OH, hayy. Look at me in 11th grade. I still remember sweating out my hair during 1st period gym class when they made us run the track on muggy mornings at 8am. Grrr…
But you know what? In retrospect, those high school workouts were dang effective for conditioning and fat loss. I recently took it old school and incorporated some of our favorite, grueling high school exercise moves into one sweaty workout session of awesomeness. Care to take a whack at it?
HIGH SCHOOL WORKOUT CIRCUIT
After completing a 5-minute warm up of your choice, tackle 3 rounds of this circuit:
- 30-count wall sit
- 20 jumping jacks
- 10 push-ups
- 3 minutes Suicides — no cheating, make sure you touch the ground!
- 25 old school sit ups (not crunches)
- 50 mountain climbers
…now take it from the top and begin the circuit again. For the suicides portion of the workout, use the countdown setting on your phone’s free stopwatch app. And while you’re at it, please pull the wedgie out your gym shorts.
Free Bonus: If you thirst for an extra-truly authentic high school gym experience, I will offer you a dodge ball to the face, hurled at highest velocity. Now get ready for it. My throwing arm is strong.
