Workout Warrior Challenge WOW#5 and Fit Test

The end is near. This has been a great month for the Warrior Challenge. My favorite workouts are high intensity short duration. These types of workouts give me the best results. This week is no different. I will do two different workouts and I will do the fit test again to see how I have progressed. This is how I will start the week.

Day 1

I will warm up with an 800m run (1/2 mile) or cycle 2 miles. I will do 4 rounds of these exercises with correct form.

  • dumbbell chest press – 1 minute
  • triangle pushups (my hand position will be the shape of triangle) – 1 minute
  • squat dumbbell press – 1 minute
  • jump rope – 1 minute

I will finish with an 800m run or cycle 2 miles.

Day 2

I will warm up with an 800m run or cycle 2 miles. I will set my timer for 15 minutes and perform AMRAP of these exercises with correct form.

  • 20 spider knees
  • 20 reverse lunges with bicep curls
  • 20 plank rows
  • 20 lower body jacks

I will complete this workout with an 800m run or cycle 2 miles.

I will do these exercises with a positive attitude and to the best of my ability.

Day 3

I will repeat the fit test I took at the beginning of the challenge. I will time myself to compare my result from the beginning fit test. My result should be good. Excited!

I have to set small challenges like this to help me stay focused so I can achieve goals I have set for myself. Right now I am training to run a 5k on November 17th. My goal is to increase my speed and finish under my last 5k time. This Workout Warrior Challenge has kept me focused. I will keep you posted on my training and my race:) Below is a picture of me about to cross the finish line of my first marathon. I set the goal, trained hard and completed the marathon under my expected time. It was a great feeling of accomplishment that I will never forget.

Have you set any new health and fitness goals?
