Hi ladies and gents! Now, today is an active rest day. So get out and get moving. You don’t have to do anything super high impact, and you don’t have to get super sweaty if you don’t want to. Take a walk, play with the kids, take a bike ride. Whatever you choose to do, just get moving.
Buuuuuuut…If you’re looking to get nice and sweaty, here’s a full body workout for ya – Pyramid Style! (Notice my bright white legs – thank you February – and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu rash guard and volleyball shorts as I had just come from Jiu Jitsu class. Workouts aren’t always pretty, and workout clothes aren’t always pretty either.) Anyway, this is one of my favorite workouts. You don’t need a timer or any equipment, just a little grit and determination (and maybe a water bottle). There are only 5 exercises, but the catch is that you’ll do all 5 of them 5 times each, then 10 times each, then 15, 20, 15, 10 and 5 times….for a total of 80 of each. Sounds like fun, right?!? It is. And this is a great workout to take anywhere – to work, to your kids’ sports practices, or even on vacation. I promise you won’t be disappointed!
This is around a 20 minute workout focusing on the entire body. There are 5 exercises, and you’ll do each one 5-10-15-20-15-10-5 times for a total of 80 of each exercise. Awesome!
