Spurling Super Simple Sixteen Minute Sweat Session


I made that quite the title, huh?

But really, here's a quick and simple workout you can do anywhere, anytime. 

In fact, I just did it this morning in my hotel room. 

I'm down in sunny Orlando, Florida, stacked with meetings all day long and only had about 15-20 minutes this morning to get something in. 

I did it right in the hotel room, so no excuses. 

Whether you're looking for something to do when you're traveling or something to do at home if you have 15 minutes to sneak it in this is the perfect super simple full body workout. 

Here's how it goes:

Squat to Stand w/ OH Reach

Click the link to watch Josh (when he had hair) demonstrate. 

I perform about 8-15 of those to start. 

Why such a big range?

It's a perfect full body warm-up movement from head to toe. 

I just keep doing them, slowly, until I feel like I'm pretty warmed up. 

From there I go into a 3 exercise circuit. 



Side Planks

I like to do a descending ladder. 

Meaning, 10 squats, 10 push-ups, 10 breaths of a side plank on each side. 


8 squats, 8 push-ups, 8 breaths of the side plank. 

All the way down to two. 

You can scale that to what is best for you but the basic principle is to go through all three exercises, rest, and go through 3-6 rounds based on ability. 

I end with some light stretching such as a pigeon stretch

That's it. 

It will take you about 15 minutes but it gives you a nice burn and elevates the heart rate enough to make you feel good. 

Give it a try and let me know what you think. 

I'll be back tomorrow to wrap up the week. 

1% Better.

Dedicated to Your Success,
