A few Sample Workouts

I was looking at the site and realized that my sample workouts section is looking pretty bare.
So, we need to fix this!!!  Here are three different workouts I recommended to one of my clients to get in/stay in good condition on the days we are not meeting.

This is a simple circuit. Easy but effective. If you want to make it more intense then try not to stop until you are finished. Additionally feel free to add to or decrease to the amount of reps according to your skill level.
Warmup (Jumping jacks, jumping rope, jogging, etc..whatever you prefer)
A) Pushups, ( Always change your hand positions to hit the muscle group slightly differently)
B) Pullups/Chinups
C) Dips,
D) Situps,
So once your workout starts its simply 10A, 10B, 10C, 20D. Keep repeating the circuit until you have finished atleast 100Pushups-à200Situps.  Try not to rest until you finish your situps. You can take a slight break at the end of each circuit.

Workout 2

7mins of Burpees as many reps as you can complete. This is a very tough workout. It is short and sweet
But intense as hell. Keep count of how many reps you complete and write it down. Everytime you perform this workout try to beat your old number of reps. 

Not much to say about these. Start in a standing position, hop into the air, drop down into a plank position, do a pushup, and hop back up! If you want to still crank up the intensity then jump up with a knee tuck at the top of your jump!


Workout 3 
 This is another circuit type of workout. This is good as a warmup, a finisher or a full workout depending on your skill level. 

A) Pushups
B) Pullups/Chinups
C) Dips
D) Double leg lifts (Put your legs in a straight line, bring parallel to the ground and raise them up to almost a v position and slowly lower them to about 6 inches above the ground and then back up again. )
This workout is the pyramid. Start with 1A 1B 1C 1D, then 2A 2B 2C 2D --à 10A 10B 10C 10D then go back down the ladder. 9A 9B 9C 9Dà1A 1B 1C 1D

More to come...
