Weekly Workout 4/13/2020

Circuit 1:   3-4 sets - 30 sec rest between sets

 

1)      Stationary forward and reverse lunges for 45 seconds each leg

-          Bring one foot forward and lunge down then bring that forward foot back behind you and lunge. Repeat this sequence for one side until time expires and switch sides. As an example keep your left foot on the ground and lunge forward with your right foot and then transition into a reverse lunge by bringing that right foot behind you into a lunge position.

 

2)      High knee jog in place for 30 seconds

-          Place your hands out, palms down, as if you’re resting your hands on a table and bring one knee up to hit the palm of your hand. At a safe yet challenging speed rapidly alternate the marching motions of this exercise so that you get in as my knee-to-palm taps as possible in the 30 seconds.

 

3)      Push up clocks (12, 3, 6, 9 o’clock) clock wise AND counter clock wise

-          Imagine you are the hour hand of a clock on the floor. Complete a push up at the 12 o’clock position then move your body into the 3 o’clock position without moving your feet and repeat a push up. Complete one round clockwise AND counter-clockwise. This may be completed in your knees.

 

4)      Superman hold with snow angels for 30 seconds

-          Laying on your stomach, hold your chest up off the ground with both legs still in contact with the floor and use your arms to create a “snow angel.”

-          Alternative: If this bothers your lower back do not lift your chest off the floor. Keeping your torso on the floor have your arms straight placed out in front of you so that you create the letter “Y”. Staying in the “Y” position lift those arms off the floor as high as you can and repeat these for 30 seconds.

 

Circuit 2:   6 sets: 0-10 sec rest between sets

 

1)      Squat to press with weights/objects for 20 seconds

-          The weight(s) can be any household object(s) of moderate weight. Not too light!

 

2)      High plank jacks for 20 seconds

-          In a high plank position perform jumping jacks with your legs.

 

3)      Plank ups for 20 seconds

-          Start in a plank and using only your arms raise yourself into a high plank position. Return back to a plank position again using only your arms. You may do these on your knees.

 

4)      Burpees for 5 repetitions

 

Dead hang OR Waiter holds (**TO BE PERFORMED AT THE LAST SET OF CIRCUIT 2 ONLY**)

  1. Dead hang: If you have a bar or any surface you are able to hang from using your hands you will perform a dead hang for as long as you can.
  2. Waiter holds: If you have no method of performing a dead hang then you will perform waiter holds. Place a moderately heavy object of the same weight in each hand palms up. You will hold your arms up as if you’re doing half a bicep curl. Hold you’re arms in this position for as long as you can. You have the option of holding one large item with both hands versus handling items separately.

Weekly workout 4/27

Warm up thoroughly before beginning this workout.

Circuit 1: 50 sec work, 10 sec rest (repeat 3x)

  1. Squat pulses (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4fzbBv4BFI)
  2. Plank drag (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T6RGyIzZ6M8)

-Squat down into a comfortable stance and stand up slightly, but not all the way. Continue pulsing in your squat until time is up.

 

-In a high plank position, place a weight or an object to your right side. Reach your left arm through to grab the weight and drag it to the other side. Repeat with your right hand. Do not let your hips rotate while performing this exercise. Perform this from your knees if necessary.

 

  1. Offset reverse lunge (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZsmsBmOMtnw)
  2. Bear crawl shoulder taps (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vdfkip64R1o)

-Holding a moderately heavy weight or object in one hand, perform a lunge on the opposite leg. For example, if you are holding a weight in your left hand, step your left foot back into a lunge so your right leg is the working leg. Do not let the weight pull you over to the side. Step your foot forward again and repeat until halfway through the 50 seconds, then switch sides.

 

-Position yourself on hands and knees and then lift your knees slightly so they are hovering above the ground, which is known as the bear crawl position. Keep your hands in line with your shoulders and your knees in line with your hips. Take one hand off the ground at a time and tap your opposite shoulder. Alternate hands and try to prevent your hips from rotating. Perform this in a regular plank or in a plank on your knees if necessary.

Circuit 2: 50 sec work, 10 sec rest (repeat 3x)

  1. Renegade row (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VvZQZZwHwsY)
  2. Pushup with rotation (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qHQ_E-f5278)

-Hold a high plank position with your hands on dumbbells or other weighted objects. One at a time, perform a row by lifting the weight off the ground and pulling your elbow back as seen in the video. Do not let your hips rotate. Complete this exercise from your knees if necessary.

