Keep Moving – Workout #125

Hey everyone, sorry for the lack of workouts this week, we are in the process of moving to Nashville! Actually, we have moved as of yesterday, and are unpacking. Next week we’ll be getting back in to the blog posts as well, the first one being about simple living and materialistic purging. On to the workout!


Today we will be doing a pyramid workout, try and keep your breathing pulse rate steady throughout the movements!

Movement 1 – Burpees

Movement 2 – Squat to Overhead Press (SOHP)

Base Movement – Bridge

Remember, a pyramid workout means you will do 9 burpees then 1 SOHP, followed by 8 burpees then 2 SOHP, and so on. Eventually you will be doing 1 burpee then 9 SOHP. The base movement is optional, and after each round of burpees/SOHP, you would do 30 seconds of a the bridge movement.

Thanks for being patient, we’ll be back with regular workouts next week, and new blog posts! Have a great weekend, wherever you are.


Week of Workouts #1: July 23-27, 2013


Check it out! The Simple Gym four-week workout plan!

Hey everyone! We are very excited to bring you the Week of Workouts. This has been something we have been thinking about for a while. I think that it offers you a chance to see what the week looks like and to be able to plan out your time even better.

Why this Rocks!

You’ll have a weekly plan that you can download, print, and post wherever your habit trigger is. If you want to look ahead or workout at different times, you can. If you see something you’d like to do differently, you can! If you have 15 minutes, we believe you have time to improve and maintain your physical fitness. So have a great week of working out, you will never regret putting the time in to your health!
