Hi Everyone,

Today I turned 32 and I'm so grateful for all of the birthday wishes from all of my friends and family all over the world.  I can honestly say that I'm happy.  As I reflect on this past year, I realize how much I have to be grateful for.  My wish this year is to spread the word of health and touch people's lives on a much larger scale.  I hope that you will help me make my wish come true by focusing on your own needs.  Make it a priority to treat yourself and your body with care and respect.  Surround yourself with positive forces, eat wholesome foods, exercise regularly, make time to enjoy life, and reap the benefits of good health.

I live in one of the most fascinating places in the world.  The UAE is home to many of the biggest, tallest, largest, and best structures in the world and I plan on sharing these wonders with all of you, in addition to showing you my workouts.  Today I decided to show you the skyline of Dubai Marina & JBR, and Burj Al Arab from my rooftop.  The workout is only 12 minutes long and consists of 4 different exercises.  As always, a beginner version is included in my video and below you'll find the complete workout details:

 

 Workout Details:
Set your interval timer to countdown from 12 minutes or just keep track of the time on a watch or a clock.  Perform the following 4 exercises one after the other until the time runs out.  Do 10 repetitions for each exercise.  Keep track of your sets so that you can try to beat your score the next time you try this workout.

1. Plank Diagonal Jumps x 10 reps:  From the plank position, jump your feet forward and to the right. Return to start position, then repeat to the left.  This counts as 1 repetition.

2. Twisting Squat Jumps x 10 reps:  Every squat counts as 1 repetition.

3. Walking Push-Ups x 10 reps:  Every push-up counts as 1 repetition.

4. Bum Lift Toe Touch x 10 reps:  One bum lift, then touching your toes counts as 1 repetition.

Repeat the sequence again until the 12 minutes are up.

Enjoy the workout!  Let me know how you did.

 

Until next time, I am
