The Wonder Woman Workout!

Pin It
This workout is for all wonder women- mothers, sisters, daughters, grandmothers, cousins, and friends- who consistently make it look easy to balance a job, a home, a family, a social life, and finding time to rock out some kick ass fitness in the 25th hour of the day.  
This is my regular house cleaning get-up. 
I'd like to dedicate this workout to Kelly Olexa (Happy Birthday, beauty!), the founder of Fitfluential, who is a true Wonder Woman herself. She works tirelessly at her job and makes sure her "kittens" are always taken care of; while managing to look like a million bucks and be freaking hilarious at the same time. Cheers to you, Kelly! And here's some definite PROOF!!! 

Alright fine. Wonder Woman is much hotter, but I thought my ass looked good.
This workout will take you 25 minutes to complete- each exercise is to be done FIVE times in a row for 30 seconds each. Give yourself 15 seconds in between each set, and 45 seconds when moving to the next exercise. 

1. Jump Stars
Complete two jumping jacks. Every third jack you will jump so that your body looks like a star- jumping as high as you can off the ground! Repeat two jumping jacks, one star jump.

2. Double Lunge, Double Squat
Begin in a split-leg position. Complete one jumping lunge on both sides, and jump directly into a squat to the right and a squat to the left. Repeat.

3. One and a Half Push Ups
Start in push up position. Bring your chest down so your elbows are 90 degrees. Come halfway up, then back down, then all the way up!

4. Plank Twists
Begin in a plank position, hands under the shoulders. Move your right hand to your left hip while STILL in your plank position. Then turn your entire body to the left into a side plank. Return to centre and repeat other side.

4. High Knee to Burpee Jump Back
Complete 4 high knees to your right and jump back into a burpee (plank position). Jump your feet back to your hands and complete 4 high knees to your left. Repeat!

5. Tricep Cat
Start in push up position. Bring your chest down so your elbows are 90 degrees. Come halfway up, then back down, then all the way up!

Happy Monday, peeps! Start your week off right with this kick ass workout- and remember, you're all Wonder Women!!! (Even you, guys.)


  1. Holy Crap! The 'Tricep Cat looks like it is no joke!

  2. Hello there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about creating my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? Many thanks
