Countdown body weight workout.

Hello, hello!  How are you today?  Did you watch the eclipse?  I did not plan to as I was working and had not gotten glasses.  But my boss surprised me with some, so I was able to take a break to watch for a bit.  It was pretty cool to see and a nice little break from the usual grind.

I am also happy to report that we are slowly and surely working our way back to healthy over here.  Please keep your fingers crossed that the babies can stay feeling good.

Today I wanted to share a quick, do anywhere workout.  I love countdown workouts.  I feel motivated to work hard when I know the next round will be a little easier and I always feel accomplished when I complete a good countdown style workout.  This workout is body weight only, so all you need is a little space and time to get this workout in.

For this workout, do some light cardio to warm up.  Then move quickly from one exercise to the next.  Start with 20 repetitions of each exercise, and drop two repetitions each round (first round 20 of each exercise, second round 18…).  Work your way down to two of each exercise for your final round.

Short on time, or not feeling up to higher repetitions?  No problem, follow the format but adjust the repetitions to meet your needs.  Maybe start at 20, but end at 10.  Or start at a lower number of repetitions.

Body weight only countdown workout

As with any workout, please listen to your body and make any adjustments you need.  Since this workout is body weight only, it is also super convenient for travel.

Let me know if you give it a try.

Question for today – Do you workout when traveling?  If so, what kind of exercises do you prefer?  I don’t usually workout as much when traveling.  But like to get in quick workouts and do lots of walking.

  1. That’s a great workout. I wish I was to the point of doing anything involving crunches but I still haven’t totally healed from Diastasis Recti yet. But I do love the idea of doing a cardio countdown. I’ll have to adjust to what I can do.

    Glad yall are feeling better!

    1. Definitely skip the crunches as you are healing, you can totally sub in something else for the crunches. Thank you, me too, it’s so hard when the babies don’t feel good.

  2. Dropping from 20 reps to 2 seems killer! I will keep this in my back pocket for future workouts. When I’m traveling I workout if I can but don’t beat myself up if I don’t. When I travel, I tend to walk a lot so I few that as exercise.

    Have a great day 🙂

  3. Looks like a great bodyweight workout – I can’t wait to try it!

    I love exercising when I’m on vacation – it’s fun to check out classes/gyms in the area, and I also love just running/walking around to explore!

    1. Thanks lady! Let me know how you like it. I always want to try classes at new (to me) studios in the area, but have never made it to one on vacation. I am hoping to check out soulcycle the next time I am near one though. Hope you have a great day!

  4. Thanks for the workout! I always love circuit workouts like that 🙂
    Fingers crossed y’all stay healthy!!
    I usually workout when I travel – I stick to bodyweight circuits like the one you shared today and I always bring my running shoes to explore while I run!
    Have a great day!

  5. Heeeelllloooooo death by my own body weight. And I don’t usually workout at a gym but I’ll do lots of walking and yoga 🙂

  6. Bookmarking this when I need a quick, easy and sweaty workout! Love bodyweight workouts – so convenient!

  7. This is a great workout! I like the idea of dropping 2 each round…makes it seem less scary haha!! I also love that this can be done anywhere…often finding time to get to the gym is the most challenging part, so getting something in, even if at home, is great.
