Fun and Hardcore Workout – 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!
