3 Evens & 4 Odds

7 Sep

Well good morning and happy day after Hump day! This post was supposed to go out yesterday but work, school, and life got in the way :).

Need an upper body workout with sprint intervals in between sets? Ask and you shall receive!

3 Evens & 4 Odds

In the first circuit, you’ll start by power walking/running/sprinting on the treadmill then hop off and complete 10 reps of 3 exercises. Repeat 3 times through (switching between the two):

  • 1 minute treadmill @ 1% incline, 3.5-5.0mph (power walking), 5.0-6.5mph (running), 7.0-8.0mph (sprinting)
  • chest press, bent-over rows, push-ups w/ knee tucks (alternate knees)

In the second circuit, you’ll start with 11 reps of 4 exercises then hop on the treadmill and power walk/run/sprint. Repeat 4 times through (switching between the two):

  • squat press, biceps curls, triceps extensions
  • 1 minute treadmill @ 1% incline, 3.5-5.0mph (power walking), 5.0-6.5mph (running), 7.0-8.0mph (sprinting)

Don’t be afraid to go a little heavier, weights-wise, than usual on this workout; the reps aren’t as high so we’re working on building strength rather than endurance. As always, proper form is CRUCIAL!

The Rec Center is set up in a way that makes circuit workouts (where you’re all over the place!) easy and doable; there are plenty of treadmills, so don’t be afraid to hog be near one for a while AND there are dumbbell options. You could either use the gray boring dumbbells or the pretty colored dumbbells..you’re choice 🙂

Enjoy!

    My sis instructed me about your web site and the way great it is. She’s right, I am actually impressed with the writing and slick design. It appears to me you’re simply scratching the floor in terms of what you may accomplish, however you’re off to an ideal begin!

    Very nice article and right to the point. I am not sure if this is really the best place to ask but do you guys have any thoughts on where to hire some professional writers? Thx 🙂
