Full Body Interval Workout

March 19, 2012

in Blog, News, Facts, Fitness, Workouts

Hey everyone! Well the vacation is officially over.  15 hours of travel, and 3 flights later, we’re finally home!

For today’s “News, Facts, Fitness Monday” post, I wanted to do another quick workout, as some of you have been asking for them.  I’ve been getting such great feedback on my Facebook Page with all the neat workouts I’ve been finding on Pinterest, so I wanted to create one for you too!

You could easily do this at home, as all you need is dumbbells or do it at the gym too.  If you want to do it at home and you don’t have dumbells, you could easily do it without them too.  If you’re a beginner, take more rest than the 30 seconds if you need it.

If you’re feeling good, you can go ahead and do this entire workout 1-4 times through (depending on the amount of time that you have).

If you’re not sure what an exercise is, check Google, or leave a comment below and I will provide a link to a video or photo of someone doing it.

Let me know how you like it!  See you tomorrow with a new recipe 🙂

    I’m wondering what skaters are as well as burpees with pushups? doesn’t a burpee naturally kind of have one already in it?

      Hey Beth! Here’s how you do the skaters: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4RuxhVJ4-pg As for the burpee, you’ll want to start the burpee, and end up in plank position, then from there do a full pushup. Some versions of burpees have pushups in them, and some don’t. Hope that helps!

    Great workout , Kristine, thanks! 2.5 times in 30 minutes, does sound about the right timing? I am taking a day off from running and wanted to try something new, and this was fun too. I’m not sure about the difference between the burpees with pushups and walkouts with pushups. Is it the jump back in the brupees? Thanks!

    Ooooo.. love me good workouts. What is a volleyball block? need to check that out. thank you!

      Hey Christine! With a volleyball block, you just crouch down into a proper squatting position and jump up with your hands above your head. Just like you see the volleyball players do at the net 😉 Hope that makes sense.
