TERMINOLOGY

EMOM

Stands for every minute on the minute. You'll perform an exercise for a set number
of reps or time, every minute on the minute, for a set length of time. For example, for
a 5-minute EMOM of 10 burpees, you would perform 10 burpees at the top of every
minute, resting when completed until the next minute.

You may also see E2MOM or E3MOM in which you'd follow the same concept but
perform the exercises every 2 minutes on the minute or every 3 minutes on the
minute.

AMRAP

Stands for as many reps as possible. An AMRAP workout is performed for set length
of time in which you try to complete as many reps as possible of the specif ied
exercises.

FOR TIME

The goal of a "for time" workout is to complete the workout as quickly as possible
with good form. A for time workout may be a short anaerobic sprint or a longer
aerobic workout where you move at a steady pace to complete the work.

SUPERSET

A superset is two exercises performed back to back for a set number of reps.

HIIT

Stands for high-intensity interval training. HIIT workouts are typically performed
circuit-style in which you push hard for a set amount of time before resting and
repeating. They can vary f rom short bursts of work, say a 10 second max effort, to
longer high-intensity intervals of up to 1-2 minutes.

1. Get Moving Strength and Conditioning Workout

Time Required: 30 minutes


Equipment Required: none

This workout works your core, upper body, lower body and your cardiovascular
system. The goal is to complete the main workout as fast as possible with as little rest
as needed. Work at your own pace but try to push yourself. You can use the warm-
provided or do you own warm-up. You should feel nice and warm and have a light
sweat going by the end of the warm-up.

Workout Details

Repeat for 2 rounds:

• 30 Mountain Climbers
• 40 High Knees
• 50 jumping jacks
• 10 burpees

Repeat for 5 rounds:

• 10 Push Ups
• 20 Sit Ups
• 30 Air Squat
• 40 Walking Lunges
• 30 seconds Plank

2. 20 Minute Upper Body HIIT Workout

Time Required: 20 minutes


Equipment Required: dumbbells, kettlebell, cardio equipment or space to run

This upper body HIIT workout is a lot of fun and actually works the entire body! The
workout is easily scaled to any f itness level and needs little equipment.

The goal is to really push it for those 30 second intervals, hence the high-intensity
interval training! Rather than taking it slowly through the exercises, speed them up
and really power through the whole motion. You'll want to use a weight that you
can f inish the whole workout with but challenging enough that you're barely able to
f inish those 30 seconds, it should really be burning at the end of each interval!

Set up your stations before beginning because you only have 15 seconds to transition

6 Deryn Macey
f rom exercise to exercise. For the f inal 45 second HIIT portion, you can run up a step
mill, push yourself on a rowing machine or sprint on a treadmill. It doesn't really
matter what form of cardio you use as long as you're pushing it

Workout Details

Repeat for 5 Rounds:

• 30 seconds push up to side plank


• 15 seconds rest
• 30 seconds standing arnold press
• 15 seconds rest
• 30 seconds kettlebell high pull
• 15 seconds rest
• 30 seconds alternating dumbbell row
• 15 seconds rest
• 45 seconds step mill, row or run
• 30 seconds rest!

3. Full-Body Conditioning Workout

Time Required: 20-30 minutes


Equipment Required: kettlebell

This workout will not only challenge your heart and get your blood pumping but
you’ll be working your arms, legs, shoulders, core and everything in between. The
goal is to f inish this as fast as possible with good form. It’s a serious leg burner with 4
rounds of air squats and walking lunges. Your glutes and quads will be feeling it big
time!

Workout Details

Complete the following for time:

• 40 push ups
• 40 air squat
• 40 walking lunges
• 40 sit ups
• 40 air squat
• 40 walking lunges

Running on Real Food 7


• 40 kettlebell deadlift to high-pull
• 40 air squat
• 40 walking lunges
• 40 kettlebell swings
• 40 air squats
• 40 walking lunges

SCALING OPTIONS

If you’re a beginner this workout is easily scalable. Just change the rep scheme f rom
40 to 30, 20 or even 10. Pick a number you can f inish but will still be challenging.

If you’re not up to full push-ups, do them f rom your knees. If you’re not ready to do
push-ups f rom your knees, you can do them standing against a wall. If regular push-
ups are too easy, get those feet up on a bench or chair and do decline push-ups!

4. Sprints and Burpee Cardio Workout

Time Required: 30 minutes


Equipment Required: treadmill or 400 m outdoor route

For this workout, you'll be performing a 400 meter, or quarter-mile sprint, followed
by 10 burpees as fast as you can. After that it's right back to running, only this time
it's a 800-meter run. Next, you've got another 10 burpees to do before performing the
whole circuit a second and third time.

