I was a sweaty mess by the time I finished this workout today.
I used a 50-pound bar for the squats, a 40-pound bar for the lunges and a 25-pound kettlebell for the kettlebell swings, but If you’re looking for an At Home Workout, you could easily use your bodyweight for the squats and lunges and substitute something like high knees for the kettlebell swings. That would make this workout a living room friendly circuit that requires no equipment!
I got the idea for the decreasing reps in this workout from a workout that I pinned earlier this week on Pinterest from Annica Nicole. She’s way more hardcore than I am and her workout decreased reps from 10 all the way to one. Annica’s workout also involved more core exercises, so I changed it up to incorporate more cardio and total-body exercises, but decreased the overall reps. Annica is legit!
Breakfast this morning hit the spot.
Hummus scrambled eggs with broccoli and yellow squash + Sweet wheat Alternative bagel + Gouda cheese
This breakfast is sitting like a rock in my stomach. I ate it as I clicked through my inbox this morning and think I kept eating past my normal point of fullness. Voluminous veggies are filling! I guess that’s why you’re not supposed to eat with any distractions, right?
When it comes to eating with distractions, I eat breakfast, lunch and my morning and afternoon snacks in front of the computer nearly every day. It’s only at dinnertime that I will sit at the table and eat distraction-free.
Question of the Morning
- Do you eat in front of the computer or television or are you a distraction-free eater?

I’m totally a distraction eater.. I never used to be until college, but now I’m CONSTANTLY multitasking unless I’m at dinner with friends or family.
I can’t wait to try this workout with my girls… we love doing new HIIT variations! Thanks for sharing!

Almost everyday I eat breakfast in front of the computer. I also, check Facebook, emails, twitter etc at that time and then I get ready for work or the day. It’s usually dinner time that I’m not on some sort of electronic device!
How do you get the “pin it” button under your pics?
This is AWESOME. I wanted to get a quick workout in today before going out to dinner tonight for a friend’s birthday and now I’ll do this at home so I won’t have to worry about making the haul to the gym! 🙂
I loved this workout…thank you! It got me motivated this morning!

I always eat with at least one distraction. It reminds me to slow down and fully chew each bite. It has really helped with my digestion. And I pay attention to how hungry I am. I dish everything out, even if I’m having chips. I just eat what I’ve been served and don’t feel like I need to just keep eating because the bag is in front of me.
Omg I totally did your circuit this morning after my run!! It was amazing to be outside and strength train :). Also, I’ve been wanting to ask for awhile, what is your skincare routine? You have amazing skin!!

I may or may not be eating while reading this post…
I love countdown workouts. I’m going to have to checkout her workouts now. I’ve posted a few 10 – 1 rep workouts before on my blog. They seem to go by way faster and don’t feel so overwhelming at the start of the workout because the most you do at one time in 10. They are so fun in an odd way. I definitely eat while distracted. I’m either watching TV or on my computer, then I get mad because my keyboard gets crumbs on it sometimes. Not good for the computer.
I try to be distraction free but it’s sooo hard. I’ve been more conscious of it lately though.
Breakfast in front of the TV, lunch is usually at work (so, at the conference room table with my coworkers), and dinner at the table with my family.
For the planks, is holding it for 30 seconds considered one rep? and you do that ten time before moving on to the next exercise? Or do you just do one plank and then move on?
Oh wow, I did 10 planks, then 9, then 8 etc! No wonder it took me more than 30 minutes to finish this workout!!

I have been trying to eat mindfully and generally (now) always eat breakfast computer free. I try for lunch and snacks but it very rarely happens. Dinner is usually at the table nowadays but sometimes in front of the tv.
I love to eat in front of the TV! Otherwise I’m bored!
Thanks for the workout! I tried it out this morning and was a fan. This may be a stupid question but am I supposed to do ten, nine, eight sets of 30 second planks or just 30 seconds each round? I wasn’t sure
just 30 sec. per round!
I try not to eat in front of the TV or computer. I used to all the time but lately I’ve been doing my best to avoid it so that I can not only enjoy my food more but realize when I’m full & eat less!

Wow! I just did the workout – with AC and a fan – and got just a sweaty as I did yesterday running 6 miles outside. Q: are you supposed to do 10, 9, 8, etc reps of the mountain climbers & jumping jacks? I did 30 seconds for each round b/c I’m not used to counting reps for these.
you can do whatever is best for you! i did 10, 9, 8… reps of those exercises.
This workout looks like it would give me a good ass kicking.. PERFECT!
