Workout 115 - Back to School...Back into Shape!

Whether or not your life revolves around school (kids, yourself, teaching) it's time to get back into the swing of things.  Chances are over the summer you altered your workouts to accommodate outdoor activities.  In our experience, that usually means people do plenty of cardiovascular activity but drop resistance training since it tends to take place inside (but we know you know it doesn't have to!!)  If you haven't performed resistance training in weeks, we are encouraging you to get back into the routine...just as if you were going back to school.

Here is a workout to help you get back into the swing of things!  We have added some new exercises in the last week as well.  Remember, if it has been months since you performed resistance exercises you unfortunately will realize you've lost strength/and or endurance.   Our tip to you involves two words...be patient.  Oh, and lesson learned...don't let it happen again ;) haha!

Warm Up
1 min of march or jog, drop step squat (30sec each direction), inchworms , standing oblique twists 

Perform the following exercises for 1 minute each.  A minute is a long time, so really focus on your form which should help you pace yourself.  

1 min walkout pushups
1 min plank rows  (can do standing if you like)
1 min back lunge with hop (switch legs at 30 secs)
1 min rolling planks
1 min side squat (hold weighted object)
rest 1 minute 

repeat for a total of 3 rounds...you can always do more if you like :)
