15 minutes.

 

Here are the exercises:

 

1. Single Leg Get-Up (Left Leg):

The goal of this exercise is to lye down and stand up using one leg without using your hands.  It looks easy, but will work your whole body.

 

2. Single Leg Get-Up (Right Leg):

Same as above but use the other leg. 

 

3. Stationary Donkey Kicks:

When doing the kicks, try to keep your shoulders above your hands to really target the posterior shoulder.

 

4. Ball Hip Raise Roll Out:

Amazing exercise for the glutes (bum) & hamstrings (back of the thighs). Make sure to keep your hips elevated when you roll the ball out and bring it back in.

 

5. Reversed Ball Jacks:

Really good for the core and shoulders. Make sure that you suck your belly button in towards your spine throughout this exercise and keep breathing.

 

Repeat the circuit three more times and hit the shower!

 

I hope you enjoy the workout.  Any suggestions for the next workout? Please leave me your comments.
