“30 Minutes in Hell” Workout

Posted by tpegonline on August 23, 2013

Hey, writing poetry is cool and is a passion of mine, but unfortunately, I can’t write my way to health and wellness.

If you want to be energetic and confident in whatever you do, make sure to exercise.

We are all busy but please carve out 30 minutes three times per week to workout.

I am not saying to do what I do because our goals and physical abilities probably differ.

Just do something. Sitting on the couch stuffing Twinkies in your face will not get make you healthier.

I did my “30 Minutes in Hell” today. Equipment used was one 35 lbs. dumbbell, one LifeLine USA yellow/heavy rubber resistance cable with stirrups and door anchor, and a towel. I’m going to do this routine twice per week using the ‘Escalating Density Principle’ where I will endeavor to do more work in the same 30 minutes each time out.

This took me 27 minutes to complete two sets of the below circuit. I took 20-second breaks when I needed to. That totals 100 reps of lifts/presses, 40 reps of ab exercises and 42 burpees. The burpees are a killer.

Here is what I did:

* One-arm (each arm) dumbbell swings

* 3 burpees

* One-arm (each arm) dumbbell snatches

* 3 burpees

* One-arm (each arm) dumbbell clean & jerks

* 3 burpees

* One-arm (each arm) cable press

* 3 burpees

* One-arm (each arm) tricep kickback

* 3 burpees

* Crunches

* 3 burpees

* Supine leg raise and scissors

* 3 burpees

I’m 43-years-old, I have arthritis and asthma but I refuse to make excuses.

How about you?
