Fitness Magnetism Workout

Feb 27, 2013 by



Hello my Sweets,

I have another Lower Body Workout for you today, I wanted to make a workout for you guys before I leave town tomorrow. This routine took me about 27 minutes to complete, but I’m pretty sure some of you will beat my time.

I also wanted to let you know that because of me leaving town this past weekend, there was no Mingle this Monday, and there won’t be one the coming up Monday, cause I’m leaving again to see my friend ( the one I told you about a few Mingles ago ), so the next Monday Mingle will be on the 4th of March.

I also have another part of your questions that I need to post, but that I will try to get around to when I’m on my trip ( don’t worry I didn’t forget 🙂 )

I also want to share with you one more site for fitness equipment where you can buy pretty much anything workout related, they have a lot of equipment for home and gym use, the website is called Fitness Warehouse, check it out if you like to buy equipment online.

OK, now let’s get to today’s routine.

For everyone who is new to Loving Fit I recommend to check out ” Creating Your Workout Plan ” post. There you will be able to see how I put together my routines, and you can find something for your own fitness level. My philosophy is: Form is always more important than speed, so WATCH YOUR FORM!

Things to remember before, during and after your workout

  1. Warm-Up
  2. Always Practice Good Form
  3. Stretch



Workout Explanation


For this routine I was using my Gymboss timer and my sandbag ( I had about 23-25 lbs in there ), I’m trying to keep my sandbag weight low right now, because I notice just a slight increase in weight and I start growing bigger muscles on my legs than I would like. So, if your goal is to get bigger muscles, I suggest you increase your sandbag weight.

This workout has 2 parts, first part is done for Proper Form and Time, second part is Interval Training ( 7 minutes in length ).

Part 1

Set your timeras a stopwatch, complete 5 rounds of the following.

  • Pick-up Squat – 25 reps
  • Bodyweight Back Lunge Right Leg – 20 reps
  • Bodyweight Back Lunge Left Leg – 20 reps
  • Toe Lifts – 30 reps


( You can also use your sandbag for Back Lunges and Toe Lifts if you like, but make sure you’re not taking any breaks on the back lunges, if you feel like you need a break before completing all of your reps don’t use your bag )


Part 2

Set your timer for 2 intervals of 35/35 = 6 ( rounds ), or 1 interval of 12 rounds. There are 2 exercises back to back ( no breaks )

  • Twist Jump
  • Bag Swing


My time – it took me 20 minutes and 24 seconds to complete part one.


Have fun with this routine my sweets!

  • Hey!!! First!!! 🙂

    I wanted to wish you a most wonderful trip, Tatianna! And to thank you for everything. The way you present yourself, the positivity and good nature you live by, all of it–it really spreads goodness out to all your readers and out into the universe. I really think it makes the world a better place, and not just by getting people to work out. 🙂
    So, in conclusion:

    1. Have a great time!
    2. You rock
    3. FIIIIRRRSSST!!!!!!!!!! 😀

  • Wrote this down for Monday 🙂

  • Gerri Lee Schafer

    have a great time with your friend Tati, hope to get to spend a weekend with my best friend soon, just need the damn snow to melt on the mountain passes

    • Thanks love :), I actually can’t wait to see me some cold weather, I’m exited just thinking about it 🙂

  • FitJen

    Great workout Tatianna! (like always) 🙂 I hope you have a great vacation!

    I finished part 1 in 25 minutes but used a 20 lb sandbag for every exercise.

    I then added on some extra exercises for my butt, did 5 minutes of plank variations, and 20 minutes of cardio. Wooo I am beat!

  • KirryKaatje

    I’ve finished this workout this afternoon. I have used weight in every exercise, cause I want to built my chicken-legs. This workout took me about 25 min.

    I have also done a few extra things on the side like the Goblet squat or as I call it: ‘The Smeagol squat’.
    I also did some dead-lifts, because I’m working on my form with those and finished the workout with weighted bridges, because I’ve noticed from your Bois Blonde workout that those are a killer for my butt, which is always good! Lastly I did the cardio #2, which I dreaded, since I’m not a huge cardio fan. *blush*

    Thanks again! Xx

    • Thank you for your support Stevie 🙂

  • I did it at home yersterday. My warm up was 10 minutes ab workout.

  • I took a 3 hour nap today (I got 5 hours of sleep because I had to drive my stepson to the airport this morning), and I don’t know what it is, but naps totally take the energy RIGHT OUT of me. So this was very hard. I also think I need more practice with full body exercises because they reeeeally tire me out, so that pick up squat was torture for me. I call it “pick the baby up” because that’s what it felt like I was doing. 🙂 Plus, I had to put a towel around it because the duct tape is sliding and it’s all sticky and gross. Anyway, I think I’m going to sprinkle more full-body workouts in my regime, even though they aren’t as satisfying for me. I did that a couple of weeks ago and I feel like it made me stronger. And that way I can do more of your workouts for full body (I have actually done just about ALL your upper and lower body workouts), and I can try some kettlebell too.

