25 Minute Full Body Blast (No Weights!)

by Courtney on March 5, 2012

Man, I’ll tell ya…snacky “breakfasts” just don’t cut it for me. Not being able to sit down for a real meal this morning really had me thrown off, and despite my snacking all throughout the morning, my appetite was through the roof by the time 12:00 rolled around.

Bring on lunch, baby!

To try to add in some extra veggies for the day, I made myself a simple little side salad with lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumbers, topped with a drizzle of sun-dried tomato vinaigrette. I was super annoyed with myself when I realized that I bought the wrong bag of lettuce this week (it’s full of cabbage and carrots, blech) so I’m trying to work through it quickly.

My salad was the perfect accompaniment to the main star of lunch: an egg white, provolone, and turkey sandwich with roasted red pepper hummus on a toasted whole wheat English muffin.

This sandwich was massive, not to mention fantastic. I seasoned my egg whites and turkey with just a little salt, pepper, and dried basil, and it was perfect.

I really do love savory egg sandwiches for lunch. Heck, who am I kidding. I love any kind of egg sandwiches for lunch…or breakfast…or dinner. Winking smile

So I’m headed back out to work again this afternoon,  but I wanted to share a new workout for you guys to try out!

Lately, when I’ve been doing my group sessions at work, I’ve been doing a few different variations on the format you’ll see in today’s workout. These group sessions are only 30 minutes, so I want to make sure that I give the clients the most “bang for the buck” while they’re with me.

Sometimes, depending on the time of day, it can be tough to get on some of the equipment, so here’s a sample of a full body blast workout for ya that can be done anywhere…it’s bodyweight only!

Although I rotate the exercises quite frequently, I almost always try to include some sort of speed & agility work, plyometric movements, strength moves, and core work, to give a well-rounded, sweat-inducing workout session. My clients are usually left nice and sweaty.

Some of the moves are pretty self-explanatory, but here are some links on a few of the other exercises that I thought some of you may be unsure of:

Alright, so who’s ready to get their sweat on now??? Smile

I almost always prefer a sweet breakfast, so egg sandwiches for lunch is one of my favorites! Gotta sneak in those savory eggs somewhere. I still want to try French toast oatmeal though!

Hey Courtney … I just did this workout this morning. Yow-za! It kicked my behind! I had to take a few more breaks (don’t judge haha! ;) ), but other than that, I think I did a pretty good job! Thanks for the great idea! :)

Mmmm, egg sandwiches. Yum!

I’ve been leading some coworkers in 30 minute strength training sessions (used your SuperSet workout today, thanks!) but they are all at the stage where they can barely do one push-up with good form. I know push-ups are great for strength training I’m not sure what to do when you have people who can’t even do one!

Your meal looks amazing! As usual. I love workouts that are weight free 1) because I can never find weights at my gym and 2) because it reminds me of yoga! Thanks for sharing.

Thankyou SO much for posting these circuits. I’m trying to lose a big amount of weight & after a year of only cardio work I did this circuit for the first time last week. It kicked my butt & I was sore for 4 days ;) But I’m not going to let it beat me and will be doing it again tonight.

Just like what you have mentioned, the most important attribute in realty is the location, convenience and value. For these reasons, i would recommend that serious purchasers consider condominium in Bright Hill Drive Condo
