The Gone Girl Workout

Guys.  I cannot stop freaking out right now.

Last night Jimmy and I finally went to go see the movie Gone Girl and my life is complete.  I read the book over a year or two ago and I have been waiting for the day that I could see it in movie form.

In addition to the fact that I have loved Ben Affleck since I was but a wee babe, I think my obsession with both Gillian Flynn and the twisted mind of Amy Dunne rival that of any preteen crush. I have to stop talking about it now or I will give it all away.  It was one of the best adaptations I have ever seen. {and it was extra fun getting to watch the story unfold for Jimmy for the first time, he even said that it was one of the best movies he’s seen in awhile}.

That being said, in honor of the movie I decided to come up with a work out semi-inspired by the movie/book.  Now, when I say inspired by, that is a very loose translation.  I’m more so referring to Amy Dunne’s “work smarter not harder” mentality. With a another new schedule for work I now have to be present, ready to go, fed and exercised by 9 AM. {aka the mornings equal crunch time and farewell Kelly and Michael}.  I will wake up early to exercise, however I will also draw the line at waking up any earlier than 4:45 AM. That being said between getting ready, working out, eating, and driving to work {40min- 1hr commute here people}, in the mornings I only have about an hour that I can work out these days. The 15 to 20 minute circuit below is meant to be completed in any studio or open space when you need to workout but don’t exactly have all morning to do it.

The key is to not stop until all 10 moves have been completed at 30 sec a piece.  Of course take breaks if you need to between the full sets.  Once completing the work out and getting my heart going I went through the main floor and did some isolated leg exercises.  From there, I was good to go for the day. Great news about this workout is that if I don’t have time to make it to the gym I can roll out of bed and complete it right in my living room, as long as it people below me don’t care 🙂

What do you guys think of the quick circuit workout?  Do you love Gone Girl as much as I do? Have you read the book or seen the movie?
