Action items for Sunday, May 17th:
EMOM 14 minutes
12 weighted squats or 20 bodyweight squats
12 weighted sprawl deadlift or 20 bodyweight sprawl jumps
EMOM, or Every Minute On the Minute, is a workout style that challenges you to work efficiently in order to afford yourself a rest at the end. Time yourself for 14 minutes, two minutes longer than last week. Now, start your 12 weighted squats or 20 bodyweight squats. Once you've finished ( should take about 40 seconds give or take) the rest of the minute (about 20 seconds) is a rest. At minute number two, complete 12 weighted sprawl deadlifts or 20 bodyweight sprawl jumps.
Note: A sprawl jump is NOT a burpee, work on getting your hips to the floor as you sprawl your legs back. Also, no push up!
At LEAST 12 minutes yoga flow. Join me at 12 for a yoga session!
Follow one of my new yoga flows here.
Throw out or donate 3 things you don't have use for anymore
This is my favorite challenge. I've noticed the last few weeks, every time I went to go hunt down "only 3 things" to donate, I would end up organizing an entire room! Last week, I got to restructure my office, which was amazingly cathartic and let me move things into more accessible areas!
This is the perfect time to get a head start on our Core-antine Ab Challenge starting tomorrow! (Sign up here if you haven't already!!) Abs are made in the kitchen, not so much in the gym. Sure, it'll take making your abs stronger and bigger in order to see them better, but if you've got a layer of fat over them, no one will see them! Starting out with no sugar is a simple way to cut those extra, dense calories and reset your body into a healthier way of life.