Workout Details

Complete 3 Rounds for Time:

• 400 m run
• 10 burpees
• 800 m run
• 10 burpees

How Fast to Run

This workout is designed to be complete as fast as possible so you want to crank up


the intensity and push those runs hard. You should be reaching your max by the end
of each run. It should be uncomfortable, that's where the good stuff is.

8 Deryn Macey
Make it Harder

If you want to make this workout harder, try these intensity boosters:

• Burpee box jumps instead of burpees.


• Burpee pull ups instead of burpees.
• Run on an incline.
• Add 20 walking lunges after each set of burpees.
• Add 25 kettlebell swings in between each round.
• Add 25 barbell or dumbbell thrusters in between each round.

5. Shoulders and Core Strength Circuit Workout

Time Required: 20 minutes


Equipment Required: dumbbells

This workout will build strength and endurance thought the core musculature,
including the lower back, upper back, abs and obliques. Planking is a great way
to build a strong, healthy back and core. Keeping these muscles strong can help
prevent injury and lower back pain and help improve all other areas of your f itness.

For circuit workout #1, you’ll be working through a 6 minute plank! Move straight
f rom the plank to the left side plank to the right without resting. If 30 seconds is too
challenging for you, try starting with 15 seconds each or try a modif ied plank f rom
your knees. Too easy, bump it up to 45 or 60 seconds!

For circuit #2, you’ll be doing more core work combined with two shoulder and leg
exercises. Dumbbell thrusters are a total body workout that not only challenge your
strength but will get your heart pumping too. Reverse lunges with lateral raises work
your legs, shoulders, core and balance. For the high plank knee to elbow, touch each
knee into the elbow on the same side, alternating sides for 14 reps.

Workout Details

Circuit 1

• 30 seconds plank
• 30 seconds left side plank
• 30 seconds right side plank
• 30 seconds rest

Circuit 2

Running on Real Food 9


• 16 dumbbell thrusters
• 14 dumbbell reverse lunge with lateral raise
• 12 high plank knee to elbow
• 10 v-ups

Weight Recommendations

You will need two sets of dumbbells to complete this workout. One set of heavier
dumbbells for the thrusters and a lighter set for the reverse lunge with lateral raise.
Please see the links below if you’re unsure of any of the exercises.

I used 25 lb. dumbbells for the thrusters and 12 lb. dumbbells for the lateral raises but
use whatever weight is challenging for you. The last few reps of each set should be
quite diff icult to complete.

6. Leg and Core Superset Workout

Time Required: 20 minutes


Equipment Required: dumbbells

This workout involves 3 different supersets performed for 4 sets each. You've got
barbell squats and v-ups, deadlifts and weight planks and lunge jumps and Russian
twists. Perform the two exercises in each superset back to back without resting. You
can rest 1 - 2 minutes between each superset.

Workout Details

Complete 4 sets of each superset, resting 1-2 minutes between each.

Superset 1

• 10 barbell back squats 


• 20 v-ups

Superset 2

• 10 deadlifts
• 60 second plank

Superset 3

• 20 jumping lunges
• 20 Russian twists

10 Deryn Macey
What Weights to Use

There are two ways to approach this workout. You could go a bit lighter and
focus on power and speed by slowing down the eccentric movements and really
powering through the concentric movements.

For example, on the squat slowly lower down over a few seconds then power up fast
and strong. Slowing down the eccentric phase of exercises, or negative training, can
be very challenging and it's great way to build strength.

Alternatively, you could go a bit heavier to work on strength. Choose what ever
weights are going to be challenging for you. You're going to have 4 sets of 10 reps
to complete so you want a weight that's going to get tough and uncomfortable but
allow to you to complete all 40 reps with good form.

I used a 25 lb weight plate for the Russian twists, you could use anywhere f rom a 10
to 45 lb plate for this, or use a med ball if you prefer. These should be performed as
quickly as possible, touching down the weight on either side of you with your feet off
the floor.

Subs for An At-Home Leg Workout

If you have a kettlebell or dumbbell at home, you can make a few changes to this
workout to do it at home. If you don't have a barbell at home, use a kettlebell or
dumbbell to perform goblet squats and deadlifts.

If you don't have any equipment at home, try a jump squat instead of barbell squats,
jumping as high as you can. The barbell deadlift is a little harder to replicate with no
weights but if you have an exercise ball you could do hamstring curls and if you have
no equipment, try 10 single-leg straight leg deadlifts per side.

7. TOTAL BODY STRENGTH AND CARDIO WORKOUT

Time Required: 30-40 minutes


Equipment Required: box or bench, kettlebells

This full-body cardiovascular and strength workout basically does it all! You’ll work
every inch of your body plus work your heart to improve aerobic f itness. Because
you’ll quickly be working through these compound, functional movements to
complete the workout for time, this strength training workout turns into quite the
cardio blast. You’ll f inish it sweating, muscles burning and heart pumping but feeling
strong and accomplished! This workout will challenge your legs, arms, shoulders,
explosive power, abs and cardiovascular endurance.

