Tony takes you through a series of total-body rounds designed to maximize strength gains and fat loss with the objective of boot camp fitness in just 8 weeks.
Resistance 1. These are 5 simple moves, but with 3 back-to-back rounds, the challenge is intense. That's how you get results in just 22 minutes a day.
Cardio 1. This 7-move workout gets your heart pumping from Minute One. Keep up with the platoon and earn a massive calorie burn.
Core 1. It's called 'Hard Corps' for a reason. Get ready to work your lower back, abs, and obliques in this epic 10-move drill.
Resistance 2. Did I hear you ask for more? Here it is. More resistance. More sweat. More muscles recruited.
Cardio 2. This is basic training, but there's nothing easy about it. It's 3 rounds of 7 exercises, just like Cardio 1, but these moves will push your limits even further.
Core 2. You've survived Core 1. Now the reps are doubled—to test your limits and maximize the burn.
Resistance 3. This workout takes the intensity up a click by adding plyometric strength training to challenge your endurance.

I purchased this set directly from Beachbody since it was not yet on Amazon. Other workout programs I have done are: P90x, Turbo Fire, Insanity (2 rounds), T25, and Jillian Michaels' Body Revolution (I know, I know, that one isn't Beachbody). That being said, I am NOT a natural athlete and I do all of these programs out of necessity not out of a love of working out. With these programs I have lost 45 lbs not once, but twice (once for wedding prep and once after giving birth) so I can tell you they all absolutely work- as long as you find the program that is right for you. So, leave a comment if you are curious as to how any of those aforementioned programs stack up if you wanted a baseline comparison.
I just started the third week and so far I love 22 minute hard corps. First up, the format:
The program is 8 weeks long. Three days a week you are doing cardio, three days a week you are doing resistance. On cardio days, you can add a core workout, so your total workout time is closer to 32 minutes for those 3 days a week. There is also an optional "Cold Start" workout that runs 10:24. It is actually not listed on the calendar but could be added to any day where you want a more gradual start to your workout. Lets be honest though, folks, you want this program because it is 22 minutes (or maybe that's just me? :)
Next up, style of workouts:
*3 Rounds of: T- Jacks, Bear Crawls, Lateral Shuffle, Forward Lunge Twist, Basic Burpee, A-Skips, and Run Lunge Squats (22 second breaks in between each round)
*Bonus Round of 22 Bear Crawls and 22 Burpees
Cardio 2 and 3 follow a very similar format, but with different variations of the moves (for example, Frog Burpees instead of Basic Burpees. The numbers of each moves increases or decreases each round.
Core 1/2: 9 minutes and 10 seconds/ 11 minutes 19 seconds. At around 10 minutes each, you have no excuse to not fit this in on the day the calendar calls for it (paired with cardio workouts- so 3x a week)
*Short Warm-up (2 minutes)
*3 Rounds of: Push-Ups, Squat Thrust, Pull-ups, Chopper Lunges, Sit-up Punches
*Bonus Round of Sprint, Burpee, Push-ups
Resistance 2 and 3 again, follow a similar format but each move is modified in a slightly harder variation.
Overall, the moves are not complex- more of a "back to basics", but they are there for a reason. They work.
You will need weights (I am using 10lbs but will be upping to 15lbs next time), a pull up bar (or band- I can't do pull ups yet so I am modifying with bands), and a surface you can jump and plank on comfortably (so either a mat or just a softer surface).
Now, the big question: Is this workout right for me? Well that depends:
*Are you looking for something HARDER or on par with Insanity or P90x?
No, this will not be hard enough for you. With Insanity, I was literally dripping sweat on the ground by the end of each workout. If you are looking to be more intense than that- move on to Insanity:Asylum.
*Are you finishing up p90x/Insanity/any other hour long workout and just thinking: "Dang, I'm getting into this 'working out every day' routine, but come on- AN HOUR?"
Then yes, this is perfect for you. At about half the length of Insanity, this is a good maintenance program if you are looking to continue your good habits but just need a little break from committing upwards of an hour a day (or 90 minutes... I'm talkin' to you, YogaX). This is probably who I would recommend this program to the most.
*Are you a true beginner just starting out on your workout journey?
