They say it’s your birthday


Number 9 … Number 9


Beatles fans, get the hints? In case you missed it, we’re celebrating our nine-year birthday this week! (You can see all the special posts here including — yes! — AWESOME giveaways.) And, of course, we’re going to celebrate with you in the best way we know how: a killer workout. A workout that’s all based on the number — you guessed it — 9.

Here’s the basic idea: 9 moves. 9 reps. 9 rounds. Whether you’re an exercise newbie or been working out like a beast for years, you can do this workout and take it as fast or as slow as you need to (and, of course, modifying as necessary, too — taking high-impact moves to low-impact, push-ups from the knees, walking instead of jumping back for the burpees, etc.). It’s full-body and bodyweight only, so it’s a great one to do at home, when traveling, at the park — wherever!

Be sure to warm up with five minutes or so of marching or jogging in place and cool down with some stretching and more walking once you’re done.
