Easter Candy Burn-Off

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 ūüôā ¬†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)

then…

  • 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!
  1. 20 burpees
  2. 20 hand release push-ups
  3. 20 V-ups
  4. 20 squat jumps
  5. 20 bulgarian split squats–10 ea. leg (put back foot on stadium seat/bench/whatever you can find or sub for static lunges)
  6. 1 min plank

If you do the workout, let me know how it goes!  I hope you all have a great weekend!
