Here’s a quick and fun Weekend Warrior Workout that does well on its own, or in combination with a brisk run. The focus of this workout is high repetition and body weight. Everything in this workout can be done from just about anywhere – the gym, the park, your home, your hotel room, your in-laws, etc.

Think of this workout as an inverted pyramid – the bigger sets are on the top, and the smaller sets are on the bottom. Get the tough stuff out of the way first, and it’s smooth sailing. The thing that’s great about this workout is that it gets easier as you get closer to finishing.

Equipment Needed:

Total Time: 35 minutes

Warm Up: Spend at least 5 to 10 minutes warming up by jogging, walking briskly. If you’re in the mood for more cardio today, save it for after this workout.
