The 8-Count Body Builder | Summer Workout Programs
This killer is similar to a burpee, but adds an extra step. Start by standing and squat down, placing your hands on the floor (1). Jump your feet back to plank (2) and do a push-up (3-4). Jump your feet out into a straddle, and then back together (5-6). Jump your feet back to your hands to sit in a tuck position (7). Stand up and jump (8). Start with 10 repetitions. How did that feel?
Squat to Press | Summer Workout Programs
Work your entire body at once as you combine legs and shoulders. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and grasp dumbbells in each hand, palms forward at shoulder level. Squat down, keeping your knees behind your toes and weight on your heels until your thighs are parallel to the floor. As you press to stand back up, push the dumbbells straight overhead for a shoulder press. Lower them back down as you bend your knees for your second squat. Start with 12 to 15 repetitions, and chose a dumbbell weight that is challenging by how you feel on those last few reps.
Plank Series | Summer Workout Programs
This challenging plank series takes you through poses that engage your core like never before. Start with a basic plank and hold for 30 seconds. Give yourself 10 seconds of rest between each plank type. Go back into your plank, but this time, alternate lightly tapping your knees to the floor for 30 seconds. Next, lift one leg off the ground, keeping your knee straight to emphasize glute/hamstring activation; hold it for a second, and then put it down. Continue alternating legs for 30 seconds. For the fourth variety, alternate your arms while keeping your hips steady and square to the ground. Finally, move into side planks with your feet either on top of one another, or one in front of the other, and place your free arm straight into the air. Hold 30 seconds on each side. As your core strengthens, try to move through these variations without coming out of the plank, for a total of three minutes!
A great way to finish any workout is with sprints. Sprint all out for 40 to 50 yards long. When you sprint, run as fast as you can for a short duration, about 15 to 25 seconds, then allow yourself to walk for about 30 to 60 seconds for recovery. Do 10 repetitions.
