Happy Monday! And it is a happy Monday over here since we’re kicking off something I’m proud to share with you all after a lot of hard work (and Lindsay’s hard work is awesome too!).

In honor of today, I decided to create a workout for Move It Monday similar to the sort of workouts you will see in the Holiday Workout Plan. Now, there isn’t one like this but the basic premise is the same – Fast. Minimal equipment. Adjustable to challenge yourself at your fitness level. Fun. Effective. It’s everything you need for a workout you can stick with and finish!

50s and 10s

It looks long, but you only go through the above one time and it should clock you in somewhere around 30 minutes for the entire thing. You will go through a basic layout that will hit your upper body, lower body, and core. Here is the basic layout summed up in a (hopefully) easier to read and follow fashion:

  • 10 reps of either push-ups or inverted rows
  • 50 seconds of a lower body exercise
  • 50 seconds of a plank hold (either done with straight arms or on your elbows – your call!)

Here is a link to some of the exercises:

As you go through the workout, take rest breaks as needed between exercises. During the 50 seconds of exercises, do as many reps as you can and rest when needed as well. If you need modifications for the exercises, I suggest the following tips:

  • Do Double Arm Bent Over Dumbbell Row instead of Inverted Rows.
  • Complete push-ups on your knees.
  • Hold planks on your knees instead of with straight legs.
  • Keep Speed Skaters low impact by stepping side to side instead of jumping.
  • Do not sit as low into the Wall Sit.
  • For the lunge pulses, limit the range of motion and do not drop as low in the lunge.
  • Complete squat pulses instead of squat hops. Or only hop up onto your toes, instead of a full jump.
  • Instead of single leg glute bridges, perform with both feet on the floor.

Look good? Go ahead and give it a try. Then, be sure to head on over to the Holiday Workouts and Nutrition Plan page to snag your copies of the Holiday Workout Plan and nutrition e-book today. Go ahead and treat yourself – to the pleasure of a healthy, staying-on-track holiday season!

How do you do inverted rows with no equipment?

14 tinareale November 12, 2013 at 8:30 am

In the post, I suggest doing bent over double arm dumbbell rows. Hope this helps! :)

15 erin November 12, 2013 at 6:34 am

16 tinareale November 12, 2013 at 8:32 am

Awesome to hear! And yes – a lot of planking, which is why I made sure to suggest its okay to drop to the knees when needed. Glad you liked it!

17 Dominique @ That's What Domi Said November 12, 2013 at 12:48 pm
