It's About Time

If you have ever spent more that 5 minutes with me, it is fairly obvious that I love fitness. I have learned so much (sometimes the hard way) in the 30 years that I have been teaching. What better way to share my passion than to start a blog and pass on the information that I share with clients on a day-to-day basis.

Dirty Thirty Workout

This is a fun but intense workout.  There are two exercises per round.  One is more cardio based and the other is more strength based.  On the cardio side we are working on quicker movements and on the strength side we are working on more controlled movements.  The person or group performing the strength exercises are in charge of the length of time at each station.  The strength movement is performed 30 times hence the name "Dirty Thirty".  The cardio group just keeps repeating their exercise until the strength group is done. Switch roles three times before going on to the next  set of exercises.  I have included pictures  with the exercises we used today.

Round One
1.  Walking lunges with bar (Alternate Legs)
2.  Bicep curls on BOSU with band

Round Two
1.  Stairs
2.  Grasshoppers (Side to side is just counted as one of your thirty)

Round Three
1. Jumps on and off of Step or BOSU
2.  Kettlebell Swings

Round Four
1.  Spinning in upright position
2.  Pull Ups

Round Five
1.  Ab Crunches on Ball
2.  Prone Plank on Ball (Circle arms 15 one direction and 15 other direction
