I decided that I didn’t want to skip my workout even tho Freddy and I had a long trip ahead of us. We had to leave our house at 8am so we got up at 6am and did this workout first. I was very happy that we took the time to do it, because it gave me an energy boost at the start of what would end up being 15 hours of straight travel. After sitting for this many hours in a car, bus, plane and train and eating really bad airplane food loaded with sugar and god knows what else, I felt some relief thanks to my early morning workout. I also managed to beat my personal best for this workout and completed it in only 13 minutes and 22 seconds.
This bodyweight workout is made up of only 3 pretty intense exercises and the only thing that you will need is your Gymboss Interval Timer.
Here is the break down:
1. Reptile Push Up – 10 reps
2. One Jump Forward and 2 back – 30 reps (the combo of one jump forward and two back counts as 1 rep)
3. Side V- crunch – 20 reps on each side
Complete this sequence 3 times as fast as you can and write down your time so that you can try to beat your own record the next time you do this workout.
Writing down your personal best is really the key to avoiding plateau. It really helps to have a goal, because suddenly it’s not just another workout, but a challenge to set your new record. Once you get into it, you will start to take your trainings very seriously and your workouts will become your hobby, and a game. I am always impressed when you guys post your numbers in the comments. It gives me a shove and I find that knowing that you guys are pushing hard motivates me to try even harder.
Enjoy your workout. We are going to be traveling in Italy for the next 2 weeks so we will be sharing our trip and workouts with you along the way.
Zuzana and Freddy.