The goal is simple: f inish it as fast as possible. Work through all the reps of each

Running on Real Food 11


exercise before moving onto the next, taking rest as needed but keeping it to a
minimum. Complete the entire workout for your best time.

Workout Details
Complete the following for time:

• 100 air squats


• 100 walking lunges
• 100 kettlebell deadlifts
• 50 push ups
• 50 box jumps
• 50 alternating kettlebell snatches
• 25 kettlebell swings
• 25 burpees
• 25 sit-ups

8. No-Equipment Bodyweight Workout

Time Required: 15-25 minutes


Equipment Required: none

This no-equipment bodyweight strength workout can be done anytime, anywhere.


No equipment needed. This is perfect for traveling or at at-home when you don’t
have time for the gym. You’ll be working through a circuit of descending reps of air
squats, push-ups, sit-ups and lunges with a set of 15 burpees between each round.

This workout is designed to be done as fast as possible (while maintaining good


form). You get 1-minute rest between rounds so really push yourself on the pace.
Don’t hold back, go for it! You How fast can you complete it?

Start with 20 reps each of air squats, sit-ups, push-ups and reverse lunges then do
15 burpees as fast as possible. Rest 60 seconds. Next, do 16 reps of each exercise and
then 15 burpees, rest for 1 minute, then 12 reps of each and 15 burpees and so on, until
the f inal round where you’ll do 4 f inal reps of each before f inishing with one last set
of burpees

Workout Details

• 20 – 16 – 12 – 8 – 4 of air squats, push-ups, reverse lunges, sit-ups


• 15 burpees as fast as possible
• 60 seconds rest

12 Deryn Macey
MAKE IT HARDER

To increase the challenge, try one of these workout boosters:

• Jump squats instead of air squats.


• Jumping lunges instead of reverse lunges.
• Add a 60-second plank between rounds.
• Add weight to the squats and reverse lunges by using a barbell or holding a dumbbell
or kettlebell in the goblet position.
• Add weight to the sit-ups by holding a weight plate or medicine ball.
• Add an extra round by starting with 24 reps each instead of 20.

10. 30 Minute Kettlebell HIIT Workout

determined by the effort you give. It consists of 3 different 3 minute high-intensity
intervals with 2 minutes rest between each, repeated for 2 rounds, or 30 minutes.
You’ll need kettlebells and some space to complete this conditioning workout.

Workout Notes

If you don’t have access to kettlebell weights that will work, you can use a barbell or
dumbbells for the push press and thrusters, or even the deadlift high-pulls, if needed.
If you only have 15 minutes, do this workout once and really push it!

11. Legs and Hills Workout


Time Required: 30 minutes
Equipment Required: treadmill, barbell for deadlifts, box or bench, dumbbells, kettlebell or
heavier deadlift

For this leg builder conditioning workout we’ve got some circuit training featuring
some killer leg-building strength exercises paired with 5 minutes of hill climbs on the
treadmill. Hill running is great for building strength and endurance in the legs and
glutes and can help improve your all-around f itness.

For the hill run, choose a speed that is challenging but doable for the 1 minute at
an 8% incline. It will feel easy at f irst but should get quite diff icult as the incline
increases. The goal is to maintain your speed for the full 5 minutes. I ran at 7 mph. I’d
suggest somewhere between 6 and 8 mph depending on your f itness levels.

14 Deryn Macey
This workout starts off with 5 minutes of hills on the treadmill. From there, it’s right
into 3 rounds of dumbbell step-ups, squats, box jumps and skater jumps followed by
another 5 minute run. Once you’re done the second run, it’s straight into the second
leg builder circuit of deadlifts, lunges, wall sits and glute bridges.

You’ll f inish things off with a f inal 5 minute run and you’re done. Work through
everything at a steady pace, resting as needed. You’re gonna hate me for the wall sits
and 8% hill run…but you’ll thank me when you’re done!

Workout Details

5 Minute Hill Run - 1 minute each at the following inclines 0%, 2%, 4%, 6%, 8%

Complete 3 Rounds of:

• Alternating Dumbbell Step-Up x 20


• Goblet Squat x 20

Complete 3 Rounds of:

• Deadlifts x 10
• Dumbbell Reverse Lunges x 20

—- Repeat the 5 Minute Hill Run —

12. 34 Minute Death by AMRAP Workout


Time Required: 34 minutes
Equipment Required: box or bench, weight plate, kettlebell

This 34 Minute Death by AMRAP Workout features 4 different 7 minute AMRAP’s (as many
reps as possible) workouts, one after the other with 2 minutes rest between each portion.
This workout is all about pushing the pace and seeing how many reps you can complete
in 7 minutes. You’ve got a full 2 minutes rest between each round, so it’s time to put your
head down and go for it.

