THIS WEEK’S PROTOCOL
45 sec on, 15 sec off x 5 Rounds
(Basically… about 5 min per exercise)
Just let the timer do all the thinking for you and focus on your mind to muscle connection to get the most out of your workout. If you love counting your reps, then count them and see if you can get the same number or beat your original number each round! You’ll be moving down the list of exercises in order, doing each move for 45 sec work 15 sec rest for 5 rounds. Rest as long as needed between rounds.
Protocol: Perform each move in order down the list for
45 seconds work,
15 seconds rest
x 5 Rounds.
i.e. 45 sec pushups, 15 sec rest. 45 sec squats, 15 sec rest, etc…

Regression: Drop to knees for pushup and rows, plus you can step the plank jack out one foot at a time.
Challenge: Heavier DB’s or feet closer together.
2. Lateral Bound + Low Squat Jack

Alternate arms for the snatch.
Use heavy DB.
Keep a straight line from head to toes when you hop out into the plank.