 

-Perform a pushup, from your knees or using an incline if necessary. Between each rep, lift one hand off of the ground and rotate to the side so your hand is up in the air. Return to the start position, complete another pushup, and then rotate to the other side.

 

  1. Dying bug (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4XLEnwUr1d8)
  2. Commandos (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WhS4bHJWCac)

-Lying on your back, raise your arms straight up into the air and raise your legs so that your hips and knees are bent at a 90 degree angle. Flatten your lower back into the ground and maintain this position throughout the exercise. Reach your right arm up above your head and straighten your left leg out in front of you as far as you can while maintaining a flat back, then return to the starting position. Repeat with your left arm and right leg. If this is too difficult, only straighten your leg and leave your arms where they are. Continue alternating sides.

 

-Starting in a forearm plank, use your arms to transition into a high plank. Lower to your forearms again and repeat starting with your other arms. Continue alternating arms throughout the movement as you transition from a low to a high plank. Keep your movements slow and controlled and do not let your hips rotate. Perform this from your knees if necessary.

Weekly Workout 8/10/2020

Weekly Workout: This week’s workout will have an upper body focus - refer back to any of the previous lower body workouts and supplement them however you like. You can perform an upper body workout on one day of the week and a lower body workout on another day, or you can mix and match to create a custom full body workout. There are no strict rules here!

1A) 3 position push-up ISO: 3x3 reps

  • Pause for 3 seconds in the bottom position, 3 seconds in the middle position, and 3 seconds in the top position. This is 1 rep. 3 reps is 1 set. Focus on staying tight and making sure the hips and shoulders are in a straight line.
  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXE3nbL-ae0

1B) Plyo-Push Up: 3x5

1C) Band Pull Apart: 3x15

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=okRUV0bdXAU
  • We are going to perform 3 variations of a push up.
  • The first variation, we will be using a narrow grip. Perform as many reps as you can while maintaining strict form. Rest for 10-15 seconds, then perform as many as you can utilizing a wide grip push up. Rest for another 10-15 seconds, then perform as many reps as you can utilizing a normal grip (between narrow/wide). This is 1 set. Perform this up to 3 times.
  • These are tough! Be smart here, and don’t push beyond your capacity. Feel free to use an elevated surface and keep a couple reps in the tank on the first variation. Record the total number of reps.

2A) Push up mechanical drop set: 3 x AMRAP!

2B) Band Pull Down: 3x8-15reps

  • Depending on the tension of the band you will be using, adjust the rep ranges. Incorporate slower reps and holds at the beginning and end of each rep to stress the muscles under tension.
  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=evXOlgLTPCw
  • You may remember these from previous workout. Bent over reverse flies are a great way to target the muscles behind your shoulder and combat all the time we spent slouched over at our computers!
  • Note that this rep scheme will utilize a 2 second pause at the top of each rep, so dial in your form here! Any household items can be used to provide resistance here.

2C) Bent over reverse fly: 3x15 reps w/2 second pause.

Optional Conditioning: Perform as many rounds as you can in 5 minutes!

1a) Base rotations: 10 each way https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=92Syn9ViMYU

1b) Lateral Lunge: 10 reps (5 each side)

1c) Curl to press: 10 reps https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zdQOmPMGjOY

Weekly Workout 8/24/2020

15 min EMOM

Every Minute On the Minute – Perform the designated reps in a minute time span. If you finish all reps before the minute is complete you have the remaining amount of time to rest before starting the next exercise.

Ex.) You complete 25 squats in 40 seconds. You now have 20 seconds of rest before the next minute mark where you will now start completing 30 pushups.

 

Order of exercises:

**Set a timer/stopwatch to follow each exercise after every minute until you hit 15:00**

IF you do not complete the designated reps before the next minute, move onto the next exercise and when you approach that exercise again reduce the rep count by 3-5.

 

-          Body weight squats x 15 reps

-          Jump rope or Hops x 30 reps

-          Push ups x 12-15 reps

-          Hands to toes (laying on your back, leg up to the sky) x15 reps

-          Side bends (laying on your back) x12 reps each side

Weekly Workout

Weekly Workout: Rest times can range anywhere from 15 seconds to 60-90 seconds depending on what is most comfortable for you. Focus on decreasing rest times between sets as a form of progression as you get more comfortable with the feel of the circuit. 30 seconds is the prescribed work time. Try to choose a pace that you can perform at for the duration of the time. If 30 seconds is too tough, lower to a time that is appropriate for you. As long as you are building up a sweat and being challenged at a 7/10 intensity, the specifics aren’t that important
