Do-Anywhere Running + Bodyweight Workout

This post is sponsored by Zappos.com.

Good morning!

When it comes to my workouts, my favorite motto is “Never Miss a Monday” because it sets the tone for my week and gets the momentum rolling with all of my healthy habits. Since it’s Monday (helloooo, #mondaymotivation), let’s get moving with a workout that you can do just about anywhere.

Wearing: Brooks Fremont Tank Top // Brooks Greenlight Capris // Brooks Juno Sports Bra // Brooks Glycerin <— Did you know that Zappos.com sells more than just shoes!? It’s true! They sell all sorts of awesome name brand apparel, handbags, and accessories for women, men, and kids! Woohoo! 

With this running + bodyweight workout, there’s no need for a gym or any sort of equipment. The only thing you need is your body and some space to run. Well, ok, you’ll need an object (i.e. bench, curb) for Step-Ups and Tricep Dips, so just keep your eyes peeled! Coupled with high-intensity running (think: push-pace), you’ll use your bodyweight in three different movements for a challenging, head-to-toe workout. I promise, it’s a good one! Are you ready to sweat? Let’s go!!

Here’s the workout:

  • Jog for 5-10 minutes (warm-up)
  • Run 800 meters
  • 15 Step-Ups with Leg Lift (each leg)
  • 15 Plank Jacks
  • 15 Triceps Dips
  • Run 400 meters
  • 12 Step-Ups with Leg Lift (each leg)
  • 12 Plank Jacks
  • 12 Triceps Dips
  • Run 200 meters
  • 9 Step-Ups with Leg Lift (each leg)
  • 9 Plank Jacks
  • 9 Triceps Dips

For more of a challenge, repeat the workout from the beginning (after the warm-up) as many times as you’d like. You can also start at the end of the workout with the set of 9 and work to the beginning, finishing with the set of 15 reps. It’s totally up to you! And, of course, you can always add or subtract distance to the running intervals depending on your fitness level. Happy sweating!

Now that spring is here, I just can’t get enough of the warm weather and sunshine! I seriously can’t wait to get outside for more outdoor runs and driveway workouts! 🙂 It’s finally time to ditch the long-sleeves and leggings (boo, winter layers) in exchange for lightweight performance tops, fun leggings, and some new running shoes to quite literally hit the ground running! Here are some details about my outfit pictured above:

  • Brooks Fremont Tank Top: This tank is perfect for keeping you cool on warm-weather runs. It’s lightweight with moisture-wicking fabric and perforated panels for even more ventilation. It’s not super fitted, but it gives you a little shape at the same time.
  • Brooks Greenlight Capris: I actually blogged about these running capris last week because they are THE BEST EVER. They fit really well with a wide, flat waist that slims and stays put. The waist hits semi-high on your waist, but still below your bellybutton, so there’s no need for a drawstring. The fabric is very Lululemon-esque (smooth, soft, and hugs in all the right places), so they’re definitely a favorite!
  • Brooks Juno Sports Bra: The Juno is my favorite sports bra for running because it’s lightweight, breathable, and doesn’t rub or chafe your skin. And, of course, I love its signature front-adjustable straps, which ensures the perfect fit (and it’s amazing for breastfeeding moms)!
  • Brooks Glycerin: My go-to running shoe! It’s definitely a sneaker that I can rely on for long-distance running. The Glycerin provides a good amount of support and stability, but it’s still a lightweight shoe. Love, love, love!

I also love, love, love how easy it is to shop Zappos.com. They offer FAST, FREE shipping and a 365-day return policy, which makes exchanges/returns a piece of cake, especially when you order a zillion pairs of gray top-siders. Ha! You can return them without a hassle!

  1. These types of workouts are perfect for traveling! I usually do bodyweight tabata style workouts outside when I’m traveling and don’t have access to a gym. Always gets the heart rate up!

  2. I always love to pack a jump rope and resistance bands when I’m traveling. They don’t take up much space and they help me get in a great workout regardless of what I may have at my finger tips!

  3. I just discovered Brooks Glycerin shoes and I love them! I was formerly a die hard Asics fan, but they changed their shoes somewhat and the Glycerin provide so much cushion for my high arches so they are my new favorite!

  4. If there is a gym around I will always opt for that, otherwise I will go for a run or find a workout on Pinterest or YouTube. I’ve never shopped Zappo’s but may need to give it a look now.

  5. Brooks is the best! I don’t have any apparel but swear by the MC Uprise bras and Launch shoe lines!

  6. Great workout! I’ll have to try this on my trail run today.

    I use to shop via zappos while in college. I went to school in a very snowy city so warm winter boots and warm cute shoes were a must have.

  7. Brooks Glycerins are my favorite too! I’ve never used zappos.com before but I feel like I’ll have to check them out, anything where exchanges or returns are easy is the name of the game!

  8. If you don’t wear a Garmin, is there a trick to figuring out how far you should go for the 200-800 meter runs?

  9. Wow! After a lot of research, I just find some awesome body workouts.
    Thank you for sharing such awesome and detailed information about body workouts.
    Keep posting.

  10. Great workouts for summer travel! I love to do push up workouts and while travelling I love to walk alone for a long distance. This blog is really very helpful. Keep posting.