    So, sandbag was 35lbs, and then I added a little weight for the others: I used my 10lb medicine ball for the lunges and one 20lb dumbbell for the toe raises. in part 2 I used my 35lb kettlebell for the swings.

    part 1: 28:03
    part 2: tiring

    I was going to do cardio, but this had plenty for me, so I’m calling it a night! 🙂 Hope you’re having fun in the snow!!!

  • Happy Monday Folks!
    Warm up: Basic warm up & 5 mins of going through the routine.
    Part 1: 20 lbs bag for pick up squat.
    Complete 5 rounds in 28:11
    Who would have thought 35 secs can feel so long…part 2 was a riot.
    I took 5 mins break before doing 15 minutes of cardio…..ran up 18 stairs/walk back down =1 reps. I did a total of 43 reps.
    Cool down and stretching 10 minutes.

    Haven’t done proper split routines in a while, and this one seemed simple enough to do, yet still plenty ‘effective’ (as in, ow! my glutes and quads lol). I wanted to avoid really overdoing it though, so just completed four rounds of part one (unfortunately I lost my time for this) and modified the second, as I already felt unwell… so was about 10 min alternating sets of swings and some plank moves for some less intense cardio.

    I used 20lbs for both weighted moves, and must say that I really like that squat variation 😀 I guess because I just love playing with/tossing my bag around, haha.

  • Marie- T. Heigl

    I loved that workout! I actually got really sore muscles from it..ouch

  • so much goodness there.. thanks for a lovely burn Tati!

  • Courtney

    This workout was so much harder than I thought it would be! I thought it would be easy. Thank you, Tatianna, for never making it easy. I love you and curse you at the same time. 🙂

    I had a really difficult time with balance in part 1. I really struggled through the lunges. And part 2 totally kicked my butt. Honestly, I did have to take some breaks. The bag swings were particularly difficult. I couldn’t get the depth that I usually do. I cooled down with some isometric booty lifts and bridges. I have a feeling I’m going to be really sore tomorrow.

    Time to finish up with some cardio. Good workout!

  • Hi Tat, I did this workout in the morning today (but this time fed :)). Took me 26 min. and 21 sec. (with some equipment-troubles in the middle but yeah, still i would never be able to beat your time (I did part I only!:)). It was very very hard, even mentally but I absolutely loved it and I definitely wanted to complete the 5 rounds. My calves and quads were burning! Great one, thank you! XD

  • Karen O

    20 mins 59 seconds. Very difficult, it’s not like me to want to give up!

    So, I beat your time at Part 1 with 2 seconds 😀 So my time for Part 1 was 20,22min. This workout was much more harder than I thought, but I dont think Im still going to have sore legs tomorrow. I think I was bit struggling with my form in sand bag swings bc I was already too tired 😀 Thanks for great workout!

  • Jeanne

    This was a great workout, strength and cardio in one! Just what the doctor ordered for fat burn! I had a 26lbs sandbag, and finished the first part in 19:26. the second part was HARD! But I did it. Finished with a 15 min. cardio and 5 min. stretch. Feeling good after this morning workout and happy that it didn’t take too much time! One of my favorite WO. Thanks a lot for your creativity!

    I revisited this one. I really liked it, and it went A LOT better than last time. Last time I just had no energy, and it was twice as hard. The pick-the-baby-ups were easier than last time, which was the real hard one. I used my 35lb sandbag for the pick up squats (I call them pick-the-baby-ups), a 20lb dumbbell for the lunges (10lb first round, then switched up) and a 20lb dumbbell for the toe raises. In part 2 I used my 35lb kettlebell for the swings, and I did different swings each time: one handed, round the world swings, two handed vertical and two handed horizontal.

    Part 1 time was 25:59 (knocked off 2.5 min from last time, plus I used more weight today)

    Finished with Real Time Abs and Core, since this workout kind of had the cardio built into it. 🙂 All around awesome as always. 🙂

    I’m still a little sore from “Super Buns and Legs of Steel”, so I decided to take on this today, since it looked somewhat lighter.
    I used a 20 lbs. sandbag for the squats and toe lifts. I did the lunges unweighted. 🙂

    Part 1: 19:58
    Part 2: Ow, jump squats. x_x They weren’t *too* unbearable, but in the last few intervals, I had to take teeny three-second breaks to keep going. The bag swings were fun, even if they scorched my bum.

    Bravo! Another amazing workout!

  • Cassidy

    I used 30 lbs on the squats, toe lifts, and bag swings. 20 lbs. on the lunges.

    Part 1: 26:00 on the dot. I’m feeling really unmovtivated, even though this was the first workout I did after my recovery week. :/ I wanted to quit midway through, but pushed through the whole five rounds. I slugged through the entire thing. Bleh.

    It took a lot of pep-talking to get me to even think about Part 2. x_x

    Part 2: No movtivation = decrease in strength, I find. D: I had to take a break after every single round. But taking a few breaths between helped me finish. I always try to say that as long as I finish giving everything I can muster, no matter the weight or breaks I take, then it’s a job well done.

    Thanks again for the workout, Tati! I love this one. 🙂
