Workout of the Day (For Time)

This workout is all about time.  Of course as always, you need a proper warm up and some stretching and a cool down.  This is just the main portion that you do.  The object is to go for time, so as get it done as quickly as you can.  You can take a break when you are done.  The object is to start with a sprint complete 15 reps of each, followed by 12 reps, and last 9 reps, and one last sprint to the finish.  Ready?  Go!

1/4 mile sprint

15 Burpees

15 Tricep Pushups

15 Pull ups (or assisted if needed)

12 Burpees

12 Tricep Push ups

12 Pull ups

9 Burpees

9 Tricep Push ups

9 Pull ups

1/4 mile sprint

If you were totally on it, you should be able to complete this entire circuit within a 4-5 minute range.  If you don’t your first time, work your way to that goal.  Good luck!

About Food4Thought

I am no fitness expert. I am simply someone who has found joy in fitness and nutrition. I am a certified group fitness instructor. I’ve been teaching at the local health club for about 3 years now. While Zumba was my first love, I have since added Total Conditioning, Bodyworks plus Abs, and Core to my repertoire of classes. I work with a personal trainer to help me reach my fitness goals that I cannot obtain through group fitness alone. This year I ran my first 5K and plan to run my first 10K in March. To further my knowledge in the fitness realm, I have begun reading Strong Women Stay Slim, New Rules for Lifting Abs, and The Body Sculpting Bible for Women. On my list to read next is Wheat Belly. I am always looking for new ways to further my education and knowledge to better serve the members that take my group fitness classes. Lately, I have started tinkering with recipes, buying healthy cookbooks, and finding easy, tasty, and healthy foods to make. Like I mentioned earlier, I am by no means an expert, but the things I share with you have helped me tremendously with my fitness journey. It is my hope that with these easy tips and recipes, that you too can make these tiny steps and see big positive changes in your life.
