Exercise with Andy: Living Room Workout 5

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

Each week, I’ll 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 ten daily minutes of exercise.

Living Room Workout 5

The two movements in today’s workout are simple, but the scheme is a bit different. For each exercise, we’re going to work our way through eight intervals of twenty seconds of work and ten seconds of rest. If you’re familiar with Tabata intervals, this structure will be familiar to you.

You’re going to get as many reps done as you can in each of the twenty-second intervals. This entire workout only takes nine minutes, and may seem like it should be easy, but trust me — this one is going to get hard.

  1. 8 intervals of :20 work, :10 rest — leg lift with hip extension
  2. 1-minute rest
  3. 8 intervals of :20 work, :10 rest — arch ups

Remember, part of what we’re learning and practicing in the Whole Life Challenge is personal responsibility. So, adjust these exercises to your ability and listen to your body and back off if you need to.
