Happy Hump Day Crew! Today we are doing a quick fix strength and cardio routine that is simple and that you can do anywhere just using your bodyweight. This is a great way to get us moving but also give us a day to let our body get some much needed rest.
You can run through this routine once or twice but don’t push yourself too hard today. We want to get our body moving and our metabolism up and running but we also want to give ourselves a break and rest up for arms on Thursday and abs on Friday!
Yes, there are burpees. You can do 2 sets of 10 burpees! Check out the video at the bottom of today’s post to see a great video on “burpees for beginners” or go for it and bust out 10 full burpees!
Day 24 exercises:
- Push Ups – 3 x 10
- Quick Fix Strength and Cardio
Speed Work: Since today is an “was” day in terms of strength training, it is a GREAT day for Speed work! Check out Monday’s post here and scroll down for the week’s speed work options.
- Road Running Surges (Beginner speed work) – Best if done on the road
- Track Ladder Workout – (Beginner or intermediate speed work) Great for the track or treadmill
- Yasso’s – (Advanced speed work – Half Or Marathon Training) Track or road preferred but can also be done on a treadmill
Burpees for Beginners: This is a great video for those of you who haven’t tried burpees or just find the really difficult. Start with one leg at a time. The box is a great addition but if you don’t have one you can use the floor.
