The Push-It Push-Up Workout

by Hillary on June 25, 2012

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 :)

Hill

Now this is a workout I have to try! I have zero running motivation too and I’m currently supposed to be training for marathon #2…

Looks like an awesome workout! I like the treadmill idea of running at the same speed and increasing the incline slowly, looks super tough!

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! :)
