Tired Workout

We were incredibly lucky to find a giant tire in the field behind our house. Someone had dumped it there. I ran past it a few times before I decided it needed to come home with us. I laugh at the memory of E and I rolling it through the neighborhood back to our house. Some of my students live in the neighborhood and asked me funny questions about it the next day. I'm not sure what we'll do with it when we eventually move because I'm already pretty attached ;)

Warm-Up: 7 squat jumps, 3 perfect push-ups, 20 crunches, repeat 3 times.
Warm-down: Walk around the block and stretch!

Workout Tips:

  • Land softly when doing box jumps and bend your knees.
  • Pump your knee into the air when doing step-ups and alternate legs.
  • Our tire is incredibly heavy, so I was only able to do 1 flip per round. Adjust the number of reps based on your ability. If you do not have a tire, find something else that is heavy and lift it up!
  • Aim for 4 rounds, but if you're exhausted after 3, throw in the towel and set a goal for next time.