Get all your equipment set-up and a timer ready. For each 7 minute work period,
you’ll be performing 2 exercises back to back, for as many reps as possible with good
form. Pick a pace and try to stick to it for the full 7 minutes. You shouldn’t need to

Running on Real Food 15


rest at all, just keep moving and see how many reps you can get! The f irst AMRAP
is v-ups and push-ups, the second is box jumps and plate ground-to-overheads, the
third is KB thrusters and deadlift high-pulls and the last one is burpees and overhead
kettlebell swings.

Workout Details

7 Minute AMRAP 1 (0:00-7:00)

• 7 V-Ups
• 7 Push-Ups

— 3 minutes rest (7:00-9:00) —

7 Minute AMRAP 2 (9:00-16:00)

• 7 Box Jumps
• 7 Plate Ground to Overheads

— 3 minutes rest (16:00-18:00) —

7 Minute AMRAP 3 (18:00-25:00)

• 7 KB thrusters
• 7 KB Deadlift High-Pulls

— 3 minutes rest (25:00-27:00) —

7 Minute AMRAP 4 (27:00-34:00)

• 7 Overhead Kettlebell Swings


• 7 Burpees

Weight Suggestions

I’d recommend one heavier kettlebell for the deadlift high-pulls and kettlebell swings
and two lighter ones for the kettlebell thrusters. I used 12 kg kettlebells for the
thrusters (go heavier if you want, I was really sore this day!) and a 24 kg kettlebell for
the deadlift high-pulls and swings.

I would recommend a 25 lb weight plate for the plate ground-to-overheads (men


should use a 45 lb plate).

13. 35 Minute Barbell and Treadmill Workout


Time Required: 34 minutes

16 Deryn Macey
Equipment Required: treadmill or 400 m running route, barbell and weights, box or bench

This 35 minute treadmill and barbell workout consists of 5 rounds of running paired with
upper and lower body barbell exercises. Every seven minutes for 35 minutes, you’ll perform
a 400 m run followed by barbell step ups, push presses, reverse lunges and bent over
rows.

When the clock starts, hop on the treadmill and run 400 m or 0.25 miles. Aim to
f inish this in 2 minutes or less. As soon as you’re done the run, grab your barbell and
perform 20 step-ups (10 per leg) with the barbell on your back. After that, it’s right
into 10 barbell push presses, followed by 20 reverse lunges (10 per leg) again with the
barbell on your back and f inally, 10 bent-over barbell rows.

Once you’ve completed that, rest until the clock hits 7:00 and then you’re back on
the treadmill for round 2. Once you’re f inished the second set of barbell bent-over
rows, rest until the clock hits 14:00 and then start round 3. Repeat for 5 total rounds,
or 35 minutes.

You’re not going to have much time on this one (please don’t hate me!) so you’ll have
to run pretty quick then move through the strength exercises with minimal rest. You
should get at least 30 seconds rest per round.

Workout Details

Every 7 minutes for 35 minutes complete:

• 400 m (0.25 mile) run


• 20 barbell step-ups (10 per leg)
• 20 barbell push press
• 20 barbell reverse lunges (10 per leg
• 10 bent-over rows

SCALING THIS WORKOUT

If you can’t f inish each round in under 7 minutes or are getting less than 15-20
seconds rest, use a lighter weight so you can f inish in 6:30 or less. You could even just
use the barbell for the presses and rows and do bodyweight step-ups and lunges.
Choose something that’s going to be a challenging but doable

f itness and endurance. It might take you longer than 30 minutes, it just depends how
fast you move, so get after it!

Start with the 400 m run then work through the rest of the workout at a steady pace
with good form. It doesn’t have to be a full-out sprint as it is quite long but the goal is
to keep moving without resting. You’ll catch your breath on the kettlebell swings and
sit-ups so try to push the pace on the rowing and running.

18. 20 Minute WOD


Time Required: 20 minutes
Equipment Required: kettlebell, rowing machine, box or bench

This super fun 20 minute CrossFit WOD is a sweaty one. You’ll be putting in 20 minutes of
hard work broken into 5 minute segments with 2 minutes rest in between each segment,
so you’ll need 26 minutes total to complete this. This workout will challenge your entire
body and improve your cardiovascular fitness.

