Back to workout Wednesday, I hope y’all have stayed safe over spring break!
This is a workout my good friend and workout buddy, Kate Bowers, sent me to do while I am at home over break and the two weeks following. For this workout, you will need some dumbbells, and if your local gym is open I would recommend doing it there. I used 5-pound dumbbells during cardio and 20-pound during the lifting portion for reference. If you have no weights, I would recommend lifting a household object around 10 pounds, perhaps double fist bottles of champagne?
P.S I did this workout today for 8 rounds and it was killer! This is what our typical workouts look like when we hit the gym together.
Kate’s workout plan:
WARM-UP AND STRETCH YOUR WAY
30 seconds jump squats
30 seconds dumbbell punches
30 seconds mountain climbers
30 seconds plank jacks
15 seconds burpees
45 seconds rest
repeat 8-10 rounds
Banded weighted squats 25 reps
Banded weighted hip thrusts 20 reps
Sidestep weighted squats 10 reps
Lunges with dumbbells 10 reps
repeat 3 times.
Throw in some jumping jacks if you need extra cardio!
Make sure that you have a cool down such as walking and stretching at the end of this workout.
Get after it! – Maddie
