Daily Workout Tuesday 10/8
October 8th, 2013
Daily Workout Tuesday, October 8th   Running day again! And BOY do I love SPRINTS! Love/hate that is. Sprints are just about the single best HIIT workout you can do to burn fat calories. So, I KNOW that they are a necessary evil. Basically, I hate them, but I LOVE them too for how accomplished I feel when I am done with them.

Go get after these sprints today. Push super hard and rest/stretch the required time so that you can push as hard as possible on each and every sprint.

Okay, good luck on these and as always-- have a nutritious day! :) :)

Daily Workout Monday, October 7th

WATCH MY VIDEO BELOW TO SEE ME COMPLETE TODAY'S ADVANCED/INTERMEDIATE WORKOUT:



BEGINNERS PROGRAM 

Strength: 3xMax squat hold 


*This means you hold the bottom a squat position for as long as possible (just like I do in my squat hold tutorial video in the above link). Repeat twice more for a total of 3 squat holds. Rest as needed between efforts (2-3 minutes). Even if your hold is only a few seconds that is great! Just keep trying for longer and longer holds every time!

Conditioning:

On the minute, every minute, for 6 minutes total, perform:
burpees with the push ups (if you are not doing the push up in the burpees, you should do 8 burpees per round) and max high plank holds for the remainder of the minute.

To complete this workout, the first minute you do 5 burpees, then max plank holds until the start of the second minute beeps. Once the second minute beeps, perform 5 more burpees and then max plank hold for the remainder of the minute... continue like this until you've completed 6 total minutes of work.

*Post about this workout in the comments.

INTERMEDIATE PROGRAM 

Strength: 1 Set of Tabata Jumping Squats

Daily Workout Tuesday, October 1st

Welcome back all, first, I'd like to say I am sorry for posting this late today. I missed work because I am sick, so naturally I spent my morning sleeping. :)

Anyways, we have another super exciting, sprinting day!! We have tabata SPRINTS! 

If it is too cold to run or too rainy outside where you are, you can always do burpees or high knees to a chair instead. However, if you can run outside, I definitely prefer you do that because nothing beats sprints for fat loss! Good luck with which ever variation you choose and post about it to the comments below! :)
