Today’s Lifehacker Workout: An Awesome Finish

Today’s Lifehacker Workout: An Awesome Finish

We’ve been talking about The Lifehacker Workout, a group exercise program, for almost four weeks now. Here’s a great confidence booster: you’re on week four and the last workout of the week. Congrats everyone!

Whether you’ve been doing the exercises diligently or just catching up, today’s workout will make you feel good, promise. The video above shows you how to do today’s workout: 20 minutes of walking or jogging plus 10 minutes of strength exercises (five push ups, 10 crunches, 15 squats; repeat). There are video instructions in the playlist above, but you can skip through those three to fast forward to the 10-minute looped video showing the core exercise reps. (Following along with that video by Martin Reid of Personal Victory really helps me keep going).

You can also see the challenge and workouts on Fleetly.

We’re working on continuing the group workout for at least another month (on Fleetly and/or perhaps elsewhere), so stay tuned.


  • If you’re planning to do strength exercises, you shouldn’t be doing that much cardio prior, as it fatigues you and limits your output.

    The maximum cardio you should be doing pre-weights is 1 – 1.5 minutes to ensure your body is warm. All of my trainers have told me, weights / strength always before cardio. This allows you to target your fat stores during the weights, and bring it out to be burnt along with the cardio. The effect of this is synergistic.
