Grab a friend, significant other, or family member and do this workout together! (Don’t worry there are no uphill sprints in this workout – however those are really good for you! :))
This picture is from a few months ago when my boyfriend and I went on a hike on Mt. Tam and came across this rock amphitheater in the hills! It was so random haha. Of course he challenged me to 6 sprints – from the fence (you can see it in the background) up all the steps to the top. Unexpected intervals added into our hike!
Anyways here is a workout for you and your partner to do! Enjoy!
PARTNER WORKOUT – One person does exercise A for 1 minute while your partner does exercise B for 1 minute; then switch. Do each set 3x before moving on to the next partner set.
SET 1: A) Wide/Narrow Push Ups (Alternate 2 w/ wide hand stance, then 2 w/ narrow hand stance); B) Jump Rope (or “invisible jump rope” if you don’t have one – move arms as if you did)
SET 2: A) Speed Skaters (click here for how-to video); B) Forward Walking Lunges (make sure front knee does not go past your front toe – safety first!)
SET 3: A) Single Leg Squats (stand on one leg, decelerate SLOWLY until your butt touches a bench, couch, chair etc the stand back upright, switch leg every 3 reps); B) Four Square Jumps (keeping your feet together, jump forwards, right, backwards, left – like you are making a little box)
If you have time, finish with a two-mile walk or run with your partner!
Nobody to join you today? You can also do it by yourself! 🙂
Hey everybody! Here’s another workout that you can do no matter where you are! Whether you are on a business trip and only have a hotel room; a busy parent at home; in a park with your kids; or just need an at home workout after a long day at work, try this!
The Do Anywhere Workout #2
Set some sort of interval timer for 45sec work/15sec rest* and do the 6 moves below for 3-5 rounds! (There are a ton of free interval timer apps you can use! Or just watch a clock)
Box Jumps – Use any chair, step, bench, etc. (Knee issues? Just do box step ups!)
Plank Toe Taps – (Plank on your elbows, tap your right toe out to the side and back, then your left toe, continue alternating. Easier? Plank with your hands elevated on a couch or bench)
Sumo Squats – (Squat with a wide stance and your toes pointed out)
Push Ups – (Need easier? Elevate your upper body by putting your hands on a couch or bench; want harder? Elevate your feet!)
Jumping Jacks – (Harder? Do the jumping jacks with your legs bent at 90 degrees – like you are doing a jumping jack in a squat)
Walking Forward Lunges – (Harder? Hold something heavy at your chest/or in each hand)
* Want to make the entire workout harder? Set your timer for 50sec/10sec intervals. Want to make it easier? Set your intervals at 40sec/20sec 🙂
