Weekly Workout: Favorite Workouts

Pull-up Push Workout

The favorite workout of the week was a mix of 1 mile runs. You can do them nice and easy as a recovery run, hard and timed at your goal testing pace, or mix in fast / slow intervals for a specified time or distance. However, following the run, you have a full body cycle of exercises focusing on grip, pushing / pulling, and core mixed with longer distance sprint / jogs. Try to go fairly heavy with the KB swings and work on sit-up pace for be goal pace for 2 minute timed sets for testing.
