Summer Sweat Series, Workout 2

September 16, 2015

 

To prove that these workouts can truly be done #ANYWHERE, we went to the road. No comfy grass, nothing but some gravel and a bench- a park bench that is. Super simple. 

 

On to the workout. 

 

Do 15 reps for each exercise, then cycle back and complete all exercises again, in order, 2 more times. That means, 15 reps each, 3 cycles total.

 

 

Here's the running list:

 

1) Jumping jacks

2) Tower Touch

3) Tricep Dips

4) Raised Knee-Touch

5) Lifted Pushups

6) Caterpillar Legs

 

15 reps, 3 cycles. 

 

 

Always remember to warm up and stretch guys.

 

Jumping Jacks

 

Start with your legs a bit wider than shoulder-width apart and arms raised. Jump, lowering your hands to your sides and bringing your legs in. That's one rep.

 

 

 

Tower Touch

 

Stand straight with your arms raised. Then touch your right elbow to right knee. Switch sides. That's one rep.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tricep Dips 

Find a bench, or other raised and stable area. Place your hands, fingertips forward, on the bench with your heels on the ground in front. Lower your butt toward the ground, bending your elbows to a 90 degree angle. Hold two seconds and lift back up to start, keeping your elbows soft (no hyper-extending!)  

 

 (Looks like somone has a short attention span.)

 

 

 

Raised Knee Touch

On that same bench, face the back of the bench and place one foot on top. With shoulders back and abs tight, lunge up, bringing your knee close to your chest. Touch back down. That's one rep. Do your 15 reps on EACH LEG. 

 

 

Elevated pushups

 

Our Audrey may be a tough cookie who can peril her hands in the rough gravel (and she kept her shirt on, as we aren't that kind of site). But, if you think of it, bring a towel to place your paws on, (or your shirt, if you feel cool). Place your hands shoulder width apart, feet together in plank position. Bend your elbows and bring your chest close to the ground. Slowly raise back to plank position. That's one rep.

 

 

 Caterpillars

A nice name for a not-so-nice exercise. Sitting on the edge of the bench, Bring your knees in with your chest raised. Slowly extend your legs forward. Hardest part is keeping your back flat and abs TIGHT.
