Weekend Workout Series

Yesterday morning on my run, I felt like I had an epiphany of sorts, and my mind couldn't stop racing with ideas, no pun intended. 

Aside from loving fashion, I probably love working out just a little more. Health and wellness are my passion, always have been, and hopefully always will be. I'm kind of a sucker for a good workout, and enjoy getting all sweaty and pushing myself to the max. Finding new workouts excites me, especially when they're really good.

So, Friday's I'm going to start featuring a weekend workout series, and give you all a fabulous workout you can do over the weekend to get your booty in shape, off the couch, and feeling all nice and healthy like. Who am I to qualify to give you a good workout? No, I'm not a personal trainer (at least not yet), but I did work at fat camp, so I think that qualifies me, right? 

I've mentioned this workout before on my other blog, but it really is that good that I'm kicking this series off with this one. So, without further ado, here is this weekends workout. I found it off of this blog, and after doing it a few times and loving it, I've modified it a bit to make it that much better.
  • 3 1/2 laps, jog
  • 1/2 lap, sprint
  • 1 lap, jog
  • 15 burpees
  • 15 bench push ups
  • 1 lap, jog
  • 15 walking lunges with back kick & knee lift
  • 15 jump squats
  • 1 lap, jog
  • 30 bench tricep dips
  • 1/2 lap, jog
  • 1/2 lap, sprint
  • 45 squats & jab
  • 45 mountain climbers
  • 1/2 lap, light jog
  • 1/2 lap, sprint
  • 30 tricep dips
  • 30 modified push ups
  • 2 laps, jog
  • 1 cool down lap, walk
If you dare try it out, let me know how you did.

Happy weekend everyone!

Hee! I love the shoes!

How about I start with 3 1/2 laps jogging? I think I can do that.

I haven't run outside in ages. Come back to DC and run with me!

A lap is 400 meters, right? Where I live, a lap around our soccer fields is 1/2 a mile, so I'm just making sure.

How long does this workout take you, start to finish?

Too long. Make it three bullet points and I'm in.

On Saturday, I'll give it a try....how far do you think I'll get?

Wait, what is a bench tricep dip? I'm guessing like a push-up using the bench? Demonstration please.
