My birthday was last Friday.
Two of my friends and fellow fitness professionals ‘gifted’ me with birthday workouts. I thank them both; I think.
Last week I shared one of them (“A Badass Birthday Workout”). Now that I’ve recovered 😉 , I thought I’d share the other.
Dai Manuel, CrossFitter and author of the popular fitness blog The Moose Is Loose, sent me a (surprise, surprise!) CrossFit style workout based on my age.
Meaning that each move in his body weight circuit needed to be completed 46 times.
46 pushups! 46 pullups! 46 BURPEES! and more! Oh my! Never have I wished more fervently that I was still 29…
Rather than videotape myself doing the workout and subjecting you to a painfully long YouTube video (I can tell that this workout is going to take me longer than the 7 minutes that people are willing to watch videos for…) and because it’s been a crazy, chaotic week at home (with little time for video editing) I’ll be doing it today, along with you, just as soon as I finish with my morning clients!
Perform 46 repetitions of each exercise, circuit-style, resting when you need to and moving on to the next exercise when you’re ready. Beginners could break the workout up into 4 circuits of 12, 12, 12 and 10 repetitions, respectively.
Time your workout and tell me, in the comments below, how long it took you to finish!
I’ll be back to report my time later!
And….. I finished it!
Modifications: TRX inverted row instead of pull-ups
