I hope you all have had a great week and have progressed towards your goals in and out of the gym! I am excited to do 13.4 this week, my only wish was that the cleans were heavier 🙂 But luckily it’s only 7 minutes of pain so I am not complaining too much!
So what are your plans for the weekend? I am going to go home to join my family for church and Easter dinner. Luckily for me, my dad is cooking me salmon (as he most likely shakes his head in amazement as to how I could skip out on all the “good” food) and I will also be throwing down some asparagus and sweet potato.
I will be skipping out on the chocolate this year (my favorite are the malted milk ball eggs and a big chocolate peanut butter egg–u know, the ones that are the size of a closed fist that requires a knife to eat)…drooling just thinking about it. But regardless, I will be getting in my workouts and looking to my goal of qualifying for national competitions!
My gym will be closed Saturday since they are moving, so before I assist in the move, I will be on campus to do sprints. I haven’t done these in a while–last time I tweaked my groin, so I will be doing 50yd sprints and at most 6 to ease my body back into it (unless by some miracle my legs don’t feel like silly string and i don’t feel like I am going to get hurt..aka training smart).
So if you want to join me in my workout..here is what it will be!
- Warm-up (for at least 15 minutes–very important to warm up the body before sprints)
- 6-8 x 50yd sprints (1-2 min rest in between–going off feel)
- Stadium sprint combo (YSU has a pretty big stadium, so I am doing half a row (20-30 steps) up and down 2-3 times–should take around 30 seconds–followed by an exercise listed below then back to the stadium sprints and so on. Finish whole workout as fast as possible!
- 20 burpees
- 20 hand release push-ups
- 20 V-ups
- 20 squat jumps
- 20 bulgarian split squats–10 ea. leg (put back foot on stadium seat/bench/whatever you can find or sub for static lunges)
- 1 min plank
If you do the workout, let me know how it goes! I hope you all have a great weekend!
