I’ve really been loving our garage workouts lately, and wanted to share another one I did this week! My latest realistic fitness goal has been to complete two garage workouts and run 1 5K MINIMUM every week. I feel like that’s pretty doable, and so far, so good. Adam and I have had fun making up workouts for each other, and coming up with a sequence of exercises to complete a total of 500 movements, in as little time as possible. It produces quite the workout, and has us sweating in no time. A Marine friend of ours recommended this style of workout, and so far we’ve been loving the results. I also feel like it’s a fun way to workout lots of different muscles that I maybe normally wouldn’t push myself to workout.
This workout in particular, just about did me in with the burpees, which are still pretty killer for my postpartum-lack-of-core-mom-bod! But, slowly but surely they’re getting easier, and I can tell my stamina is building! So, that’s a good thing!
For this workout, you’ll do 5 rounds of 10 for each exercise, to total 50 of each, 500 total. In between each round, rest for 30 seconds to a minute, then complete the next round, ideally doing each exercise as fast as possible!
Here are the weights I used for each. (Adam of course, would bump up the weight for him.)
Weighted lunges – 2 8lb dumbbells; Overhead press – 2 8lb dumbbells or 1 15lb (wish I had 10’s!); Butterfly – 2 5lb dummbells; Goblet squats – 15 lb kettlebell; Weighted side bends – 15 lb kettlebell
Happy sweating! And cheers to all you mamas out there working hard to get fit before summer! Solidarity sisters, we got this!
Let me know if you do this workout!