When the clock starts, perform 50 goblet squats then do as many (AMRAP = as many reps
as possible) burpees as possible until the clock reaches 5 minutes. Rest for 2 minutes.
At 7:00, do 50 sit-ups, then as many kettlebell swings as possible until 12:00. Rest for 2
minutes. Follow the pattern for the last two 5 minute portions.

If you’re not comfortable with the KB clean and jerks, I’d recommend doing 25 on each
side of a single-arm kettlebell push press or a single-arm kettlebell thruster.

19. 3 Part AMRAP Workout


Time Required: 20 minutes
Equipment Required: kettlebell, rowing machine, box or bench

This AMRAP Workout consists of 3 different 7 minute portions with 3 minutes of


rest between each. The goal of the 7 minute work periods is to complete as many
reps as possible (AMRAP) following a 2, 4, 6, 8, 10…etc. rep scheme. This workout
will challenge the entire body plus get your heart rate up to help build your aerobic
f itness too.

For the f irst 7 minute AMRAP you’ll be working on box jumps and kettlebell swings.
Start with 2 box jumps, followed by 2 kettlebell swings, then 4 box jumps followed
by 4 kettlebell swings, keep increasing the reps by 2 and see how far you can get
in 7 minutes. Once you’ve completed that, rest for 3 minute before performing the
second 7 minute AMRAP, then rest another 3 minutes before performing the last 7
min AMRAP.

The goal is to keep moving through the whole 7 minutes so you want to choose a
weight that will be tough but still allow you keep moving. Those 7 minutes should
not be comfortable! A good goal is to get into the round of 16.

20. 40 Minute Full-Body EMOM Workout

Time Required: 40 minutes


Equipment Required: kettlebell, dumbbells, box or bench

This 40 minute full-body EMOM consists of 8 stations performed as a circuit for 5


rounds. For equipment, you’ll need a box or bench, two dumbbells or a barbell, a
kettlebell and a bit of space. This workout can easily be scaled to suit your f itness
level or if you’re short on time. Get ready to sweat and get an amazing full-body
workout, especially targeting the legs, in just 40 minutes.

Workout Details

3. 24 kettlebell swings

4. 12 dumbbell thrusters

5. 12 box jumps

6. 24 reverse kettlebell goblet lunges

7. 60 seconds plank

8. REST

SCALE THIS WORKOUT

This workout is easily scaled to suit your f itness level. There are a few different ways

Running on Real Food 23


you can scale it:

• Adjust the reps. If this is too easy for you, increase the reps by 3-6 per round. Too
difficult? Decrease the reps as needed. You should be getting anywhere from 10-30
seconds rest per round.
• Reduce the rounds. If you don’t have time for the full 5 rounds or just aren’t ready for
it, no problem. Scale it down to 3 or 4 rounds, or 24 or 32 minutes respectively. Really
short on time? 2 rounds would be a great start and you’d be done in 16 minutes!
• Adjust the weight. If you’re able to complete the number of reps but aren’t quite
there strength-wise yet, simply use lighter weights. If you’re feeling good and want to
push it, choose a weight that’s going to be very challenging but will still allow you to
complete all the rounds and reps.

21. Strength and Conditioning EMOM Workout

22. HIIT Strength and Conditioning Workout

Time Required: 27 minutes

Equipment Required: dumbbells, box or bench, kettlebell and either a barbell, TRX or
smith machine

This fun HIIT Strength and Conditioning Workout consists of 3 stations you’ll be
working through for 27 minutes, alternating between 2 minutes of work and 1 minute
of rest. Each 3 minute station will have 2 strength exercises to get though before
you’ll perform an AMRAP, or as many reps as possible of burpees, box jumps and
kettlebell swings.

This workout is made up of 3 stations you’ll move through as a circuit for 27 minutes,
working for 2 minutes and resting for 1 minute. The strength work before the
AMRAPs took me about 1 minute to complete, which means you should have about
one minute to perform as many reps you can of the burpees, kettlebell swings and
box jumps. The goal is to get AS MANY REPS AS POSSIBLE, so push yourself! You get 1
minute rest after each 2 minutes of work.

When the clock starts, perform 20 jumps squats and 10 push-ups then do as many
burpees as possible until the clock hits 2:00. Rest for 1 minute.

At 3:00, perform 20 reverse goblet lunges and 10 supine bodyweight rows then do as
many kettlebell swings as possible until the clock hits 5:00. Rest for 1 minute.

At 6:00, perform 20 step ups (10 per leg) and 10 dumbbell push presses then do as
many box jumps as possible until the until the clock hits 8:00. Rest for 1 minute.

23. Full-Body 30 Minute EMOM Workout
Time Required: 30 minutes
Equipment Required: kettlebell, dumbbells, barbell, box or bench

This full-body 30 minute EMOM workout is going to challenge your conditioning,


strength and endurance for a complete workout in just 30 minutes.

