Workout of the Week #5

Good morning!  It has been a busy morning for me already and I am sure glad I had this workout to go to first thing this morning.  Unfortunately, when my husband came in after his workout to wake me up at 6:15, I only had time to get in one round- one round was enough to get me sweating, increase my heart rate and get my blood flowing so I could take on the day.  I also completed this workout yesterday after 35 minute power walk.

My husband, who is training for a half marathon in November, completed a modified version of this as well.  He combined the push-ups and spiderman planks with four 800m repeats for some speed work and strength this morning.  To say the least, he came in after his workout this morning and his words were, “I have a bone to pick with you dear.  Those planks were no joke!”  A complete success in my book, as it has taken almost 7 years of “togetherness” for him to allow me to write his workouts.

This workout might also be a good time to give yourself a “fit test” and see how many push-ups you can do on your toes.  This morning I decided I want to see how many I could do at 38 weeks and 4 days pregnant.  I am happy to report that I was able to get 13 push-ups on my toes and then dropped to my knees for the last 7.

Give it a go and let us know what you think!  If you are new to fitness, that is okay- do you what you can!  Try doing 10 reps in each round instead of 20 or even spread out the rounds throughout the day.  Whatever you do, just MOVE today!
