Exercise with Andy: Living Room Workout 40

Reading Time: 2 minutes
The next Whole Life Challenge starts in:

Welcome to my living room workout series! Each week, I share a workout from my personal exercise routine — and then do it in real time so you can follow along. These workouts are optional and are simply one of the many ways you can accomplish your daily exercise.

Living Room Workout 40

In last week’s workout (click here to see Living Room Workout 39), we alternated between performing push-ups and squats, switching at the top of each minute.

This week, for the first five one-minute intervals, we’re going to stick with push-ups. Before you start the workout, you’re going to pick a goal number of reps you think you can maintain across those five intervals. You might think it’s likely you can do 5 push-ups, 10, or even 30 on each of those minutes. Just don’t pick a number you don’t feel confident that you can complete five times.

But, I am going to throw in some “fun.” On the fifth minute, we’re actually going to aim to get more than our target number (since it will be the last push-up interval, and all).

Then, starting on minute six, we’re going to take the same approach, but with squats. After five minutes of squats, you’ll have completed your ten-minute minimum of exercise for the day.

Don’t worry if that sounds complicated, all you really have to do is press play and follow me. I’ve got my timer set and I’m all ready to go!