The 30 minute EMOM is made up of six 5 minute minute EMOMs back to back, with
6 different exercises in total. We’ve got burpees, box jumps, deadlifts, kettlebell
swings, sit-ups and dumbbell thrusters. All the movements are desinged to be done
"unbroken" or without splitting up the reps.

Workout Details

1. 25 kettlebells swings

2. 15 box jumps

3. 15 deadlifts

4. 20 sit-ups

5. 12 burpees

6. 12 dumbbell thrusters

Weight Suggestions

• I used a 20 kg kettlebell for the swings. Scale the weight on this before you scale the
reps ie. use a 12 or 16 kg kettlebell. Too easy?? Bump it up to 24 kg!
• I used a 20 inch box. This is doable but you’ll have to keep the pace up. Scale the reps
down to 12 or 10 or if you’re falling behind. If 15 reps is too easy for you, try 20!
• I used 125 lbs. for this. The last few reps burn but you should get lots of rest on this one,
so it’s not too bad. Scale the weight down before you scale the reps. If 125 is too easy,
go ahead and bump that weight up to something you can do for 15 unbroken reps x 5
rounds.
• I used 20's for the thrusters, which was very doable. Scale the weight before you scale
the reps on this one. If it’s too easy, I’d recommend 35 lb. dumbbells for the ladies, and
50’s for the guys. If you find 20 a bit too challenging, scale down to 15 lbs. If you can’t
make 12 per minute, scale down to 10. Keep pushing on this one and finish strong, it’s
your last movement!

24. Run Intervals and Strength Workout
Time Required: 25-40 minutes
Equipment Required: kettlebell, weight plate

This workout is tough but it's highly effective at improving overall f itness. You'll be
working all your muscles, pushing your cardiovascular f itness and really putting your
endurance to the test.

It's great for building endurance, strength and overall conditioning. You can go
as slowly or as fast as suits your needs but the goal is to keep the rest taken to
a minimum in order to complete it as fast as possible. Choose a weight that is
challenging but allows you to maintain proper form and keep up the pace. I used
a 20 kg kettlebell and a 25 lb. weight plate and that worked well for me, adjust
accordingly to suit your abilities.

This took me just under 30 minutes to complete and I was pushing it pretty hard,
for my f itness level anyways. If you're a beginner, simply scale it back to 1 round and
adjust the weights as needed. Advanced exercisers, go for the full 2 rounds, give it
your all and see how fast you can f inish!

Workout Details

Repeat for 2 rounds:

• 800 m run
• 10 burpees
• 20 kettlebell swings
• 10 kettlebell goblet squats
• 20 overhead plate walking lunges
• 800 m run
• 10 overhead plate walking lunges
• 20 kettlebell goblet squats
• 10 kettlebell swings
• 20 burpees

Excercise Substitutions

If you don't have a kettlebell or weight plate you can use dumbbells for all of the
exercises listed. If you're limited for space, you can substitute a reverse lunge for the
walking lunges. You could also use a barbell on your back or in the f ront rack position

Running on Real Food 27


for the lunges. If you're not ready to add weight to the lunges, bodyweight walking
lunges are a good place to start. If burpees are too challenging, you can try one of
the modif ied burpee options as demonstrated here.

25. 30 Minute EMOM Conditioning Workout


Time Required: 30 minutes
Equipment Required: dumbbells

There are 6 exercises in this EMOM and you’ll be completing 5 rounds in total. I tried

minutes:

1. 24 Dumbbell Reverse Lunges

2. 12 Push Ups

3. 15 Dumbbell Thrusters

6. 10 V-Ups

26. Running and Strength Conditioning Workout

This CrossFit-Style Conditioning Workout is a killer WOD you can get done when
you have limited time. It’s designed to be completed “for time,” meaning f inish it as
quickly as possible.

It’s pretty straight-forward. Start with a 400m sprint, then burn through the exercises
and f inish with another 400m sprint. This is a short workout so the goal is to
really push it and get through it with minimal rest!! Finish as fast as you can while
maintaining proper form.

• Add 2 more 400 m sprints, one after the kettlebell swings and 1 after the box jumps

Scale the Workout

This workout is easily scalable to suit your f itness levels. Do the push ups f rom your
knees, do box step ups instead of box jumps, do bodyweight lunges instead of plate
overhead walking lunges, walk the 400 m…choose your adventure! For the pull ups
you can use a band, an assisted pull up machine or modify with a bodyweight row or
even bent-over barbell rows.

you to f inish in around that time. Everything can be scaled as needed to suit your
f itness level. The goal is to f inish as fast as possible, taking little to no rest between
the movements in each superset. Get your equipment set up, start your time and it's
go time!

