What is 22 Minute Hard Corps?
22 Minute Hard Corps was inspired by military-style workouts and is designed to get you max results in 22 minutes. For 8-weeks you’ll use eight routines that alternate between total-body cardio and resistance workouts. You do one a day, six days a week. All of the moves we’ve seen from this intense workout are full body as well – each day you’ll be pushed to your limits!
Everyone in the video is also veterans.
The workout is set up as a boot camp class. The moves are easy to learn, but they require maximum effort for those 22 minutes. Veterans have compared it to their daily PT.

Our 22 Minute Hard Corps Workout Review
We tried the workouts, and love that it’s something you can do almost anywhere!
It was cardio intense, but it did use my body weight as resistance. The warm-up and cool down are very short to non-existent, but I had no problems with that or the moves.
The moves included a set certain amount of reps for each exercise:
- Bear Crawls
- Lateral Shuffle
- Forward Lunge Twist
- Basic Burpee
- Run Lunge Squats
Repeat 3x – Varying the Number of Reps Each Round
Equipment Needed for 22 Minute Hard Corps
You’ll need dumbbells and either a pull-up bar or a resistance band with a door attachment. In addition, you may want a jump mat or a sandbag. I used a medicine ball.
Who is Tony Horton? Does he really know what he’s doing?
Tony Horton created P90X, P90x2, and P90X3 and is a leader in the home-fitness industry. He has also included military-style workouts and moves within P90X3 in the “Warrior” workout and toured dozens of military sites in the past and currently still does. We have been so honored to meet him on several occasions through Beachbody coaching.
We absolutely love him and his workouts. He has always done a great job of blending cardio, agility, strength and core strength with flexibility in his workouts, and we know this one will be just as strong.
Should I do Shakeology or the Performance Challenge Pack?
There is no bad choice. If you are needing a quick healthy breakfast or lunch, I would suggest the Shakeology pack.
If you are a meal-prep wonder and want to have MAX energy and reduce muscle soreness (while still growing muscle) I would do the Performance pack.
