Today's Workout

This morning's workout is brought to you by the letter "F" (Thanks, Fred!) and the number "8". The first part of the workout is similar to a previous workout with timed intervals that I posted about here. The second part of the workout is the Tar Heels Medicine Ball 200, which was a Weekend Challenge several weeks ago and that I posted about here. Except I don't have a medicine ball at home. I scoured the house and found a....{fanfare}....paint container! This little baby is only about 1/4 full and weighs in at 4.2 lbs. Has a convenient handle. I will remember the woodchops next time I need to mix paint. :) Just another way to get a good workout without any fancy equipment!

Part 1:
KB swings x 20 seconds
Active rest x 10 seconds (hold at bottom of squat)
Push ups x 20 seconds
Active rest x 10 seconds (hold at top of push up)
Repeat for a total of 8 times through

Part 2:
Big Circles - 10/10 = 20
WoodChoppers - 20
Standing Russian Twist - 20 (left + right for 1 rep)
Squat to press - 20
Medicine ball Sit ups - 20
Rocky Solo’s - 10/10 = 20
Toe Touch - 20
45 Degrees torso Twist - 20 (left + right for 1 rep)
Suitcase Crunch - 20 (left + right for 1 rep)
Diagonal Crunch - 20 (left + right for 1 rep)

I will be feeling this in my abs tomorrow!

Very creative, Abby!

I like your medicine ball workout...looks like a great finisher for the DB/Kettlebell Swing/Push-up Tabata.

I'll give it a try this Sunday morning.

Thanks!
