The Sumo – Workout of the Week (WOW)

June 27, 2010

Your weekly endurance workout challenge.

– Warm up for 10 min

– Walking Lunges with Plates 3 x 30 (70lbs/50lbs).

– Ten 150m sprints with 90 sec rest between every sprint. Sprint time is included in your 90 sec rest!

– Rest 5 minutes


Pick which of the following two exercises you want to start out with first between push-ups and air squats.

For time…

20 squats, 1 push up, 19 squats, 2 push ups, 18 squats, 3 push ups. . . , 3 squats 18 push ups, 2 squats, 19 push ups, 1 squat, 20 push ups.

You can do the same in the reverse order starting with 20 push ups and ending with 20 squats. Remember that you have already done the walking lunges and sprints prior to this workout so choose carefully.

Push ups – full extension at top of the push ups, minimum triceps parallel to back on the way down (push ups from your knees won’t count, not going through the required range of motion will not count either).

Air squats – hips below knees on the way down, standing up straight on the way up (if your butt sticks out or you don’t squat low enough, it doesn’t count).

Post your best times to the comments section.

Due date: July 4th, 2010.
