This workout video was made for my male viewers and also my ladies who want to workout with their hubby’s (or roommates). My buddy Derek Durkin, Barry’s Bootcamp ladies man, helped me out by putting this routine together that we think is perfect for all your romantic getaways including honeymoons!
This is a HARD freaking workout. Be warned. There are modifications so don’t be afraid to take them. It is supposed to only take 15 painfully long minutes – according to Derek – but I won’t hold it against you if you take breaks in between circuits. Watch the video above and see the workout guide below.
Each circuit is 3 minutes long. You repeat the exercises without resting for the duration of the 3 minutes, then you switch to a new set of exercises. There are 5 circuits.
Warm up on your own. Go for a 5-15 minute jog.
Circuit #1: 10 jump lunges, 10 squats, 9 jump lunges, 9 squats, 8 jump lunges, 8 squats, 7 jump lunges, 7 squats… continue until time is up.
Circuit #2: 10 second forearm plank hold, 5 walking planks (forearm plank to high pushup position), 5 pushups. Repeat for 3 minutes.
Circuit #3: 20 bicycle crunches, 5 sit ups, repeat for 3 minutes.
Circuit #4: 5 High plank cross body twists on right, 10 donkey kicks on right, switch sides, keep repeating until 3 minutes are up.
- I’ll explain since this is the least straight forward one. Start in high plank position and bring right knee to left elbow. Do that 5 times then bend your right knee and do 10 donkey kicks kicking your heel up to the sky. Beginners can lower their left knee to the ground for this move as holding a plank for 3 minutes will be challenging for most of my lady readers. [video demo]
Circuit #5: 20 mountain climbers, 5 burpees with jump at top, repeat until death… just kidding, only three minutes
Make it a Barry’s special by adding some intervals running before and after the body weight couples workout.
Question of the day: Do you enjoy time based workouts or rep based better when working out on your own?
