Never Ending Lunges

Workout:
EMOM for 20 minutes
20 Jumping Lunges 
20 V-ups
*At the top of every minute 5 burpees 

Score: 16+5

This one is going to hurt tomorrow. Jumping lunges isn’t a movement I do very often and now I know why. They hurt and get your heart rate up.

This was a great combination of movements, the lunges were fast but intense and the V-ups let the heart recover but became slower over time. Burpees were annoying, but 5 was manageable.

I definitely wasn’t able to go unbroken on anything besides the burpees, my goal was to do one round each minute but that didn’t happen. As I began to fall off target I tried to stay consistent and give myself a little built-in rest each round which really helped in the back half of the workout. I’m not going to want to do lunges for a while after this.

Working out with an Audince

This morning my alarm went off and so did my two boys. Since I was determined to workout and was already dressed. I rolled the dice and brought the boys downstairs along with 2 bags of Cheerios. 6:45am is not a normal wake up time for my kids so needed to make this workout fast.

EMOM for 21 minutes:
1 Minute of wall-balls (20lbs)
1 Minute of Push-press (65lbs)
1 Minute of Air Bike
1 Minute of rest

Score: Consistent on every movement, 23 wall-balls, 23 Push-press, and 11 cals on the Air bike each round.

Simple workouts like these are perfect for the rushed mornings. Low skill, little equipment and a built in 1 minute rest to tend to the kids. I’m just happy they made it through and proud of myself for sticking to my workout plan. Win, win.
