Movie Workout: The Greatest Showman

Josh and I watched The Greatest Showman several months ago for the first time and it quickly became a family favorite. It also became the new soundtrack for our family dance parties that happen daily. This movie just makes me happy when I watch it. The dancing, the singing, and costumes are all amazing.

Our oldest is dressing up as PT Barnum for Halloween this year and I am in the process of sewing his coat. Wish me luck.

This soundtrack has been on repeat in our house for the last few months. I have shared only one other movie workout on the blog it was for Frozen. So it has been awhile since anything like this has been posted.

You can do the workout while you are watching the movie or you can do it listening to the soundtrack. The soundtrack version of this workout is tough because there is no rest and you are working for 39 minutes straight. For the entire duration of each song you will either rotate between two exercises or do a single exercise.

Disclaimer: Not all exercises are suitable for everyone and this or any other exercise program may result in injury. To reduce this risk of injury, please consult your doctor before beginning this, or any other, physical fitness program. Any user of this workout assumes the full risk of injury resulting from performing the routine presented.

You will need a set of heavy weights for the deadlights, squats, and rows, medium weight for biceps curls, presses, and lunges, and light weights for triceps kickbacks. You will also need a stability ball for the pikes and hamstring curls.

For the entire duration of each song you will either rotate between two exercises or do a single exercise the entire song. For example on The Greatest Show you will perform 5 plank walkouts followed by 10 alternating lunges and repeat until the song is finished. Challenge yourself with those burpees on The Other Side and see if you can hold the plank for the entire duration on A Million Dreams (Reprise).

Please feel free to modify as needed. Take your pushups to the wall and sub out any core exercise that works best for your body and where you are today. If jumping is not your thing skip the burpees and just sit down and get up and down the floor to your feet. You will still be sweating after 3 minutes of doing that, trust me.

Enjoy and have fun singing and sweating while you are working hard :).
