Body Weight Workout

February 3, 2012 · 36 comments

Time for some Friday fun… a workout you can do in the comfort of your own home (office? friend’s house? backyard? mall? whatever) without owning a weight!

I’ve combined some exercises from Teri‘s Xspin class plus some of my favorite moves to create a total body weight workout. Add weights if you wish – I like to add weights to my lunges, squats, and Russian twists.

Pin It

And, for those of you who are visual learners and don’t recognize the names of some of the above moves:

Happy Friday, ever’baady. Tell me something awesome you’re doing this weekend. I’ll be working all night long.

Oops, I spoke on twitter too soon. Thanks for the burpee link. I’m learning. It’s a slow, painful process 🙂

Awesome workout – thanks! I’m always looking for new workouts!
The only thing we really have going on this weekend is a superbowl party. I like the food and the commercials!

I have a long run planned so fingers crossed it stays semi-not freezing in chicago so I’m not stuck on the treadmill for hours…

I just pinned this workout, then I looked closer because I’m probably not even close to strong enough to try and do a lot of those exercises. I gotta work out my upper body strength for sure! Thanks for my new “goal” workout!

Wow…that real burpee mile looks like pure and utter death. I didn’t watch the whole thing…do any of them throw up? Cause I totally would.

Have family in town tomorrow! Going to see Les Miz in Tampa and have all around rockin’ time 🙂

I’m so glad I finally know what burpees are and why everyone hates them so much..

This looks like a great workout to do before the Super Bowl and I party down with all of the great food and drinks.

Thanks for the workout idea. I like to do at-home workouts on the weekends. Hitting the gym on a Saturday morning is simply too much to ask of me.

Oh mountain climbers. Such killers. Great work out ideas.

P.S. I tagged you so look at my last post on what you can do next!

Thank you so much, I’ve done several of your workouts now and I love them… quick question on the squat holds and mtn climbers/russian twists, how long should we hold the squat and does each knee in/twist count as one for the mtn climbers & russian twists? Thank you! 🙂
