Blogging is hard work!

After about 18 months of blogging, I've decided to take a break. For those of you who like to do the workouts--I have posted 31 of them, one for each day of the month. I've tried to have a variety and I've tried to mix them up so you won't use the same muscle group repeatedly. I've also put all the videos along the left side so you can view them for correct form.

I do have some running listed. I know that the weather won't always work, but I believe that there should be some running in workout programming. Just do your best!



For Time:

100 Jumping Jacks
80 Squats
60 Walking Lunges (30 each side)
40 Sit Ups
20 Push Ups


3x20 burpees

Do 3 sets of 20 burpees. Try very hard not to rest at all during each set. Go hard and fast on the burpees. Rest exactly 2 minutes between sets.


20 sit ups per minute for 10 minutes

This will be a total of 200 sit ups in 10 minutes.


3 Rounds for Time:

100 Jumping Jacks
25 Dumbbell Thrusters
25 Dumbbell Walking Lunge (25 total, not each leg)

Use the same dumbbells for thrusters and lunges.



Front plank
Right plank
Left plank

Accumulate 2 minutes each

Rest about 5 minutes, then:

3x25 squats

Do 25 squats, trying very hard to do them without resting between reps. Rest for exactly 2 minutes then repeat. Rest another 2 minutes and repeat.


For Time:

Run 5 minutes (2 1/2 minutes away from home, 2 1/2 minutes back)
then immediately--
50 squats
30 push ups
