It’s Day 2 or the 30 Day Challenge- my personal challenge is to commit to 3 runs per week and 3 hard core interval workouts to build strength in my body and mind. I am also dedicating the next 30 days to cleaning up my diet. Bye bye Christmas! Today’s workout was not pretty. I decided to take a photo after to see just how red my face got. Sweat pouring, legs burning, lungs aching… BRING IT ON!
10 Squat Jumps
10 Mountain Climbers (on each leg)
10 Lunges Jumps (5 on each leg)
10 Jump in/outs in Push-up pose (I jumped in to my left hand, then back out, then in to center, then out, then to my right hand for 3 reps, repeated to 10)
**Remember that you can modify any of the exercises to make it non-impact. For example, do squats instead of squat jumps. Also, decrease the reps if you are new to exercise. Start with 5 of each for time, and take extra rest.
All for time: 1:37, 1:34, 1:37. I started each interval at the 2:15 mark (about 40 sec rest)
12 Dead Lift + Shoulder Press (with Barbell)
12 Cable Rows
12 Push-up + Dumbbell Row
12 Triceps Dips (feet up)
Repeat Cardio intervals: 1:36, 1:31, 1:34
12 Cable Rotations (left/ right)
12 Triceps Push-ups
12 Double Leg Raises
12 Knee to Elbow in Push-up Pose (I need a sexier name for this one too….)
This workout kicked my ass!
I hope you enjoy it too 🙂
