This workout was harder to make than you might imagine.
First, I wasn’t actually angry when I started filming! So, I had to tone down my natural bubbly enthusiasm, because I know that when you are angry, perky people make you want to punch something. Ha!
But then, while the cameras were rolling and I was kicking and slamming down, all these frustrations inside me started bubbling up. It was crazy, but also really cathartic. I didn’t think I had any negative emotions to release, but apparently I did.
And, boy, did this workout release them! Oh, my goodness, what fun to punch and kick and throw things! By the time 20 minutes were up, everything was out and I felt terrific again.
If you are feeling angry, frustrated, underappreciated, irritated, mad, peeved or rage-filled, this is definitely the workout for you. 🙂
The ANGRY Workout | Release ANGER + FRUSTRATION, 20 Minutes of Punching, Kicking + Throwing Things
Detachable PUNCHING BAG or an old SOFA CUSHION

Why you’re going to ❤ this workout:
It’s a super safe way to express your feelings AND release some endorphins, both of which will make you feel better. Also, there’s that whole calorie-burning thing that you’ll get from the high heart rate cardio, and the ab toning. Don’t forget the ab toning.
Where this fits into your routine:
Let’s call this one a CARDIO and CORE HIIT. Sure, there’s a little strength training when you hoist the cushion overhead to slam it down, but mostly this one is high heart rate. And, honestly, are you really thinking about whether or not today is cardio right now? This pretty much fits ANYWHERE in your plan.
Who can do this workout safely and well:
Pretty much anybody who’s mad enough. Just be sure you’re bracing your core, okay?
