So here’s how the workout looks – 

  1. Turn on a running clock. You’ll want to keep an eye on the clock because you’ll be working for 40 seconds then resting for 20 seconds.
  2. Each round consists of 4 movements. You’ll do 40 seconds of as many bulgarian split squats as possible on your right leg. Then rest for 20 seconds. Then you’ll complete as many push ups as possible in 40 seconds with your feet elevated then rest for 20 seconds. Then same thing with bulgarian split squats on your left leg. And you’ll finish the round off with as many tuck jumps as possible in 40 seconds. You will repeat this 4 more times.
  3. Keep track of how many reps you do on the first round and try to stay consistent with those numbers throughout the entire workout.

For modifications and tips –

  • For the bulgarian split squats – You can keep your back foot on the ground instead of a bench and simple bend the back knee and lightly kiss the knee – this is called a split squat.
  • For push ups – Push ups can be done with feet on the ground or knees on the ground. The point of a push up is to use your arms, chest and back, not your entire body to simply flop on and off the ground. So tuck the chin, engage the core (tuck in the abs), and tuck the elbows in. I’d rather you do less push ups with perfect form than more push ups with sh*tty form. Practice makes perfect with push ups so stay consistent and be patient and form will come over time.
  • For the tuck jumps – If tuck jumps aren’t working for you, you can always do high knees or jumping squats as an alternative.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. I haven’t been on here for a while and so glad to see everything! It’s even better than I remember!! Really liking this workout with a snack idea – keep up all the good work and thank you!

  2. Hey awesome sauce! Just wanted to say thanks for this great snack idea! Anytime I can sneak more collagen into my diet=a good day. AND, my picky toddler loved these, too! Though confession, I added a few chocolate chips to mine knowing you wouldn’t judge me for it. Keep on being so gosh darn fabulous!

  3. Hi there – these are delicious! I just made them. Next time I am going to mix the trail mix in better with the wet because when I froze mine and took them out the trail mix was all still loose. I just poured it on top and it didn’t deep down enough to cement everything together. So didn’t look as pretty as your but still tastes delicious!

  4. These have been the answer to all my 5AM coaching woes. I coach at 5, 6, and 7, and then the only time carved out of my day to work out myself is at 8:00. But I had been feeling so terrible and starving by 8:00 that I would skip working out, and then feel even worse! I couldn’t find a snack that fixed the problem. These bars are something I’m able to eat 1/2 of at 4:30 AM, then the other half right before my own work out, and I never feel yucky.

    PROBLEM. SOLVED. Thank you!!

  5. Mine definitely don’t look as pretty as yours ????????. I think my proportions got off a bit, so I ended up melting a bit more cashew butter and coconut oil/honey down to mix in., and mixed mine up a bit in the pan to make sure everything stuck together. Can’t wait to have one as midday workday snack! Do you find that they thaw out quickly once removed from the freezer (for transporting to work, etc).

  6. Juli,
    What do you think about the primal kitchen vanilla coconut collagen peptide? Does it compare to the unflavored one you use? I am trying to stay as clean as possible with this.
    Thank you,
    Dajana

    1. if you’re trying to stay as clean as possible, i would stick with the unflavored collagen protein. if you look at the ingredients in the vanilla coconut, it includes Grass-Fed Bovine Collagen Peptides, Coconut Milk Powder, Monk Fruit Extract, Konjac Root, Vanilla Extract, Sea Salt. now compared that to collagen peptides which only ingredient is collagen.
