500 Workout

If you follow me on Facebook, you know that I created a workout yesterday called “500″ that I was dedicating to my Facebook fans as a thank you for getting me to 500 “likes” recently.  I wanted the workout to consist of 500 reps and I wanted it to be something that everyone can do ANYWHERE. 

I headed to my backyard and kicked this workout’s butt…for YOU, my Facebook “likers”.  :)

Here it is..

You do all of the exercises in a row, and then repeat.  By the end of this workout, you will have done 500 reps!

The whole workout took me only 10 minutes to do, so there’s no excuse not to give this a shot!

My average heart rate was 163 and my max was 178 so it really kept my heart rate up! I burned 108 calories in just 10 minutes :)

Rapid Squats: Stand with feet shoulder width apart and squat up and down in a quick motion.  During the squat, try to bring your quads parallel to the ground.  Keep your back straight and butt out.

Jump Lunges: One foot in front of the other, squat and jump to switch feet position.

Shoulder Taps: Start in a plank position (both hands on ground, toes on ground).  Raise one arm and touch your opposite shoulder.  Return hand to ground.  Raise other hand and touch opposite shoulder.  Repeat.

Jumping Jacks: Simple every day jumping jacks.  I hope you know what a jumping jack is!

Burpees: Start standing. Bring hands to the ground and jump your feet out behind you in one motion.  Jump feet back up to hands and raise hands up to a jump.

Mountain Climbers: Start in a plan position.  Bring one knee up towards chest (like you’re running) and then back in place.  Bring other knee up towards chest.  Continue in a FAST pace.

Bicycle Crunches: Laying on ground, raise knees and back.  Hands behind head.  Touch one elbow to opposite knee by bringing them together.  Do the same for opposite elbow and knee.  Your legs will move in a bicycle like motion and your upper body will be twisting back and forth.

High Knees: Standing, jog in place but bring your knees up as high as you can every time you switch feet.

Butt Kicks: Standing, jog in place but make your heels touch your butt every time you switch feet.

Push-Ups: Regular push-ups. 

If you try my 500 workout, please leave a comment here and let me know what you think!!!

It’s also the Indy 500 weekend this weekend…what a coincidence ;)

Now…if I do this for 500 “likes” on Facebook..I wonder what I’ll come up with when I get to 1000?!?! I’m scared!
