My recommended FE-Life workout for today follows a fairly tame pyramid. You will need a pull-up bar, a kettlebell, a mat, and a plyo box (or platform you can safely jump on).
- Target Muscles: full body
- 1-10 Difficulty Rating: 6.5
- Workout Time: 15 minutes
Ensure that your muscles are warm; I recommend doing the Moji warm-up.
Do eight dead-hang pull-ups, then sixteen kettlebell swings, then twenty-four v-ups, then sixteen box jumps, then eight kettlebell Turkish get-ups—do not rest between sets.
To make the workout easier, follow a “five—ten—fifteen—ten—five” reps pyramid rather than the “eight—sixteen—twenty-four—sixteen—eight” that is prescribed. To make it harder, do two pyramids.
Go for a brisk walk or a casual jog of at least two-miles a few hours before or after the workout.
I post a new workout each day of the week. Clearly, “rest days” are prudent in anyone’s workout schedule. My advice is to select four or five of the workouts I recommend in a week, and do them over four or five days—one workout per day; rest on the other days. I always list the target muscles each routine calls upon. It would be wise to choose workouts that address the entire body over a given week.
