Workout Wednesday

13 Jul

For today’s Workout Wednesday post I bring you a very simple workout. Simple, but not easy.

I found a similar workout to this in a Men’s Health article about a year ago. The other day when I was brainstorming workouts for my clients to do I remembered it in all its sweaty glory.

The work out consists of 3 exercises: Burpees, Kettlebell swings and crunches (or sit ups if you can).

You start by doing 15 reps of each exercise in a row (15 burpees then 15 Kettlebell swings then 15 crunches). After you complete 15 reps then you do 14, then 13, then 12… All the way down to 1!

This workout is guaranteed to get your heart rate up and burn some serious calories. It is also the perfect workout to do when you are in a time crunch! If you do it with minimal rest it should take 20-25 minutes.

Try it out and let me know what you think!
