January 1st, 2018, hung over from New Year’s Eve, I started doing the 7 Minute Workout.
For those unfamiliar, the 7 Minute Workout is a series of 13 exercises that are done for 30 seconds each with a 10 second break in between.
I’m still unsure where the name “7 Minute Workout” came from as the whole circuit totals 8.5 minutes.
Fast forward 6+ months later, I am still doing the workout every. single. day.
I’ve also been tracking how many repetitions / how much time I spent doing the exercises and wanted to share what 6 months of the 7 Minute Workout looks like.
For anybody that tries to call out my numbers, keep in mind that there were a few days where I ran the full circuit twice instead of just once ;)
By the numbers, things stack up pretty nicely:
- 6,840 Jumping Jacks
- 1 hour 32 minutes of Wall Sits
- 2,904 Push Ups
- 3,621 Crunches
- 3,611 Step Ups to Chair
- 3,092 Squats
- 3,955 Dips
- 1 hour 32 minutes of Planks
- 11,240 High Steps
- 2,476 Lunges
- 1,667 Push Ups with Rotation
- 1 hour 32 minutes of Right Side Planks
- 1 hour 32 minutes of Left Side Planks
All of this was accomplished in less than 10 minutes [most] days and has helped me to easily obliterate my [goal of doing 1,000 reps of body weight exercises per month][goal]!
I’m not spending a dime on a gym membership and am looking and feeling great. Big photo reveal will be after a full 12 months, but I can tell ya that the results have been enough to get my wife to give it a go for the month of July.
Or maybe it’s the fact that I won’t stop asking her to check out my biceps ;)
