So my “rest” days (which are usually on Sundays) have turned into “work even harder than you do every other day of the week” days. Last Sunday was no different. I thought Dean and I would maybe just go for a run since I don’t do long distances during the week (and hello, Tough Mudder is coming and I need to get my distances back up so I don’t die). Instead, we gathered our Lebert Equalizers and battle ropes and headed to a nearby track so we could combine running with some functional training.
We started with a warm up mile around the track and then started our circuit. For our first exercise we made good use of the picnic tables on the field for box jumps:
Then we sprinted to the end of the field and back, got down and did pushups using the Lebert Equalizers:
After another quick sprint we used the Equalizers again for pull ups:
Instead of sprinting after our pull ups we did one full lap around the track and then hit the battle ropes for 30 seconds:
We repeated this circuit four times and then cooled down with another mile around the track.
This workout (with the exception of the ropes) could totally be done without equipment. We could have easily used the picnic table to do bench push ups or could even have done regular pushups on the ground. The end of the picnic table could also have been used for pull ups. See? No excuses! You can take your workouts anywhere!
So no, I didn’t get my long run in but this workout kicked my trash and I loved every second of it.
What is your workout today?
If you had to choose between running, biking, the elliptical, or the stairmill, which would it be?
