As I’m often asked about our workouts I thought I’d share a little bit of what this morning’s workout looked like.
So, if we missed you this morning here’s your chance to make it up. If you are looking for something different to do, this is for you, too.
You will need hand weights if you have them. If you are just starting an exercise program try it without the weights. You will also need A place to run a suicide. Remember these from PE? Find at least 4 spots you can mark to touch and race back to starting position and repeat until you’ve touched all 4 marked spots- You know you love these! And actually reach down and touch the ground . . . half the fun is sneaking in those extra squats!
