It’s the weekend and I could not be more excited. It was a long week, but we made it!
How was your week in fitness? Here’s how mine went.
Sunday: 3 mile race for the cure with my mama
Monday: rest day
Tuesday: easy 2.3 mile run with Joe
Wednesday: morning pump it
Thursday: 25 minutes walk/rest day
Friday: morning pump it
Saturday: new 100 workout + walk ~ about to happen
Sunday: hoping to get a long run in ~ 5-6 miles
Well today I’ve got a brand-spanking-new 100 workout v. 2 to share!
Here’s what I love about this 100 workout~
- quick workout
- fun variety with the changing reps
- cool concept for a workout
- gets me to sweat right away
- no equipment is necessary
- did I mention fun?
Have you ever tried the 100 workout? Do it!
High knees – knees meet hands in front of you ~ each time both legs go up it’s 1 rep
Skater lunges – check out this video to see how slow skaters are done
Jumping jacks – everyone knows a jumping jack ~ go as fast + powerful as you can
Plié squat – wider legs with knees pointing to corners ~ make sure your knees track in the same direction as your toes during the squats
Thread the needle – start in a side plank on hand and feet with 1 arm going straight up into the air ~ thread that hand though the space between the ground and your body (pictured above)
Tackle hops – check out the sweat worthy weekend workout for a breakdown
Spiderman pushups – regular pushup, but with each rep bring a knee to your elbow, alternating sides
Straight leg lifts – begin seated leaning slightly back, hands on the ground ~ bring your straight legs up in front of you, then back down
Single leg squat – check out the sweat worthy weekend workout for a breakdown
Diamond push ups – check out the sweat worthy weekend workout for a breakdown
Notes: Make sure to include 5 minutes of dynamic warming up – don’t just jump into the workout. Cool down + stretch after.
Okay, I’m off to do this quick workout – I’ll make sure to report back how long it took me. Any guesses? I’m thinking less than 25 minutes. We shall see!
UPDATE: Took me 16 minutes and 5 seconds… ummm my obliques are going to be sore, I’m sure of it!
Have you ever done a 100 workout before? What was your week in fitness like?
