Yowsas!

I just finished this workout. It was so great that I want to puke my guts out.

Sounds fun, right?

Well, it flies by. And it kicked my booty.

Do it.


Treadmill Circuit Blast

5 minute warm up

1 minute at 8.0

1 minute at 4.0

REPEAT ONCE

20 lunges

20 pushups

20 squats

20 overhead presses

1 minute at 8.0

1 minute at 4.0

REPEAT ONCE

10 burpees

20 side lunges

10 plyo pushups

1 minute plank

1 minute at 8.0

1 minute at 4.0

REPEAT ONCE

20 plie squats

10 squats jumps

15 triceps dips

1 minute bicycle crunches

1 minute at 8.0

1 minute at 4.0

5 minute cool down


Notes: 1.) Even though I started in on the sprints right after the lifting bursts, it still took a few seconds to up the speed, which was a nice way to catch my breath. 2.) You don’t need a treadmill to do this workout, you can do any form of cardio and alternate one intense minute with one recovery minute.

    I love it, My new summer workout at home is combined with some bar method workout(ballet,pilates,yoga) and a 3 mile walk with my doggies, it’s the best and feels fun and effortless, well almost!
    Thank you for the inspiration!

    Holy crap that sounds intense. I love those kind of work outs though because you never have time to get bored which makes it waaaay better.

    Wow, this sounds intense. Would plyo moves work?

    Love these ideas! My schedule might be pretty wacko once I start working so I might need to utalize these!

    Oh my gosh I wanted to puke yesterday after my workout too. The combination of cramping at the beginning of my running, the hot weather, and sprinting at the end of my run made more an unhappy stomach and dizziness! ooopss!
