This morning I awoke 30 minutes before Ryan. I used the extra time to browse Pinterest in search of some workout inspiration.
Checking out my fitness board never ceases to motivate me, and when I saw a 1000 rep workout I previously pinned, I was instantly inspired to create a new version of the workout that focused on exercises that appealed to me.
The site the workout was originally pinned from appears to no longer be running, but you may see the original workout here. I’ve seen a bunch of other 100 rep and 1000 rep workouts floating around Pinterest, so I was pumped to take a few minutes to jot down my take on the 1000 rep workout before we headed to the gym. (BodyRock also has a 1000 rep workout that I’m hoping to attempt soon!)
After 15 minutes on the adaptive motion trainer, I hopped off to take a crack at my 1000 rep workout that focused mainly on leg and abdominal exercises:
I freakin’ loved this workout.
It took me slightly more than 35 minutes to complete. The workout challenged me but made the challenge fun. Workouts that quickly jump from one thing to the next are definitely my favorite!
Jack Johnson would be proud of my breakfast this morning.
After snapping that picture, I ended up adding a big spoonful of peanut butter to my plate and dipping pieces of the pancakes in the peanut butter. A fabulous addition to the plate, I must say!
I made our pancakes with Bisquick Heart Smart mix but added a smashed banana to the batter before cooking the pancakes on the griddle and topping them with syrup.
They were good, but I prefer banana bread protein pancakes. Those are the jam. I also have a feeling I’m going to be hungry in no time since pancakes don’t do much to tide me over. Hopefully the peanut butter will help with that a bit!
Today is rather up in the air. We wanted to take Sadie to the dog beach, but it’s more than an hour away and there’s currently a 70 percent chance of rain. What is with the rainy weekends in Florida lately!?
Hope your Saturday is off to a great start!
Question of the Morning
- What was the most fun workout you’ve recently attempted?
Hi Julie!!! Love your blog and had a quick question. I see you are big on circuits in your workouts. I have a 3yr old and twin girls who ar 16months old. I am really trying to get back into shape. I am a big runner but am looking for a new way to mix up my workout routine and tone up…do you find that circuits would be an effective way to step up my workouts? You are in such great shape!!
oh my gosh, yes! they’re a quick way to target a bunch of different muscle groups and raise your heart rate. i LOVE them. congrats on your new baby girls!

Love your page, lots of useful information! Wanted to share that I tried the 1000 Workout yesterday at home…OMG! Crazy! My legs were burning yesterday and I am still feeling it today. I will say I don’t have the really heavy weights at home but I made due with my 10 and 15lb weights and still got a wonderful workout.
Thanks for sharing! You’re awesome! : )
Love your webpage 🙂
I was wondering, i noticed that you use heavy weights for your workouts..how do you not have bulky legs? I use 30 lbs and my legs are, well to me, bulky.
I love that you share your healthy breakfast before going into that extreme workout. I do love pancakes in the morning! That workout was a hard one for me! and you only did it in half an hour! I wish I can have your enthusiasm in doing this workout..Maybe I can invite my friend and we can do it together? That would be fun!

I tried this workout with a friend two days ago after a two mile run. We modified this workout by making it the 500 workout instead of the 1000 and my Quads are still sore. I absolutely loved it.
