Fun and Hardcore Workout – My Workout Today

My-Workout-Today

Here’s my workout for the day and I got it done this morning! This was a push-up HEAVY workout. I went into it planning to do 5 rounds which includes a total of 300 push-ups. I’ll explain what I ended up doing in the workout recap.

Workout Recap

Round One
Inchworm pushup combo from my toes, knee pushups for the rest of the round
Round Two
All push-ups from my knees
Round Three
Only did one push-up for every inchworm. All push-ups from my knees.
Round Four
Back up to 3 push-ups per inchworm. All push-ups from my knees.

I decided to keep it at 4 rounds, because my push-up form was suffering (AKA looking like a flopping seal). I completed the 4 rounds in 39:13.2.

Fun and Hardcore workout

I finished up the workout with 50 bonus squat pulses with my 40 lb sandbag.

I have a really hard time crying uncle during a workout and yet I needed to do that today. I still got an amazing workout and completed 240 push-ups.

And the burpee roll back + tuck…FUN!

Time to Kick Your Butt Workout – Rep Challenge

Time-to-Kick-Your-Butt-Rep-Challenge-Workout

Here’s the workout that I completed after Let’s Get Dirty Workout.

Workout Recap

I completed this as a 7 minute AMRAP (as many reps as possible) because I needed to go pick up the boys from school. It’s a perfect workout for an AMRAP and I pushed myself.

I got through 2 full rounds + the sandbag swings, squat & press and 13 jump squats in round 3. I used my 40 lb. sandbag.

Sweat Like Crazy Workout – Rep Challenge

Free-Workout-of-the-Day-AHS
Here’s the workout that I did on Friday. It’s a rep challenge and I loved it!

Workout Recap

I completed 5 rounds in 24:52.5.

  1. 4:55.9
  2. 4:51.9
  3. 5:02.4
  4. 5:03.8
  5. 4:55.8

I changed the last exercise to knee drive followed by a reptile (still with one foot on the ball). I don’t have the flexibility or the strength (not sure which) to do the side kick. My push back push-ups were from my knees. I left out the tuck on the 180 touch downs until round 3, 4, and 5.
