Got a duffle bag handy? Give this workout a try!

It doesn’t always have to be about pushing heavy weights or using the latest and greatest training tools.  Sometimes what you have in your house can work just fine and actually make the workout pretty fun!

I was up at the crack of dawn this morning for a seminar and wanted to squeeze a workout in beforehand since I knew I would be sitting quite a bit.  Only problem is, what the hell do I do?

Then I remembered that one of my college golfers was playing around with using her duffle bag as a weight a few months back and we tried it out while waiting for a flight.  We also got some very strange looks from people passing by.

Thankfully I had a nike duffle sitting around and I filled it with some sweatshirts to add some moderate weight.  This is the circuit I put together, you can set your timer for 20 minutes or complete 6 full rounds!

  • 10 Squats
  • 5 Pushups
  • 10 Snatches/Cleans/jump squats/something fun
  • 10 Alternating Lunges
  • 10 Thrusters (you can throw the bag into the air if you want)

Since my house is situated on a circle, I used that as a make shift track and sprinted in-between each round (about 30 seconds).

The beauty of this workout is that you can do it at your office, at home, a hotel room, pretty much anywhere you want.  This is when exercise truly becomes a part of your life, when you can wake up early and recognize that it’s all or something!

Happy weekend friends, S
