The 15-minute Workout You Can Do Anywhere


Summer is just a few weeks away guys!  The magical season when you're forced to factor in extra time to apply sunscreen and top off that hydration system before heading out to get in your day's sweat.

We know that bikini season is rapidly approaching, so, in search of a better way to be as prepared as possible, we designed a 15-minute spring workout series to keep us feeling (and heck, looking) good. Fifteen minutes? Yep, we can dig it.

These are no-nonsense workouts - You can do them at home - No special equipment needed. To us, it's all about keeping it simple. Warning: Simple does not mean easy - these workouts should kick your butt. And if you're going to do something, it's best to get the most bang for your buck or, the most bang for your... 15 minutes!

Give 'em a try and let us know how you did.

This workout follows the principal of high-intensity interval training, meaning you will have short bursts of high-intensity work followed by a less intense recovery period. It’s designed to push you in the moment and is proven to burn more calories throughout the day. Think about it like you are throwing logs in the fire, the bigger the logs, the longer the burn lasts.

Now, onto the workout. All you need for this one is a stopwatch and a competitive spirit—it’s you vs you.

EXERCISES

5 minutes of 9:1 broad jumps/burpees

• 5 minutes of Mountain Climbers

• 5 minutes of 9:1 broad jumps/burpees
 


 

Part 1
 

Set a 5-minute timer, and, as fast as you can, without losing technique, do:

• 9 broad jumps then 1 burpee

• Then 8 broad jumps and 2 burpees

• And so on for 7-3, 6-4, 5-5……….1-9

The workout ends once you finish with 1 broad jump and 9 burpees or when the 5:00 minutes expires Spoiler alert: If you don’t finish, don’t worry—you’ll get another chance

 

 

 
HOW TO DO A BROAD JUMP

 
1. Start with two feet on the ground behind a yoga mat or marker

2. Using power and control, jump past a designated point (your choice but jumping the length yoga mat is a great challenge)

3. Land softly and safely with both feet at the same time

4. Turn around quickly, and broad jump back to your original starting position

HOW TO DO A BUPREE

2. Lower your body into a squatting position while, at the same time, placing both hands on the floor in front of you (shoulders over the wrist like a push-up)

3. Kick both feet back so that you are in a plank

4. While keeping your body rigid, lower your chest for a push-up

5. Hop back up to position 2

6. Rise up to standing position and take a small hop—clap hands at the top of the jump to signify a rep well-done
