Workout Warrior Challenge WOW#3 And Dreams Of Lululemon!

Last week’s WOW was a blast and now it is in the past. It is time to kick things up a notch. I am so motivated and committed to this challenge. It can be a good thing to reward yourself when you reach a goal, so I might just do that. After I complete this challenge I will reward myself with some Lululemon workout clothes that I have been dreaming about:) Now on to the WOW#3.

Day 1 & 3

I will warm up with an 800m (1/2 mile) run or cycle 2 miles

I will do 5 exercises for 1 minute each (one after the other) and then rest for 1 whole minute. I will repeat this 2 more times. I will finish with another 800m (1/2 mile) run or cycle 2 miles. These are the exercises.

  • sumo dead lift with high pull – 1 minute
  • push press – 1 minute
  • situps – 1 minute
  • alternating bent rows – 1 minute
  • jump rope – 1 minute

I will use dumbbells and my 20 lb bar.

Day 2 & 4

I will do 4 rounds for time so I will go as fast as I can with correct form and record my time when I am finished. I will do these 5 exercises.

  • run 400m (1/4 mile) or cycle 1 mile
  • 20 pushups
  • 20 reverse lunges with bicep curl
  • 20 dips
  • 20 overhead squats (use broomstick or very light weight – beginners use no weight)

Just for kicks and giggles I will do a sprint challenge one day this week (on a day other than a WOW day). This is what I will do.

  • 1 minute sprint/1 minute recovery (slow down or walk)
  • 2 minute sprint/2 minute recovery
  • 3 minute sprint/3 minute recovery

I will do 3 rounds of this running circuit. Giggle!

Okay, I am pumped up about this WOW. I will demo exercises over on my YouTube channel so go to www.youtube.com and search me at nthefitzone.

Sweat Everyday!

I can picture my Lulu’s now. What are your fitness goals? What would you reward yourself with ?
