Today's Coffee Talk
Today's workout is the one and only REP Challenge!! We're going to be sculpting and toning your entire body with this fast-paced workout! Push as hard as you can! Note the amount of time it takes you to complete the workout so that at a later date you can try to improve!
Who doesn't love a good challenge right?! I don't know about you, but no matter what I get myself involved in, I like to see improvement! Today's style of workout lends itself beautifully to something you can benchmark and then redo at a later date to try and improve. Rep challenges are AWESOME for this reason. Pay attention to the weights you're using today - make a note of them and try to lift heavier the next time around. Also, make sure to have your stop watch nearby so you can see how long it takes you today so you can measure your improvement later on! If you beat my time, which was 13:10, AWESOME!! Keep on kicking butt! If you take longer than me to do the workout - AWESOME!! You DID the workout! And, you established a baseline for you to try to improve upon. We all can improve something - whether its form, weight, or time. Lace up your sneaks, have water nearby and let's smash this workout!!
