33nd workout of the year, 3/28/2011.

Music: Slipknot. T-shirt: Magnum. (This not this.)

Magic Number: 52. That means someone had a birthday. I wonder how we can do some new moves to stimulate the body?

Body parts will get sore no matter what we do this go round so this will be an all body weight workout. So like the other body weight workouts: You Can Do This At Home!

The question is: Will You?

First: Agility Ladders

A nice way to ease back into working out.

The way we do them warms up the entire body.

There are probably hundreds of “drills”.

Anyone can just make ’em up. Nothing is really “wrong”.

Second: A Push Up Drill

1 Push Up Every 5 Seconds Up To 52 Reps with a static hold at the top position.

A very deceiving exercise.

This took over 4 minutes.

Why don’t you just try just 1 minute?

Third: Lunge Hop/Burpee Combo

10 Lunge Hops then 1 Burpee working up to 52 burpees.

What can you say?

It always sucks when you do burpees!

Fourth: 52 “Rep” Bridge Body Blast

The simple bridge can really burn up the core, thighs and glutes…especially done like this.

Bridges are held at the top position for 5 seconds then down and back up again for a total of 52.

Immediately following the 5 second bridges was a 52 second hold.
