I hope you all had a merry Christmas. I’m not sure how everyone else feels, but I ate enough food to last me an entire week. I love food and after crushing all the food I did today it was time for a quick workout. Lets be honest, most gyms are closed on Christmas and most of everyone reading this probably agrees that I’m crazy to be working out on Christmas day. Anyways, I figured a quick post with a few pictures of my workout might spark a little motivation to make you all feel good. If the workout pictures don’t motivate you then I hope the tasty green smoothie will.
I love to surge train because it takes very little time out of your day to get a great burn. Push yourself for 80% of your max intensity for 20 seconds followed by a 20 second break then another 20 seconds on, 20 seconds break, then again, 20 seconds on, followed by a 2 minute break. A few exercises that I like are moutain climbers, pushups, squat and punch.
No gym, no gym clothes, dosen’t matter……surge time!
1st set: Mountain Climbers: alternating legs, drive your knees toward your head for 20 sec, 80% of your max intensity. Wow! I can feel my heart and breathing rate rise
20 second breakAlternate your legs right, left.
2nd set: Pushups, 20 sec @ 80% of your max intensity.
20 second break3rd set: Squat and Punch, 20 sec @ 80% of max intensity.
Alternate arms with punches and stay low. Put your weight on the back of your feet (heel)
2 minute breakIMPORTANT ! Repeat this 2 more times!!
