I have a fitness problem. I was doing squats in the shower this morning. You know, just perfecting my form — standard stuff not weird at all…

I just got rid of my gym membership in favor of doing “prison workouts” — workouts I can do in the comfort of my own home. It made sense for me because a) I only join gyms in the winter for the use of the treadmill (I don’t have much cold weather running gear) and b)I’m mostly concerned with my core and doing body-weight exercises.

So I came across this workout consisting of only squats and pushups and I thought “This is the type of workout a lot of people can and should do.”

Start with one body-weight squat and ten pushups. Rest 30 seconds, then do 2 squats and 9 pushups. Work your way up to 10 squats and 1 pushup.

See? Simple.. or easy enough to describe at least.  You end up doing 55 of each exercise (hence fitty-fi) and it is a ten minute workout that will definitely get your core charged. If maxing at 10 seems daunting, feel free to start at 9,8,7,6, or 5. See how that works?

If you’re unsure of how to properly do a squat or pushup, don’t hesitate to comment or e-mail me cdeleon@rcptfit.com

C’mon,  be a rebel…