The goblets squats and burpees are pretty straightforward, as are the goblet lunges
and kettlebell swings. For the lunges you can either do a forward or reverse lunge
or do walking lunges. Do the goblet step-ups on a box or bench, alternating legs for
20 reps. This is paired with a basic 30 second plank for some added core work. The
last superset involves push ups and a deadlift high pull. The deadlift high pull can
be performed with a kettlebell or a barbell. Perform 5 sets of each superset. Rest 60
seconds between each superset.

• 60 seconds wall sit
• 20 plank shuffle (10 each direction)

42. Push, Pull, Legs, Core Superset Workout

Time Required: 20-14 Minutes


Equipment Required: barbell and weight plates

For superset 1, you’ll perform 6 deadlifts the move right into a 40-second plank.
Alternating between the two for 6 sets. The reps for the deadlifts are quite low, so
you’ll want to choose a weight that’s on the heavier side. For me, I would probably
work with 185 lbs. For you, that might be somewhere between 95 lbs and 225 lbs
depending on how strong you are and how you’re feeling.

Superset 2 consists of back squats and side planks. You’ll be doing 10 backs squats
with a barbell and a 20-second side plank on each side. The goal is to move f rom
movement to movement with no rest. I would recommend a weight between 85 and
135 lbs for the squats.

For the last superset, you have the upper body push and pull. Move between the
push-ups and bodyweight rows with no rest, completing the 6 rounds as quickly as
you can.

3 killer supersets, upper body push and pull, squats, deadlifts and planks, this
workout has it all! Complete each superset as quickly as you can and then rest as
needed between each superset. Choose weights that will allow you to move at a
steady pace and complete the reps without breaking them up.

43. Total Body Countdown Workout

Time Required: 20-40 minutes


Equipment Required: dumbbells and/or barbell with weight plates

To do this workout, start with 10 reps of each exercise before starting the circuit
again and completing 9 reps, then 8, then 7 and so on, all the way down to 1 rep each.
You’ll want to pick fairly challenging weights because the number of reps will be
decreasing with each set.

I’d recommend setting out stations with your different weights so you can quickly
move between exercises. I used one set of dumbbells for the renegade row, the same
set for the dumbbell push press and the bent-over rows, then I had one ready for the
goblet squat, and lastly one pair for the dumbbell chest press.

Workout Details

Start with 10 reps of each, then 9, 8, 8 all the way down to 1:

• Renegade Row
• Goblet Squat

45. 5 Rounds Full-Body Strength Workout


Time Required: 20-30 minutes
Equipment Required: barbell and weight plates, dumbbells

There’s nothing complicated about this workout. It’s not an EMOM or an AMRAP and
there’s no need for a timer. Don’t rush but move through it at a steady pace, resting
shortly as needed but keeping it to a minimum.

The back squats and bench press should be fairly heavy. Choose a weight that’s a
little scary for you but you’ll be able to get through 5 sets of 10 with. The last couple
reps should be very diff icult.

The thruster weight can be something more manageable that you can move quickly
and the step-up weight can be something tough but focus on keeping perfect form
and really driving through the heel and glute. For the step-ups f inish all 10 reps on
one leg before switching to the other.

Workout Details

Complete 5 rounds:

• Barbell Back Squat x 10

• 60-second Plank
• Dumbbell Bench Press (or floor press) x 10
• Dumbbell Thruster x 15
• Dumbbell Step-Up x 10 per leg
• Toe Touches x 30

46. 30 Minute Running and AMRAP WOrkout


Time Required: 30 minutes

For this conditioning workout, you’ll be alternating between 5 minutes on the


treadmill and a 5 minute AMRAP of burpees, push-ups, reverse lunges, kettlebell
swings and air squats. An AMRAP, or as many reps as possible, means you’ll perform
that circuit straight for 5 minutes, completing as many good quality reps as you can.

Workout Details

Alternate between the 5 minutes of running and 5 minute AMRAP for 3 rounds, or 30
minutes total.

5 minute Treadmill Run - Start at a moderate pace and increase speed by 0.5 mph
every minute for 5 minutes. For example, start at 6.0 mph, then 6.5, then 7 and so
on, working your way up to 8.0 mph for the last minute. Choose a speed that will be
uncomfortable but doable for 3 rounds.

5 minute AMRAP - Complete as many reps as possible in 5 minutes of the circuit


below.

• 4 burpees
• 6 push ups
• 8 reverse lunges
• 10 kettlebell swings

49. 30 Minute Treadmill Hill Climb Workout

This workout is not for the faint of heart. It is tough a one but it's also effective. If you
only have 30 minutes to workout, this is a great choice. Not only will you get a great
cardiovascular workout but the hills will build strength and power in your legs and
glutes.

