No BS Open Workout #3

Workout #2 was fast a furious, with 5 rounds of 100 meter sprints and 10 squats, there was barely any time to breath.  The women that completed the workout this week showed that time is never an excuse, with all four of them finishing in under 5 minutes.  Lee finished in 3 minutes flat, Norah in 3:42, Helen in 4:42 and Jen in 4:58 (that was after she’d done 100 burpees!)  Great job, ladies!  I don’t know why I didn’t hear from any of those men?  The boys must have heard about your times and went running…no pun intended.

This week’s workout is in one of my favorite formats; a ladder.  Good burpee form will challenge your abdominal muscles, adding sit ups will bring it to a whole new level.

Burpee standards: chest to deck and your hands above your head at the top!

Sit up standards: With a towel rolled up under your back, or an abmat, to support your lower back, and your feet on the floor, lean back until your shoulders touch the ground, shoulders will come all the way back up to the knees!

  • 10 burpees, 11 sit ups
  • 9 burpees, 12 sit ups
  • 8 burpees, 13 sit ups
  • 7 burpees, 14 sit ups
  • 6 burpees, 15 sit ups
  • 5 burpees, 16 sit ups
  • 4 burpees, 17 sit ups
  • 3 burpees, 18 sit ups
  • 2 burpees, 19 sit ups
  • 1 burpee, 20 sit ups

Yet another workout that doesn’t require an equipment and very little time, make time in your schedule this week to complete it.  E-mail me your results if you would like, or just e-mail me and say “Hey Lauren, I did it!”  I would be happy to hear that you have challenged yourself!

Happy Tuesday, and great work again, ladies for a job well done!

    Workout# 3 was not as fast and furious as #2, but it certainly wasn’t as easy as it looked. Lauren and I worked out side by side last Wednesday and finished in 9 minutes 23 or 33 seconds. Can’t quite remember exactly. All I know is that for several days, it hurt to laugh.

    Thanks Lauren for another good workout. Can’t wait to find out what you have in store for this week 🙂
