You ready to seal your fate? 

This Valentine’s Day workout only consists of one exercise. That’s right, just one. But you get to choose which exercises will be your date for today’s workout.

Date number one: Split Squat Jumps

Date number two: Reverse Lunges

Have you chosen your date for today’s Valentine’s Day workout? 


Here’s the workout. 

Set a timer for 10 minutes. (Yes, this is a micro workout. No, it is not easy.)

Every minute on the minute perform 15 full, clean, reps.

Rest the rest of the minute.


After the 10 minutes are up you will have accomplished 150 reps of either split squat jumps, or reverse lunges. 

Bonus? You can swap out the exercise and do this again the next time you are crunched for time! That is, if you can still walk after this!
