2013 Memorial Day Workout

memorialAs you enjoy your 2013 Memorial Day, we want to take a moment to give thanks to all those who made the ultimate sacrifice, or have served in any way for our country. We’d also like to send love to those families who cannot be with their loved ones today because of their current service to our country. Although a day of memorium, today is also a great day to connect with those you love – gathering for BBQ’s, games, fun and laughter. Whatever positive experiences you have in store today, be sure to send some of that good energy to our troops overseas and those who can’t be with their loved ones today — it can make all the difference! And before you head off to your fun for the day, we thought we’d give you a quick bodyweight workout to give YOUR body some extra energy. Enjoy!

Directions: Complete all 5 exercises back-to-back with little to no rest in between exercises; this equals one round. You’ll do 5 rounds total (for time). If needed, take a 1 minute rest after each round, otherwise, try to move at a consistent pace through all 5 exercises, never compromising form or technique. Remember – exercise should work to balance your body, so focus on using each exercise to strengthen the body exactly how you want to look in life (with good posture, a long spine, engaged core and no tension at the neck/shoulders).

(1) 12/side runner’s lunge to crane hops
(2) 10 squat thrusts
(3) 20 squat jumps
(4) 10 total of: 1 push up + 10 mountain climbers
(5) 10/side x ups
