Super sweat sucker punchPosted: April 17, 2012
New home workout!
I did a workout with running in it, the Hunger Games one, and decided after my CrossFit workout this weekend that I needed to do some additional workouts that incorporated short bursts of running like that one did. So here we are! Whoo! Also, they are really great to do in the morning to wake your butt up, if you are like me and snooze for two hours. Hi Dad! Yes, things haven’t changed! Except now I just pretend to myself that I’m waking up. ANYWAY.
That’s also why I look like undercooked meat in these pictures, and this weekend’s impromptu cookout with friends introduced me to a lot of that. (We got it all cooked, not to worry)
Honestly if I did this home workout again, I would up the reps of the ab stuff (so everything but the pushups) – although I didn’t really have the time to do more. Up to you!
4 rounds! Time challenge!
So – run a block and back (My house is next to the end of the block, so I ran down to the other end and back. Probably a around 150 meters? I’m bad at guessing distances.)
10 90 degree abs
5 Side plank crunches on right, 5 side plank crunches on left
10 plank knee to shoulders (5 on each side)
Go as fast as you can without eating it on damp pavement if your situation is anything like mine was… be careful! (No photo for this part)
10 90 degree abs
Here I am showing it with or without equipment. Put your legs at a 90 degree angle, and with weight or not reach over the tops of your knees to object or an imaginary one. If they aren’t challenging without weight, do V-ups (Lift your upper body and lower body up and reach up at the same time).
5 Side plank crunches on each side (10 total)
In side plank, with you underneath leg’s foot towards the back (so you can then lift it up without losing balance), lift your bottom leg up as you bring your arm in to touch knee to elbow. Do this 5 times in the plank on one leg. Then switch sides and do it five more times.
10 plank knee to shoulder.
Now do it three more times!
