Branch out

Before we jump into this, I'd like to begin with a disclaimer.  The point of this post, is NOT to promote any one method/discipline of exercise.  In fact, it's quite the opposite. We want people to experiment with exercise, try a spin class, try Crossfit, yoga, Pure Barre, because that is the only way you'll find something that you have the good chance of sticking with. Why? Because we tend to gravitate towards things we are good at (for the most part).

I Get Bored Easily

Marathon runners put in hundreds of miles leading up to one race.  Competitive weightlifters train about 6 total exercises for years to perfect their movements.  Professional athletes perform speed and agility drills their entire careers.   So it makes me cringe a little when I hear a client say they don't workout because they get bored easily.  What this statement actually tells me is that this individual is focusing on the wrong thing.

Weekend Workout

Get your weekend started off proper with this quick, 10-15 minute workout.  The main goal here is speed, with that being said, do not sacrifice proper form for quickness.  Try your best to hit the rep counts unbroken, and to complete a full round without resting.  If rest is required, do so between rounds. There will be an "(A)dvanced" option offered for each exercise, if you've been on a regular workout program, give some of the Advanced versions a try.  Remember, your goal is speed. If you get through two rounds of trying the harder version and can no longer complete the rep counts unbroken, scale down to the regular option. SPEED! SPEED! SPEED!

5 Rounds:

- 20 Pushups | (A) Plyo/clapping pushups

- 20 Situps | (A) V-Ups

- 20 Step-back lunges(total) | (A) Plyo/Jumping Alternating Lunges (total)

Mindfulness

For this week's Do Work At Work Wednesday, we want to take a break from the physical challenges, and focus more on the mental side. This is often overlooked, but has a HUGE impact on many areas of our life. Being mindful, or present, applies directly to our work, our relationships, our lifestyle choices and our journey to live a healthy and fit life.

We can talk all day about making goals that are measurable, attainable, timely and all that noise. But you’re no dummy; you already know this. Instead, this is your 5 step plan to turning your goal in to a reality.

Start with 2 min of burpees, counting reps,

Then immediately move on to the following 4 exercises, working at max effort.  Transition quickly because there's no rest between exercises.

Repeat these 4 exercises x2, advanced Repeat x3

Finish with Burpees, picking up where you left off counting after the first 2 min and working until you hit 50 reps total.
