  1. Hey!

    I’ve been looking for a beginner routine as I’m pretty much at zero with my exercising, if we don’t count the daily running. This one seems like a pretty cool routine. I will probably give this a try tomorrow.

    On average, how much time would you say it takes to complete?

    Cheers and have an Awesome Day!

    • Depends on how fast you run and how many breaks you take this routine should take about 45min to an hour.

      Train like a Champion!

  2. That’s some workout. You have to be in some shape first before running a mile and then 3 rounds of that. Then the boxing routine. WOW!
    It’s quite a grind. Love to do it!
