WOW 5-5-14

Spahtens!

After completing the joint mobility routine, set your interval timer for 16 rounds of 20 seconds of work 10 seconds of rest. Proceed to do the 1st couplet. You will alternate between each exercise doing the first then the second until you have done each one 8 times for a total of 16 sets. Make sure you really bring the intensity on these. Maintain good form but get your reps in! 20 seconds is not long so you really have to move in order to get in some decent reps. Make sure you get at least 6 reps minimum of each movement for each round! BRING IT! 
* Alternate sides each set for the side crunch (4 per side total).

1)

Wide Push Up

Jumping Jacks

 

2)

Stickups

Air Squats

 

3)

Side Crunch

Burpee

 

After completing this WOW hit the road or even better, the trail and do a 20-30 minute jog.

Print the worksheet , fill in the following movements and get ready to rock this wow!

  1. Air Squats

  3. Split Jumps

Finish out this WOW with 2-3 miles of trail running (Ok ok, you can use the road.  IF YOU MUST)!
