The 20-Minute ‘Add-On’ Workout You’ll Love (Or Love to Hate)

Remember how Jared shared that “progressive” workout he did with Kristen that had all of our burns and calves burning from all the jumping? Well, in it she referenced a workout I shared with her, and I thought, hey, maybe everyone will want to see that, too! And, guys, I hope you do because a) eyeballs keep the FBG lightbulbs on, yes, but, b) this workout is — in the immortal words of Bob Harper — “no joke.”

Like Kristen’s workout, you add on as you go. But, unlike Kristen’s workout, you don’t add on after each time through the circuit. Instead, you add a new move on every five minutes. So, those first five minutes, you’re doing a lot of burpees and wall ball. And then, once you get into the second five minutes, you’re doing burpees, wall ball and kettlebell swings. Between 10 minutes to 15 you’re doing burpees, wall ball, kettlebell swings and mountain climbers. Then, for the final five minutes you’re doing all of that plus jumping rope.

Like whoa.

As you go through it, be sure to count your total number of rounds completed. It’s just 20 minutes long — but by the end you’ll be amazed at how many burpees and wall balls you did. (And surprised at how long the final rounds take — I only got one full round in my last five minutes!)
