  1. Loved the captions!!! Love Sarah for being a great sport!! Love you guys!!! The best – and I want a wall of power too!!!

  2. Just finished reading “Train Like a Mother.” It is great to see these exercises done in real life (I was all kinds of confused about those sailor sit-ups!). This looks like just the kind of quick, full body workout I’ve been looking for. I will definitely be trying these out tomorrow!

  3. A suggestion for your copious free time (ha!) — I just shared this video on FB, and it gave me 16 icons to choose from for the post…none of which was the logo or name of the book/site, just your sponsors and such. Not entirely sure where you could put such an icon to be grabbed, but it would help create some continuity for such postings.

  4. That was great! Thanks for the visuals! I just did this and it was challenging and fun. I’m sweaty now. I found my handstand Wall of Power in the room where my future treadmill will live. Coincidence? I don’t think so.

  5. Loved the video, and Sarah, your rocked it! I did the entire workout minus the one-legged squats. As long as I don’t squat or lunge, my knee and I get along just fine. I substituted wall sits. Did the sailor situps just fine – I used to do them all the time and called them deck squats (don’t know who named them that). Hubby got a little tense when I climbed up the wall, but I reminded him who paints them (me) and he got the message. Just wait until I paint Wall of Power on it!!

  6. Rut row! I think I am in trouble for the “Ellen v Michelle” push up challenge at Zooma Cape Cod! Looking good SBS!!

  7. This is an AWESOME video!
    thanks a bunch for sharing with us… so much easier than having to go online on my ipad to google videos of each of the exercises I dont know! SBS, you did awesome!

  8. Way to go Sarah….even if the sailor sit-ups didn’t happen. 🙂 But you totally rocked the handstand!!!

    Thank you SO much for the video demo….love the Coldplay soundtrack, btw AND the subliminal you=awesome segways!!

    Now, where can I get a WALL of POWER!?!??

  9. How did you know that a. was in the process of adding this routine to my (currently non-existent) cross training and b. that I was having trouble visualizing how to do some of the exercises?! THANK YOU!

    1. Jacqui – me too! Was welling up everytime “you=awesome” flashed on screen and then had to squeeze out the tears to see the next move!

  10. I was just thinking that I needed to do more than just run – what a great way to get some crosstraining in without it being overwhelming!

  11. Looks like it hits every major muscle group in a short amount of time! I think I can work this into my schedule – thanks Ashleigh and Sarah!!

  12. I love the reinforcement that I am doing some of these things right and others that I need to work on. It does a body good and I am loving that it helps me feel pretty good, while nursing a back injury.

  13. This is a lot like what i have been doing in my gym class. Loved seeing this and will help me on vacation when I can’t get to a class. How can I save this to replay at those times???

    1. you could save it as a favorite/bookmark it from the YouTube site – click on the YouTube icon on the back bar below the video while it’s playing, that will let you watch it on YouTube and bookmark it from there. Or, you could do what I’m going to do – because I hate Favorites and Bookmarks – you can Pin It to a Pinterest board so you always have it!

  14. Very cool! How will I be able to find this once it isn’t the main blog post? Will it be added to the “Sweaty Workouts” tab?
