The Push-It Push-Up Workout

Hey Friends!

I hope ya all have had a good Monday. I owe ya’ll some photos a la my new camera, but I thought, tonight, I’d share with you my Monday Moves. I don’t know whether it was the photos of my birthday twin’s killer 8-pack or the ice cream indulgences this weekend, but I didn’t mess around at the WREC today.

Warm-Up

  • 4 x 20 sec. kettlebell swings @ 25lb.
  • 4 x 20 sec. squat w/ knee twist @ 25lb.

Track Set

  • 1/4 mi. run
  • 20 box jumps @ 24in.
  • 10 burpees

repeat 4x

Treadmill Set

2.33 mi. run // 20 minutes

  • 2 min. each @ 1.0 / 2.0 / 3.0 / 4.0 incline – 7.5mph
  • 4 min. @ 4.0 incline – 4.5mph walking break
  • 2 min. each @ 1.0 / 2.0 / 3.0 / 4.0 incline – 7.8mph

Cardio/Strength Set

  • 1 min. jump rope
  • 10 push-ups

repeat 4x

  • 10 front squats w/ 50lb. sandbag

My philosophy: sweat regularly, indulge often.

Tomorrow’s Runnin’ Tuesday, but my motivation to run these days is minimal. Let’s be DailyMile pals or fellow FITspiration friends!

See ya soon :)

    I’m going to make it running wednesday and I’ll make sure to dailymile it… no gps watch today, so just a “free and easy” {but still hard} run!

    Your workout sounds awesome, you certainly did not mess around! Have a good wednesday :)

    I’ve been LOVING on pushups lately – until I caught a glimpse of my upper back in the reflection of the microwave tonight and it made me love them a WHOLE lot more. This looks like a badass workout! <3

    SO for the treadmill set, do I start with 2 mins at 1 incline at 7.5 miles an hour then go to 4 mins 4 incline at 4.5mph then back to 2 mins at 1 incline at 7.5 miles an hour then back to the top? Can you explain this one a little bit better because it looks like a real intense workout I would wanna attempt! You can write back to me through my blog or email at avenetos@luc.edu – thanks! :)

      2 mins @ 1.0, 2 mins @ 2.0, 2 mins @ 3.0, 2 mins @ 4.0 (8 mins total @ 7.5mph)

      Rest with 4 mins walking, then repeat first set @ 7.8mph.

      Hope that helps! :)
