Regardless, this workout was GREAT because it was quick yet effective and it hit all major muscle groups. All in all, we were in the gym for an hour. And it was an EFFICIENT sweatfest of an hour! Try this out and track your time!
MONSTER Monday Workout 11.5.12
- ARC Trainer 30 mins as cardio warm-up [ you can do another type of cardio warmup but my favorite is the ARC trainer because it gets my hips & posterior chain awake and ready to move!]
5 Rounds for Time
- 5 pull-ups [if you’re still working your way up to full pull-ups, you can do a timed “hang” on the pull-up bar or do inverted body weight rows]
- 10 DB deadlifts [we used 30lb DB’s]
- 10 pushups
- 10 Burpees
