They say it’s your birthday

Number 9 … Number 9

Beatles fans, get the hints? In case you missed it, we’re celebrating our nine-year birthday this week! (You can see all the special posts here including — yes! — AWESOME giveaways.) And, of course, we’re going to celebrate with you in the best way we know how: a killer workout. A workout that’s all based on the number — you guessed it — 9.

Here’s the basic idea: 9 moves. 9 reps. 9 rounds. Whether you’re an exercise newbie or been working out like a beast for years, you can do this workout and take it as fast or as slow as you need to (and, of course, modifying as necessary, too — taking high-impact moves to low-impact, push-ups from the knees, walking instead of jumping back for the burpees, etc.). It’s full-body and bodyweight only, so it’s a great one to do at home, when traveling, at the park — wherever!

Be sure to warm up with five minutes or so of marching or jogging in place and cool down with some stretching and more walking once you’re done.

  1. I love the concept of this workout! Sounds simple but I bet it’s hard. I’d let you know how get on! 3,2,1, lets goooooo!

  2. These routine actually reminds me of the insanity program which definitely helped me. Doing these 9 times is very good and will get definition in your body if done every day. Can imagine it will take about 25 minutes to do without stopping. good luck

  3. I like that these exercises are geared for both people who are new to fitness and to the seasoned vets. May IS National Physical Fitness and Sports Month and I’m definitely going to be adding these to my daily routine!
