4 Pinterest Workouts That Kicked My Lazy Butt
One editor who never works out tries four of the most popular Pinterest workouts. Which one is the most effective?
My take on the Ninety-Nine WorkoutThe number 99 tacked in front of any exercise is likely daunting to anyone, but I quickly realize the secret to making this workout feel a lot more doable is to start from the bottom and work your way up. So I start with the 11-minute run. And after the first 4 minutes, I can't take a deep breath without a piercing pain in my lungs.
The next day, I tackle the "22" part of the workout: 22 jumping jacks, crunches, leg lifts, a 22-second "wall sit," and 2 push-ups. The push-ups are a breeze compared to the wall sit. It only takes a few seconds before my thighs begin to burn and my legs start to shake.
But I have to say that despite my initial fears, this workout isn't impossible -- even for a pansy like me. Each portion should only take 5 to 10 minutes and you can do one section a day and work your way up to the 99. For a more strenuous workout, you can do all the reps at once.