This workout will keep you running straight through for 30 minutes, this gets tough
because you're going to want to rest when those hills start getting bigger and
bigger. Stick with it though and after 1 minute at 0% incline you should be recovered
enough to hit that next hill.

Part 1

• 0-5 min – 0% at 8 mph


• 5-6 min – 10% at 7 mph
• 6-7 min – 0% at 7 mph
• 7-8 min – 8% at 7 mph
• 8-9 min – 0% at 7 mph
• 9-10 – 6% at 7 mph

Part 2

• 10-15 min – 0% at 8 mph


• 15-16 min – 11% at 6.5 mph
• 16-17 min – 0% at 7 mph
• 17-18 min – 9% at 6.5 mph

42 Deryn Macey
• 18-19 min – 0% at 7 mph
• 19-20 – 7% at 6.5 mph

Part 3

• 20-25 min – 0% at 8 mph


• 25-26 min – 12% at 6 mph
• 26-27 min – 0% at 7 mph
• 27-28 min – 10% at 6 mph
• 28-29 min – 0% at 7 mph
• 29-30 – 8% at 6 mph

Choose Your Speed

Please adjust the speed as needed. These speeds worked well for me, it
was challenging but doable. If you use the speeds I did it gets very challenging in the
second and third sets. Choose whatever is going to be a challenge for you. You'll be
running at your base speed for 3 sets of 5 minutes then adjusting the speed for the
hills.

Scale as Needed

If you're a newer runner, I would recommend using a base speed of somewhere


between 5.0 and 6.0 mph and adjusting the speed throughout accordingly. If you're
experienced and have a high level of f itness, use a base speed of 8.0 mph like I did.
You could even power walk if needed.

If you'd rather keep the speed up, you can also adjust the inclines and start off with
6 or 8% instead of 10, then just adjust everything down by 2 or 4% respectively as you
work your way through the intervals. Remember, you can do anything for 30 minutes
so don't be af raid to go for it!

• 26-27 min - 0%
• 27-28 min - 6%
• 28-29 min - 4%
• 29-30 min - 2%

Choose a speed you can maintain throughout the entire run. The 6-12% inclines
should be very challenging. Not ready to run? Try it at a brisk walking pace.

I ran at 6.5 mph most of the way and f inished the last 2 minutes at 8 mph. After
the f irst hill, I thought the 6.5 mph was going to be to easy, but I'm glad I stayed at
that pace because it got a lot harder. The transition f rom the second to third hill is a
tough one, there isn't much time to recover so just push through and keep going!

51. 20 Minute Rolling Hills Workout

Time Required: 20 minutes

Equipment Required: Treadmill

This workout is deceptively difficult. You will be running on the treadmill on an incline
for the whole 20 minutes and it will progressively increase up to 7%. This is a short run,
only 20 minutes, so choose a speed that is going to challenge you and that you can
maintain throughout, or you an start a bit faster and slow down a bit as needed in order to
complete all the hills. You can do anything for 20 minutes, so turn up the music and get to
it!

WORKOUT DETAILS

• 0-2 min – 2%
• 2-4 min – 4%
• 4-6 min – 3%
• 6-8 min – 5%
• 8-10 min – 4%
• 10-12 min – 6%
• 12-14 min – 5%
• 14-16 min – 7%
• 16-18 min – 6%
• 18-20 min – 8%

52. HIIT Treadmill Hill Workout


Time Required: 25-30 minutes
Equipment Required: treadmill

This workout is all about work, rest and repeat and by work, I mean work. The
intervals are going to be tough but push through to build strength, power, speed and
overall f intess.

Workout Details

Repeat for 3 total rounds.

Interval 1

• 10% incline for 1:30 min

Running on Real Food 45


• Rest 30-45 seconds

Interval 2

• 11% incline for 1:15 min


• Rest 30-45 seconds

Interval 3

• 12% incline for 1:00 min


• Rest 30-45 seconds

Interval 4

• 13% incline for :45 sec


• Rest 30-45 seconds

Interval 5

• 14% incline for :30 sec


• Rest 30-45 seconds

Interval 6

• 15% incline for :15 sec


• Rest 30-45 seconds

Workout Notes

• Leave the treadmill running on an incline for the whole workout and just hopped onto
the side panels to rest, or hopped right off and walked around a little until I was ready
for the next repeat.
• Rest 30 – 45 seconds between each hill interval.
• Choose a speed you can maintain for the entire interval. This will most likely have to
reduce your speed as each interval gets steeper.
• To scale this workout, start at a lower incline and increase by 1% each round. For
example, start at 3% and work your way up to 8, or start at 5% and work your way up to
10. Find something that is achievable but will still be tough.
• If 3 rounds is too much, start with 1 round and work your way up to 3.
