Workout of the Week

I’ve got a cardio workout for you this week.  It’s a pretty simple workout, but one that will nonetheless require a lot of effort.

3-5 minute light jog to warmup.  Followed by:

Your work:rest ratio this week is 1:1, and your time period is 1 minute.  That means you’re going to run for 1 minute, then rest/walk for one minute.  It’s about as simple as it gets.  I want the speed on the run to be as fast as you can maintain for a minute.  The walking speed can be pretty slow in order to recover.  I want 15 sets, which will take you 30 minutes to complete.

3-5 minute light jog to cool down.

This is a very simple and straightforward workout.  But, that doesn’t mean you get to slack off.



Workout of the Week

This week I’ve got another cardio workout for you.  It will take you about 40 minutes or so to complete, but it is a good workout.  Here is your workout:

Each set you’re running for 30 seconds, then resting for 30 seconds.

Set 1

Start at no incline.  Run for 30 seconds.  Rest for 30 seconds while raising your incline to 2.5.  Run for 30 again.  Rest for 30.  Continue this cycle, raising the incline 2.5% with each interval until you reach 10%, keeping the speed the same on each interval.  Once you’ve completed 10%, work your way back to flat ground.  Only this time, increase your speed with each set.  Your set will look like this on the incline:

0 – 2.5 – 5 – 7.5 – 10 – 7.5 – 5 – 2.5 – 0 — Remember, keep the speed the same on the way up, but increase on the way down.  Rest two minutes

Set 2

Start at no incline, work your way to 7.5 on the incline and then back down.  Increase speed on the way down.  Rest two minutes

Set 3

Start with no incline, work your way to 5 incline and then back down.  Rest two minutes

Set 4

Start at no incline, go to 2.5 and then back down.  All three of these intervals should be at a very high speed.


Push yourself on each set.  Try to increase you starting speed with each set, as you won’t be going as high.



Workout of the Week

Grab a stopwatch and a set of dumbbells for this workout.  The weight should be heavy, but not so much that you can’t get through a 20-25 minute workout with them.  You’ve got 4 exercises.  Here they are:

DB Squat and Press

DB Alternating Renegade Row

DB Alternating Front Lunge

DB Burpee and Press

Complete each exercise for 1 minute, then go right into the next one.  After the last, rest for about a minute, then go right back to the top exercise.  Complete 5 rounds.  It should take around 25 minutes for 5 full rounds.



Workout of the Week

You’ve only got three exercises this week, but you’ve got a high number of reps for each exercise.  No weights needed, just you and a little bit of space.  Here we go…

Burpees – 100

Leg Lifts – 150

Squats – 200

You can break these exercises down into however many reps and sets you wish.  You can do all reps at once or make them into a circuit.  It does not matter to me – just get them done!!
