Good morning and happy Monday, friends!

Let’s kick off the week with a killer workout! Are you guys ready for this one? It incorporates two of my favorite, full-body movements (Man Makers + running) for a seriously high-intensity and challenging workout. It’s a “good” one for sure!

10 to 1 Man Maker + Running Workout

How to do this workout: Perform 10 Man Makers and then run 400 meters. After that, you’ll do 9 Man Makers followed by a 400 meter run. Then, 8 Man Makers, 400 meter run, 7 Man Makers, 400 meter run… all the way down to 1 Man Maker with a final 400 meter run. You’ll run a total of 2.5 miles during this workout, but you can always reduce the running to 200 meters. It’ll still be an awesome workout!

Ok, so you’ve never done a Man Maker before? You’re in for a treat!! Start with two dumbbells, one in each hand, in the top of a push-up position. Do a push-up and then perform a row, right arm and then left arm, with the dumbbells.


Then, jump your feet in and perform a Squat Clean to Thruster with the dumbbells.


Once you stand up and finish the Thruster, you’ve completed one rep.


After that, bring the dumbbells back to the ground and repeat. Here’s a great video that shows the full Man Maker movement from start to finish.


Happy sweating!!



  1. My love for these kinds of workouts is HIGH! 🙂 I love at home gym workouts, and you’re always an inspiration for them Tina.

  2. Ugh, brutal! This is probably a smoker of a workout but…I’d rather do 4x as many burpees than man-makers. 🙂 For me, they are right up there next to thrusters as “most hated movements”.

    Hope you had a great weekend!

  3. Holy crap.. Just did this workout and legit wanted to puke towards the end of it. At first I was looking forward to the 400’s because I was over the man makers and then by the end I was begging for more rest time. Anyways, I definitely felt my form falling apart with the squat cleans toward the end of it. Thanks for an awesome Monday sweat sesh!!

  4. Oh my god, man makers suuuuck! But they are a great exercise! I’m pretty sure they fall one step below burpees on the suck scale. But this looks like a GREAT workout! And simple too! No need to always make fitness so complicated!

  5. I saw this workout yesterday morning and decided to do it last night. I loved it! I was dripping sweat by the end. I only used 5 lbs weight because it was my first time doing it, but next time I’ll definitely up the weight…thanks for sharing!

  6. What a great start to the day this workout will be. I will definitely be doing this before I start work. Curious to how the name “Man Maker” came about? Thanks for the great workout.
