WORKOUT: Hell of a Race. 

There has been 3 heavier workouts this week. Therefore, Friday is a bodyweight day.

Complete the following for time:

1000m Run

50 Squats

25 Push Ups

Modifications

  • If you are new to this style of working out, then I would scale the volume. Perhaps do half: 500m Run, 25 squats, 12 Push Ups.
  • If squats do not feel comfortable, then try alternating lunges.
  • Push ups can definitely be elevate on plates, boxes, or even the wall.
  • Run can be substituted for 2K row or 500 foot farmer’s carry with dumb bells or kettle bells.
