This workout was a lot of fun to create…and by fun, I mean the kicking-your-ass kinda fun 🙂 I’ve received a lot of private messages from so many of you that don’t have powerblocks or dumbbells but still want to do a workout that’s more challenging than just using body weight alone. This entire circuit uses WATER JUGS for weights, and the only other things you’ll need is a chair (or bench) and an exercise mat (or something to lay on while doing the ab portion of the workout). That’s it.
We will be doing two rounds as fast as possible and will record our times for each round. If you can beat my times or keep up with me, this entire workout will be less than twenty minutes. However, as always, I do encourage you to warmup beforehand. And NO STRETCHING until after the workout.
**If you are not familiar with any of these exercises, scroll to bottom of page and click on each one under “The Breakdown” to view a demonstration of proper form and movement.**
Okay..let’s get to it NOW!
Whew! We did it. Now take a quick one minute break and then replay the video and complete one more round 🙂

PS: One of my biggest passions as a health coach and healthy lifestyle mentor is to inform and educate people about the importance of digestive health. No matter what “diet” works best for you, adding in a probiotic supplement can further benefit your health goals.
I’m passionate about this because discovering probiotics and getting my gut healthy was a life-saver for me. I encourage you to do your own research on Gut Health and Probiotics…it could totally be a life-saver for you too! Here are my favorite probiotic supplements right now:
* Trace Minerals
* Super Greens (organic)
