Up for a little friendly competition?
This workout is short–only 12 minutes!–and can be a fun way to compete with a friend or spouse. I was sore for about four days after this workout, so don’t be fooled by its duration. You will get a killer workout, especially if you push yourself!
“You Make Me Feel” Workout
Target areas: Legs, Back, Arms, Glutes, Abs
Regimen style: Tabata (10 sec. rest, 50 sec. work), 3 rounds
Gym equipment: Optional. You’d only need it for the “Sandbag combo,” but like I’ve said in previous posts, you can use a full/heavy sports bag or backpack in lieu of something like a barbell. Please use your GymBoss Interval Timer!

As always, feel free to leave me a comment if you’ve tried this workout, or if you have any suggestions for me. Thank you!!
Breakdown of routine:
Set your timer for 12 rounds of 10 sec. rest/50 sec. work.
- Ninja Jump Tuck – Please watch Zuzana’s tutorial at the end of the video for a modified version. I’ve gotten pretty good at this one. You’ll know you have it down when you feel it everywhere.
- “Sandbag” Combo – (a) Deadlift (b) Squat (c) Backward Lunge and Press. Repeat. I used a 30 lb. barbell and Corbet used dumbbells.
- Highknees with Knee Cross Pushups – 6 high knees, 2 total knee cross pushups.
- Plank Jacks – Keep that butt DOWN.
Word of Caution: I thought I had injured my back after this exercise. The muscles in between my shoulder blades felt particularly tight for a while. Please make sure that you go slowly with yourself on these exercises to reduce the chance of injury. I think the knee cross pushups did it for me, as that was a move I’d never done before.
Let me know if you tried this and how you felt afterwards!
