10-Minute and Bodyweight Workouts for this Week

I haven’t been doing a very good job lately or sharing my personal workouts with you, so I thought I’d give you a little insight into what I’ve been doing this week.

It’s been a hectic week (again), so I’m sticking with my 10-minute workouts and doing add-on workouts whenever I have a chance.

The difference with some of the workouts the past few weeks is that when I do my workouts at the studio I focus a lot on my back/upper back and legs, then I do bodyweight workouts at home.

It’s been working out pretty well, plus it’s fun to test and challenge myself with all the different push-up variations that I do with my bodyweight workouts.

Anyway, enough rambling and let’s get to the good stuff.

Monday – Bodyweight Workout, approximately 20 minutes total:

10-Minute Circuit of:
1A)  “T” Push-up – 15 reps
1B)  Bodyweight Squat – 25 reps
1C)  Pike Push-up – 12 reps

I did as many circuits as I could in 10 minutes trying to rest the least amount possible.

Then I did another 10 minute circuit that was a little more metabolic in nature, but still worked my arms nicely.

1A)  Close Grip Push-up – 15 reps
1B)  Burpees – 8 reps
1C)  Jack Knife – 15 reps
1D)  Decline Close Grip Push-up – 12 reps
1E) Mountain Climber on Carpet Sliders – 30 seconds

By the way, those carpet sliders are my new favorite workout toy.  I bought them to use in my boot camps, but liked them so much I kept a pair at home.  I do different mountain climber variations, lunges, plank extensions, leg curls, etc. and they are killer.  I highly recommend you pick up a pair.

Tuesday’s 10-Minute Circuit:

1A)  Inverted Row – 10 reps
1B)  Forward Lunge – 6 reps
1C)  Reverse Lunge – 6 reps
1D)  Rear Flies – 10 reps

Did as many circuits as I could in 10 minutes without resting and my legs were feeling it…not to mention my upper back.

I had some more time, so I went on to a little arm’s workout and did the following for 5 minutes:

1A)  Hammer Curl – 15 reps
1B)  Rear Flies – 15 reps
1C)  DB Curl – 15 reps

That felt good on the arms.

Wednesday did another 10-minute bodyweight circuit from home, just like Monday.

1A)  Decline Spiderman Push-up – 10 reps
1B)  1 ½ Squat – 15 reps (makes the legs burn!)
1C)  Push-up/Jack Knife combo – 12 each

Then I did another 10-minute circuit…

1A)  Side Plank Extension – 12 per side
1B)  Spiderman Mt. Climbers on Carpet Sliders – 30 seconds
1C)  Close Grip Push-ups – 12 reps
1D)  Wide Grip Push-ups – 12 reps

I have no idea how many push-ups I did, but it was A LOT.  I can’t say this enough, but you gotta do push-ups…gotta, gotta, gotta.

How was that for proper grammar?

I have no idea why I added this, I just thought it was a good picture...

I don’t know what the rest of my week will look like since I’m heading to Austin tomorrow and don’t have ANY time to workout before I leave town. My only hope is that there’s a gym in the hotel and that it’s open 24 hours.

Then I’ll do a bodyweight workout in my hotel room and just might film that for you, although I’d have to put on shorts and a tank top, rather than just rolling out of bed which is what I usually do with my hotel room workouts…so maybe I’ll be too lazy to set up the camera.

Watch and see!

Talk to ya soon!
