Fitness week workout – 25 minutes of fun

Hi Team!


Have you ever had trouble finding a short and focused workout that fits into your busy schedule and still gives you great results? If so, look no further! This is 25 minutes of fun.


Welcome to another Fitness Week at MikedUp Blog! This one is complete with a short – body weight centric – workout that really makes you earn some R&R when it’s all over.


I’ll explain the workout below, but when you’re checking out this week’s video you’ll get to see me and Caleb (1 of 3 brothers-in-law) going through the workout. Caleb is like me in that he’s a former/at times current athlete who played some sports in high school and college. Where he goes above and beyond is the fact that he’s currently in the Army National Guard, been deployed, served 11 years in the Army, and currently training to prepare for Army OTS (Officer Training School). He took some time out of his busy schedule to help me show you guys another solid workout that you can get through in just… 25 minutes.


The workout:


5 moves performed one after the other completes 1 circuit. We will be doing 5 circuits where the moves won’t change but the work/rest time will. Here are the exercises:


8 Count Body-builder,      wall sit,      mountain climber,      dips,      Tic-Tacs with a reach


No worries if you don’t know what each exercise is – the video below will show you exactly what to do.


For each exercise you will have 1 total minute (60 seconds). The amount of work time in that minute will vary for each round of the circuit:


Circuit number
Work time (seconds)
Rest time (seconds)


This weeks’ video will help you to understand the exercises, the workout flow, and the fact that you will sweat. Check it out here:



I hope you’ll give this workout a shot. If you’re willing to devote 25 minutes of your day to fitness – I know you’ll be proud of yourself after this one.


Let’s get after it!

  1. Wow! Commitment = results. Definitely not a beginners workout, any tips for the not so advanced beginners in the future posts?

    1. Hi Amanda! Thank you for your comment and the great question. I have two answers for you: 1) don’t be intimidated by this one. Feel free to modify the moves to fit your fitness level and adjust your work times to fit your abilities. You can try to improve from one workout to the next. 2) we’ll have more workouts to come in the future and they’ll all be a bit different – some more challenging than others. If you modify the moves and workout though, you’ll be able to tackle most, if not all, of them.
