ALL EVERYTHING BODY WEIGHT WORKOUT

I put this workout together last week and I’m not gonna lie…it’s awesome.  It hits the entire body, with extra attention to the abs (because summer), and only takes 15 minutes.  Do each exercise listed below for 1 minute straight, resting 15 seconds between each exercise.  Do each exercise at the highest intensity you can muster for maximum cardio.

1. Jumping Jacks

2. Dragon Flags (click here for demo). These are brutal, so I did them early to get them out of the way.

3. Sliding leg curls. (click here for demo)

4. Burpees

5. Bicycle Crunches

6. Levitation Squat (click here for demo and go to 3:22 mark)

7. Cross-Body Mountain Climbers (click here for demo)

8. Extended Arm Push-ups (click here for demo)

9. Sliding Jackknifes (click here for demo)

10. Running in place (click here for demo)

11. Dive Bomber Push-ups (click here for demo)

12. Jumping Mule Kicks  (click here for demo)

A few of these exercises are kinda nuts, so if you can’t do one, substitute a similar exercise you can do for a minute straight.  The goal is to get a great, quick workout, not kill yourself.

Carrot Apple Ginger Smoothie & Jeet Kune Do (Bruce Lee) Workout

Carrot Apple Ginger is a popular juice recipe, so I figured I give it a try as a smoothie.  I used Flax milk for the first time as a liquid base, added some raw sunflower seeds for extra texture, cinnamon powder for a hint of sweetness and some kale for you know, health.  I enjoyed it, hope you will too.

Jeet Kune Do Workout

Today’s workout is a classic body weight only routine I found on the @JeetKuneDoAcademy Instagram page.  Jeet Kune Do was the martial art invented and taught originally by Bruce Lee.  If you’ve ever seen a picture of Bruce Lee, you know he was in pretty decent shape.  Now I’m not saying that drinking this smoothie and doing this workout will get you in Bruce Lee shape, but I am not saying it won’t :).  I went for 5 sets the first time I tried this workout.  Go for 10.
