Back to Basics 30 Minute Workout

My body has been craving a lot more than running lately.  I’m really enjoying some basic boot camp style workouts that you can do anywhere, anytime.   Here is my Back to Basics 30 Minute Workout!

Happy Thursday everyone!  This workout is one I did in the hotel in Antigua and it really helped after eating way too much vacation food.  And Pina Coladas.  But that is a story for another day.

Back to Basics Workout

I’ve been really enjoying simple workout lately that get your heart rate up without too much fuss.

In case you aren’t familiar with some of the exercises, here is how to do them:

Squat Kickbacks

High Knees

Mountain Climbers


Triceps Dips

Bicycle Crunches

I have been busy editing Antigua pictures in the limelight of extended Christmas.  I am sorting through the pictures of our time on the resort, touring the island and on the water.  I’ll have the first of several fun recaps next Monday.

Maybe this weekend I’ll get back on track.  Maybe.

I’m off to do this workout myself!  See you tomorrow for Fashion Friday.

I’m linking up with Jill Conyers for Fitness Friday tomorrow! Thanks Jill.

Your turn!

What is your favorite basic workout move?

Do you ever mix up your fitness routine?

    Love this… it’s perfect for when my little one is out of school and I get stuck with no childcare! I can’t stand missing workouts so love when I can do something at home.

    I’ve been doing a TON of yoga this month. My body just seems to repel any thoughts of jumping around, so I”m going with it. That said, I love these little do anywhere quickie workouts.

    Thanks for the inspiration. I’m pinning it!

    This looks like it would be a favorite workout of mine when I’m not pregnant. So missing being able to jump and stuff!

    this looks like one of my go-to workouts. these are all the moves I am always doing when putting together a workout on the fly. My go-to move is either a burpee or mountain climbers.

    Call me crazy but my favorite “basic” workout move is a burpee…followed by push ups πŸ™‚

    • JulieWunder January 15, 2015 at 8:52 am - Reply

      Oh the elusive pushup!!! I need to improve these badly!

    Back to basics is fabulous. Awesome job getting a workout in while on vacation! This looks like a great one. I hate mountain climbers, lol. Seriously my least favorite exercise. Favorite basic move is the squat.

    • JulieWunder January 15, 2015 at 8:21 am - Reply

      I try! I definitely didn’t workout as much as I normally do, but a little goes a long way on vacation.

  13. Mountain climbers and squats are 2 of my favorite basics. Hate those burpees

    • JulieWunder January 15, 2015 at 8:20 am - Reply

      Yeah, burpees are rough. I love and hate them at the same time.

    I mixed up my fitness routine a lot this past November, and it was great. But then I got back to training, and now I’m, well, back to training! But I am trying to do things a little different this time around, to keep it fresh.

      It’s always fun to shake things up! I hope your marathon training is back on schedule

    Awesome! This looks like a total sweat-fest! Running is my back to basics move, for sure. I mix up my lifting schedule every 8 weeks or so, but I’m a major creature of habit. I need to add some yoga back into the mix ASAP… I’m excited to see warm, tropical photos! πŸ™‚

    • JulieWunder January 15, 2015 at 8:18 am - Reply

      Yeah, the mountain climbers to the burpees is a little brutal πŸ™‚
      I’m looking to kick up my yoga routine too.

    Sometimes simple straightforward exercises that can be done anywhere is a great way to go. Looking forward to your vacation pics.

      Thanks! I’ll have some of them ready next week!
