Last night I needed a workout. I also needed to cross about 50 other things off my to-do list. By the time I could actually workout I had 15 minutes before I needed to get in the shower.
I considered my options. I could run 1+ mile of sprints or I could do plyometrics in the house.
Plyo meant less sweating and a little more muscle burn. I went for it.
12 Minutes of Plyo
-30 seconds of burpees
-30 seconds of jump squats
-15 split squat jumps with the right foot in front
-15 split squat jumps with the left foot in front
-30 seconds of high knees running in place
-30 seconds of mountain climbers
-15 plank to push-ups on each arm (get in a plank on your elbow. Push up to a push-up position starting with your right arm. Come back down to your elbows then repeat starting with your left arm. That equals one rep. This one works the shoulders and core.)
-30 seconds of the best pull-up effort you can give! (I did 7 pull-ups. Then I jumped up and did negative pullups. You could also do a flexed arm hang).
-10 hanging knee raises. (My fave ab move! Hang from the pull-up bar and curl your knees up)
And REPEAT! Please enjoy the out of breath feeling you'll have...I know I did! :)