Maybe. You *will* be challenged and you *will* take breaks. You will probably have to modify some of the moves depending on your strengths/weaknesses. But, that's ok. If you follow the schedule, you *will* improve and to be honest, the only person who you are in competition with is the person who you were yesterday. If that sounds like a great challenge- then yes, I recommend this program whole heartedly. If it sounds a little scary, I'd start with something like Jillian Michaels' Body Revolution and then try this.
Other things I love:
-Military theme, using vets as his cast
-Abs are scheduled 3x a week (so I can already feel a huge difference!)
The only thing I don't love (but others might) is that the meal plan uses the same concept as 21 Day Fix with the colored food containers. For me, that is a pain to keep track of and I would have rather just had some good ol' fashioned recipes. But, if you are finishing up 21 Day Fix, this is a great next step for you.
I will update in the coming weeks as I finish the whole program!
**Update 4/22** I just finished week 5 and I think this is my favorite Beachbody program so far. I love that even being over halfway done with the program, I am still challenged with "just" a 22 minute workout. I love having ab work 3x a week and I am seeing the best results in my abs and arms.
**Completed program update 5/13/16**
I just finished the last day of this program (8 weeks) and wanted to provide a quick update. Overall, I am so happy I did this program and would still recommend it to others, however here are some updated notes/details/thoughts:
-I noticed the most difference in my abs and biceps. Having an ab workout 3x a week really toned my abs and there is a pretty big focus on biceps and shoulders. I found that my triceps and butt could have used a little more of a workout- so if you are specifically looking to tone those areas, I would recommend adding something else to your routine.
-I still love the concept of cramming in an intense workout into 22 minutes- hands down my favorite part of the program.
-After 8 weeks, the workouts are still a challenge because you can always modify them to make them harder- so if they start to get easy you can up the weight or do more reps. However, I *am* getting a little tired of the same workouts over and over so for my next challenge I will be doing a T25 and 22MHC hybrid. My goals with that are to add in some variety, add in the opportunity to tone my triceps and butt, and keep with the under-30-minutes time frame.
**I am not a Beachbody Coach- just a fan who has done several of the Beachbody programs**
About me: I’m a 49 year old male and feel that I’m in okay shape. I’ve done many workout series in the past including P90X, Insanity, UFC Fit and RIP:60. By the way, I’m not a BeachBody Coach.
For this workout, I did the schedule as written and didn’t miss a workout (including the extra core workout on the cardio days). I didn’t do any additional exercises outside of this schedule either. For the nutrition part: I followed a Paleo diet during the whole 8 weeks and was fairly clean throughout (only had a few cheat meals/drinks here and there).
I was a bit skeptical that a person could get good results by working out only 22 to 33 minutes a day, but thought it was worth a try since I’d prefer shorter workouts. With that said, I lost 11lbs in 8 weeks (from 177lbs down to 166). I’m now a believer!
22 minute Hard Corps is one of my favorite work out series. I liked the military style of the workouts and it never got over the top with the drill Sargent stuff. Tony was great in the series. He cut out the banter that was in P90X - making the workouts fly by. He also made the workouts more efficient. The exercises were easy to learn and used compound movements – incorporating multiple muscle groups in a single exercise. The resistance days were my favorite. I should also add, that I never experienced any joint pain or fell sick during the 8 week program.
I believe the magic in these shorter workouts is more on the psychological side than with the exercises themselves. The fact that the workouts are shorter made it less painful to do every day, and easier to complete the entire program instead of quitting half way through in failure. I no longer dreaded working out after I got home from work. I even did the optional core workouts on the cardio days. I’ve always skipped them in other workout series. I figured I had no excuses this time since I’m still only investing a total of about 30 minutes of my time per day. Plus by week 3, I started to see my abs, which has never happened before. Abs may start in the kitchen, but they end on the mat!
The downside to the shorter workouts is that you probably have to be more honest with your nutrition to see progress. If I wasn’t as strict with my diet, I don’t think I would of have gotten as good of results.
Overall: great workout!
The workouts are not as intense as Insanity or some of the P90X and X3 workouts, but they are fun and motivating. All in all I still enjoy the Tony Horton workouts especially with a busy schedule and other workouts that I like to do. I'd like to give it a 5, but something just seems lacking - at the same time, it is very good.
