Not a problem! Also, for Florida, since it dipped under 50 degrees (Fahrenheit) that meant everyone was running around freezing, or were gleefully wearing any and all of the "cold weather clothes" that they never get to wear. Seriously, you would have thought a bizzard was on the way, or that the ski lodge was next door. I understand though, unless Floridians travel at all during the winter, we don't get to wear any cold weather things. I'm sure people with fireplaces are hastily firing them up... A much more sane approach would be to check out the workout(s) below.
This certainly raised the temperatures across the board:
We warmed up with Primal Move then timed how long it took to complete 100swings (participants chose their - both chose a moderate weight). I am proud to say that everyone was able to do it in a single set, which is always nice to see. It also means that next time they'll want to choose something maybe a little heavier? :) HAHA.
Now for the circuit -- 5 toasty rounds of:
- 20 Alternating step ups (medium height box jump boxes) with or without held in front of chest
- 20 swings
- 20 sprawls (basically a burpee minus the pushup and the jump)
- 20 battling rope "up-downs"
- 20 push ups (choice of variant)
They were instructed to rest when necessary and if they needed to break up the moves into sets that was ok too.
After a brief rest, we did a descending ladder of the infamous"long " with a moderate to heavy (a lead up drill to and jerk, but more closely related to what some people call a "thruster"):
- 5 on the right, 5 on the left
- 4 on the right, 4 on the left
- 3 on the right, 3 on the left
- 2 on the right, 2 on the left
- 1 on the right, 1 on the left
These will make you hungry, it's uncanny.
Finally we cooled down a little with a little more, and dashed to the cars!!! Brrrrrrr!
