We are slowly shaking off the holidays and getting back on track. I am still taking it easy and enjoying this time before New Years. I have stopped eating all of the holiday treats and things are starting to get back to normal at our house. It seems that the weather here has changed – I almost want to believe that the winter is over after just a few weeks. Today felt like June in Canada and I hope it will continue, because we are really enjoying going out to do our workouts. I don’t know why, but I noticed that working out outside like this is harder. There are distractions that I am not used to like strong wind, all kinds of noises, insects, and all of that has an impact on my workout. I didn’t push as much today, so you guys shouldn’t have a hard time to beat me in this one at all. I still had a great workout, plus I did some hiking just to get to the location up on that hill. I am already eager to beat my personal best in the 500 rep workout the next time. I will look at your old comments from that post to see what were your personal bests, so that I have a goal. This is something that I find interesting. If you have a time goal that you are trying to beat, you always push harder which results in much better workout.
I just wanted to let everyone know that we are working on the site – there are some changes on the home page and we have added our twitter feed, recent comments and some other changes. You can also reply to individual comments now, which is something new and I think it will make our conversations easier.
This workout takes exactly 15 minutes so you will need a watch or a timer that will do the count down for you. I am using my
Gymboss Interval Timer.
One round looks like this and your goal is to complete as many rounds as you can:
1. Jump Lunges – 10 reps
2. One Arm Push Ups – 2 reps on each arm
3. Half Burpees – 10 reps
4. One Arm Push Ups – 2 reps on each arm
