Love Your Body Workout
I had a whole different workout planned for today but since my new toy The Pink Lebert got here I had to change everything around – and it was fun! You don’t have to use the equipment I am using, you can substitute it with chairs, I will show you how :).
Today’s workout was at a very good pace, and it was 18 minutes long. I stayed very consistent with my reps. It’s very important that your reps don’t’ drop too low ( from first to last round ), if they do, shorten the max interval.

Set your timer Gymboss Max for 2 rounds of 15 seconds ( rest time ) and 45 seconds ( max effort ), for the total of 18 rounds. There is 5 exercises but 1 of them is done on each side. You will go through the routine 3 times.
I am using an 8 lb ( non bouncy ) medicine ball ( you can find one for about 10 dollars, but you have to really look, cause I’ve seen them some medicine balls for as much as 60-80 which is crazy numbers for a little ball, LOL ).
Never sacrifice your form for speed.
- 1. Two prisoner low jacks & jump up ( this counts as one rep )

Notes: For this exercise you can use a chair, the pic is below :).
- 4. Dips
