107th workout of the year, 10/29/2011.

Music: Def Leppard. T- Shirt: Happy Halloweenie (glows in the dark!).

Def Leppard again. Well, I just didn’t get around to changing the CD.

So yeah! We were sore from doing the “One Hour, One Exercise!” workout. It was tough. Partly core but a lot of thighs and glutes for that one!

So we’ll do a variety of stuff today that was inspired by Joe Hashey’s Push Up Challenge a few months ago.

First: Agility Ladders

You’ve seen it. You may have done it.

There are plenty of drills out there and we are doing a few.

Gets the heart beating!

Second: Ground Up Push Ups

Not too many. Just one.

Well one every 5 seconds until you get 50 reps.

Still doesn’t sound too bad?

The catch is you “rest” the 5 seconds in the “up” position.

Still sounds too easy?

Then try it!

Third: Squat

Like the push ups. Only one rep.

Every 5 seconds till you get to 50.

The “rest” period here is in the “hover” position.

Guys may not know what the “hover” position is…that’s OK.

Apparently you can ask any girl and she’ll be able to help you with that!

Fourth: Sit Ups

Yep. Regular old school sit ups.

Don’t care to hear about how something might be “more effective”.

Try it our way.

One rep every 5 seconds till you get to 50.

And the “rest” position is midway of the sit up.

And heck…if 50 reps is too easy for you, just remember, it’s only a number.

You can always do more!

Fifth: Furniture Slider Pulls

I don’t really have a good name for this exercise. I’ll describe it but you still may want to refer to the video.

You get a furniture slider and put it under your toes. While in a push up position you pull your feet toward your hands. Try to keep your knees straight.

You do one movement every five seconds until you get twenty five reps. The “rest” is the top of the push up position.

Why did we only do 25?

Try it…you’ll find out!

Sixth: Furniture Sliders On Hands

Similar to the above…but different.

The sliders are on your hands. You get on your knees and slide out as far as your arms and body will allow.

You are now in the “rest” position. Hang out there for 5 seconds then repeat the process for 25 reps.

Seventh: More Abbie Core Things

Lemon Squeezers  Clap Hands Under Bent Knees 25 Reps

Unilateral Lemon Squeezers  Clap Hands Under Bent Knees 25 Reps Each Side

Unilateral Leg Raises Clap Hands Under Each Knee 25 Reps Each Side

Eighth: Leg Raises

Here we go again. Regular old school leg raises.

Again I don’t care to hear about how another move might be “more effective”.

Try it our way. You won’t like it.

Heck! I don’t even like it!

One rep every 5 seconds till you get to 25.

And the “rest” position is midway of the leg raise.

Ninth: Seated Leg Raises

Similar to the regular leg raises. Of course…you guessed it.

You’re seated!!

The legs don’t come up as high.

No matter. You’ll still feel it.

Like the other leg raises: 1 rep every 5 seconds till you get to 25.

And the “rest” position is midway of the leg raise.
