Workout of the Week #sprints

Good things come to those who sweat

If it doesn't challenge you, it won't change you. When it comes to working it out, it is so important to change your routine and challenge yourself. If you  don't dial up the speed or weight once in awhile, chances are you've plateaued. Try to push yourself out of your comfort zone each week and of course let me know how it goes! This week I'm taking it outside and sharing a tough but effective sprint + circuit workout that I have not done in awhile to make sure I'm using muscles I have not used lately. 

The Workout

10 Minute Warmup

50 Jumping Jacks, 100 Jump Ropes, 50 Mountain Climbers & 1 minute light jog. Do as many rounds until the 15 minutes is up. 

Sprints Time

  1. Before you begin count out 100 paces. If you are on a track use the length of the field, if you are on a street use your steps and mark your starting and end point with street signs, and on a hill use rocks or water bottle to mark your starting and ending point. 
  2. Start out with a fast pace jog the first 10 paces then kick it into gear with a full out sprint through the 100 pace mark. Your recovery will be a light jog back to the beginning. Remember this can be as fast or slow as you need it to be to recover and calm your breathing. 
  3. Repeat 8-12 times. 
  4. You got this! Don't give up! 

Recovery Time 

You should be sure to stretch! This is uber important! For some post run stretching exercises head on over here.

The best project you'll ever work on is you

Make sure to make the most out of you workout with stretching. Not only does stretching help improve performance in your workouts and decrease the risk of injury but it increase blood flow to your muscles helping your joints get the full motion and allow your muscle to work as effectively as possible! Don't forget to stretch! 

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you guys have a great weekend! What's your favorite sprint workout? I'd love to hear!  Xo
