Post The Whole 30 is a whole new reality. Now that the challenge is over and the world of food has swung it's doors wide open, the threat of losing everything I gained in the past 30 days looms. As I've written before, I dropped about 18 pounds during The Whole 30. Now granted, most of that is water weight and will undoubtedly appear once I introduce more sugar and carbohydrates back into my diet. Another one of the many benefits is increased energy. Lot's and lots of energy. In an attempt to keep the weight off I plan to utilize all that extra power by working out consistently. The only problem, like most parents with a career, finding time to workout can be tricky. Time is of the essence, and that's why I created my own 15 min workout designed to maintain my weight after The Whole 30.


The workout begins with sprints. I turn the speed of the treadmill up to 10. Once the desired rate of speed is reached, I jump on and run for 30 seconds and then rest for 30 seconds. I do this for a total of six minutes.

Goblet squats:

Stan with your feet shoulder-width apart, secure the top of a dumbbell with both hands and hold it vertically in front of your chest.
Make sure to keep your back straight, squat down and exhale. Extend your hips and knees to return to a standing position repeat for four minutes.


Do as many pushups as you can for the remaining time.


I am not a trainer. Please make sure you see a doctor before you attempt any psychical activity. This is just a workout I've found useful and beneficial to myself. Now here is a video of me running in slow motion.
