Workout Of the Week - "28 Days Till Summer!"

RDL.jpg

You heard it right my fit bodies. There’s 28 days left till summer. Granted, if you live in Austin, it feels like its already here, but it’s only going to get hotter. Clothes will become less and less. Are you ready to show off some skin? Do you feel like you need more cardio, leaning out workouts, and general tidying up on your nutrition? Well… Look no more, I, Jenn Frey, am here to save the day. For the next few weeks leading up to summer I will be putting together what Ive decided to call “Crossbreed Crusher”. This means we will be incorporating a training regime that combines high level strength and endurance into a single workout. i.e we will be adding some strength, to build muscle, muscular endurance to increase lean muscle mass, and high intensity interval/cardio training. 

If you really want this change ladies and gents just remember…. NONE of these workouts will matter if you're not giving your body the correct nutrition it needs to adapt and keep your metabolism high. 80% of your workout comes from the kitchen.

Anyway, let’s get this workout on the road. The first section, after your warm up, will be the “strength section”. This will include 1 compound move. i.e Squats and RDL’s. My two favorite exercises. After that we will move onto your high intensity/muscular endurance section. Which will be a time challenge this week. 5 rounds, 8 reps each exercise, 5 exercises. 

This is where there will be little to no rest and you really need to PUSH yourself to achieve results and make this workout count. 

How Long: 8-10 minute  Warm Up + 45-50 Minute Workout
