WOD 5/22

Happy Friday! “JT” is a hero WOD originally programmed as 21-15-9 of handstand push-ups, ring dips, and push-ups. It is a sneakily taxing one - especially on those triceps!

WOD 5/21

Tabata Thursday! :20 seconds of work, followed by :10 seconds of rest for 8 rounds or 4 minutes total on each exercise. Tabata timers are readily available for free - so I suggest downloading one to help keep you on track for this! It’s SO much easier than constantly monitoring your watch and remembering what round you’re on.

WOD 5/15

Happy Friday! Hope you all have had a great week. 

I originally did this workout as a partner workout with my hubby - alternating full rounds. So you can enlist a friend / significant other to workout with you, or just take a minute or two rest between rounds.

WOD 5/13

This one got spicy real fast with the weight that I was using! All of these movements should be done in the minute - repeat each complete cycle every minute. Ex - I finished the press and curls with about 20-25 seconds to monster walk each minute. Adjust the rep scheme if necessary so that you’re getting at least 20 seconds of monster walking in each round. I left the resistance band for the monster walks on the whole time that I was working, so that I didn’t need to bother with adjusting the positioning of the band each minute.

WOD 5/12

4 Rounds today, targeting a full body workout. Start with some cardio - walk, bike, row, run (if it’s still comfortable and you’re not experiencing heaviness at your lower abs or pelvic floor!) and aim for about 2-3 minutes of cardio work.

WOD 5/11

Let’s get this week started with a nice little back-to-back couplet of work. I still only have a relatively light kettlebell to play with at home (though we decided to splurge and order some home gym equipment - including a barbell! Not that I can really use it currently...but it’s exciting to think about getting back to it!) so this was a pretty fast workout for me (just over 6 minutes in total for both parts). You can definitely make it longer if you need more of a challenge, by upping the weights / using a barbell / increasing the reps / adding some cardio in betweeen the rounds etc.
