This past weekend I spent some time at home and got to spend some quality time with both family and friends. One thing that always happens is my mom and I workout together. Either we'll go to the gym together or I'll show her one of my most recent favorite workouts that I'm doing.
This this time we decided to do something different. We made up our own workout. My mom picked a move, I picked a move and so on until we had 6 moves listed. We decided 4 rounds of 45 seconds of work and 15 seconds of rest would be a pretty good workout.
Boy, were we wrong.
It was tough, we were sweaty... and if I recall, I think I was the first one to complain!
So, today I wanted to share the workout with you. But before I tell you about the workout, I'm going to share the timer that we used. It's something I discovered recently and think is pretty cool for days when you want more of a timed workout. All you do is put the number of moves you're going to do, how long you want to work and rest for, and how many rounds you're going to complete.
Here's what we did for our workout:
45 seconds on, 15 seconds of rest:
> Cross Jacks
> Sumo Hop (you do a sumo squat as shown in the video with a hop at the top)
> Butterfly (in addition to what is demonstrated, grab a pair of light dumbbells and hold your arms straight in front of you and as you drop your legs, drop your arms to the side, then bring everything back up at once)
> Crouching Push-Up
