Workout Wednesday

The Shuttle Workout 

It’s easy to get stuck in a lifting routine and neglect cardio. Likewise, its easy to get caught in the cardio trap and neglect strength training. The truth is, both are important and can help you achieve health and fitness goals. If you’re a runner, strength training can improve stride and economy during long runs.  If you love to lift but need to mix it up, this workout may help keep you fresh and get you some cardio while you’re at it.

What you’ll need:

  • 3 cones
  • 1 bench (for triceps  dips)
  • 1 set of weights

Place the cones in a straight line about 20 yards apart. Complete the exercise at cone 1 then transition to cone 2 (each circuit has a special transition). Complete the exercise at cone 2 and transition to cone 3. After you have finished the exercises jog back to the start. Complete each circuit 3X. Try to complete the each round as quickly as possible before moving to the next. Take 1 min-2 min rest between each section.

Here’s the workout. Hope you enjoy it!
