Workout for Monday, July 13th
For today’s session the focus is on running conditioning and core strength. You will need an area you can jog and sprint on, ideally a flat surface such as a running track or sports field. The treadmill can be used as an alternative but isn’t our first choice.
Begin with the warm-up and take it easy on the broad jumps, this isn’t a max effort here. Rest 2 minutes before beginning the first phase of the workout.
Once you have completed the 1st phase, rest 2 minutes before beginning the 2nd phase. This 2nd phase is all about control, you will start in plank position arms straight. It's harder than it looks so make sure you breathe and really focus on control.
