Hello again, fitness freaks and fitness haters! IT'S FRIDAY! End your week right. Get off your ass, grab your sneakers/cleats/ball & go get better..cause if you don't, someone else will. You're given 24 hours each day. Make them worth it.
Here is our second installment of Just Sweat It: Fitness Challenge numero dos. While the previous fitness challenge focused a lot on change of direction (both laterally and linearly) this one will focus on 2 aspects of fitness; Long sprint endurance and body weight plyometrics.
So c'mon, this should only take approximately 40 minutes total, aka the amount of time you daily stalk Alex Morgan's Instagram (don't deny it, we all do).
This work-out is called Crazy Eights, and you will be using the lines of the soccer field as your measurements.
You will start out at the bottom right corner of the soccer field. You will be moving at THREE speeds.
This is ONE REPETITION.
Each repetition should take about 2 minutes or so.
IMMEDIATELY after each repetition, you will perform the plyometric/circuit pattern below as fast as you can. (watch the video below for how to correctly perform each exercise.)
(Your legs will be a little woozy after the sprints, so this quick little circuit should be killer if done immediately after the rep is finished)
Then, yes, just what you wanted, REST. 2 full minutes.
You will perform this figure-8 sprint pattern a total of 6 TIMES.
"The first step in achieving your goal is to take a moment to respect your goal.
Know what it truly means to you to achieve it."
