Your Workout of the Month

The weather is still nice, and with the leaves changing soon and the brisk air among us, what better reason to workout outside? Head over to the football/soccer field and try out this total body workout.

• Warm up - walk/jog 5 minutes

You will be using the perimeter of the field. Start at one corner and work your way around.

• 1 lap each

• Jog the long sections and sprint the short sections

• Jog the long sections, do alternating walking lunges on the short sections

• Jog each section, at each corner do pushups until failure

• Jog the long sections, do walking squats on the short sections

Repeat up to four times. Be sure to choose a level that is appropriate for you.

• Cool down - walk/jog 5 minutes

• Stretch

This is an intermediate/advanced workout. If you are a beginner, start slow and modify where necessary. For example, walk instead of jog; jog instead of sprint; do push-ups from your knees instead of standard push-ups, etc.

Please be sure to get a doctors approval before beginning any exercise program. If you are not sure about any of the exercises, please consult with a certified personal trainer or feel free to e-mail me with any questions.

Good luck and have fun!
