Workout of the Week

I don’t have a new exercise for you today, so I’m going to give you two exercises this week instead of just one.  Today’s workout is a timed workout.  You won’t need any equipment other than a stopwatch.  Here are your three exercises:

  1. Squat Jump
  2. Pushup
  3. Plank Hold

Here’s what you’re going to do.  Set your timer or stopwatch to 20 minutes.  First you’re doing squat jumps.  I want you to do as many as you can until you feel yourself either slow down or not jump as high.  Then I want you to move right into pushups.  Same thing here.  Go from your knees or feet, it doesn’t matter to me.  Do as many reps as you can until you can’t do anymore.  Last, go right into your plank hold.  As soon as you’re done with pushups, start your plank, and hold as long as you can with only your forearms and feet on the ground.

Do as many reps as you can and hold as long as you can EACH time you go through the circuit.  The goal isn’t to get as many circuits in as you can, but to do as many reps as you can each time.  Rest only when you absolutely must.



Shaking My Head

There is no doubt that this guy is a better runner than I am.  In fact, he would probably leave me in the dust in just about any running event.  But, I didn’t do this.  Hahaha.  Too funny not to share.  Happy Thursday!!

Hump Day Motivation

Hey, sometimes we can learn something even from a little mouse.  If you want something bad enough, figure out a way to get it.  Don’t give up just because of a few obstacles.  You can do it.  Once you truly believe that, the rest is easy!!

Workout of the Week

No video for you, but that won’t be an issue.  This week’s workout is pretty simple.  There are only two exercises – Squats and Pushups.  I want you to pay attention to the format though.  Here it is.

Start with 24 Pushups, then do 24 squats.  Then drop down to 23 pushups and 23 squats.  Keep this pattern (dropping 1 rep each set) until you get all the way down to zero.

The final tally for each exercise will be 300 reps.  300 Pushups!!! 300 squats!!!

Take a break whenever you need to, but remember, finish all reps!!!!



Exercise of the Week


This week I’ve got a new core exercise for you, called the Scorpion.  Once you watch the video you’ll understand why it’s called that.  Start by assuming the pushup position.  Bring your leg over the top of your back and touch down on the opposite part of your body. The goal here is to touch your leg as high as you can on the opposite side.  The higher you leg is, the more you will activate and stretch your core muscles.  For this exercise, keep the pace slow.  The slower you go here, the better.
