A workout like this; full of high reps and zero rest time, should be done with a lighter weight. An 8lb medicine ball is used for this workout, but you can use a dumbbell or just your own body weight if you prefer.
The reps are high and rest is low, therefore this workout will increase your heart rate and make you sweat! Stick to a weight that you’ll be able to get through all the reps without resting. It’s OK to stop and take a quick sip of water between exercises of course, but during each 100 rep round, push as hard as you can to get to 100 reps without stopping. You might have to really use your mind power for this workout, especially for the single leg glute bridges!!
