As a competitive athlete, spending two entire weeks locked down in Hawaii's mandatory 14 day quarantine, I was in desperate need to stay healthy, fit, and sane without my training group or a gym. Here's one of my simple and fast fat-burning workouts that everyone should try! No gym required, and only three pieces of equipment needed. This workout will take about 50 minutes to 1 hour. It's an uber sweaty training session, but a fantastic way to put you in a better mood...RELEASE THOSE ENDORPHINS!!
Let's get into the workout!
1) Jump rope
2) Free Tabata timer app on your phone (I suggest "Interval Timer-HIIT workouts in the App store)
3) Water bottle
4) A good attitude!
5) *optional* I like to throw my AirPods in and listen to some upbeat music. In my experience, it helps me jump rope faster. So if you want to expedite the workout, crank those tunes!
2,000 jump ropes or, advanced challenge, 1,000 double unders (two rotations in one swing)
How to break up the jump ropes:
4 x 500s OR (modified) choice breakup of 100s, 200s, or 300s
*NOTE: Try to break up the jump ropes into at least groups of 100*
20 minute burpee challenge
How to break up the burpees:
1 up by 1 burpee per minute OR (advanced challenge) 2 up by 2 burpees
*This means 1 burpee x 1 minute intervals for 20 minutes OR (advanced challenge) 2 burpees x 1 minute intervals for 20 minutes
Keep in mind-
Don't forget to stretch and/or foam roll and replenish those electrolytes!
Congratulations, you just completed an awesome workout!
