You hear that they don’t just happen they’re made so like I said I’m a little excited because I’m at my odl high school.It’s getting warm outside this is going to be a track bleacher workout. You know what I mean. You know because everyone has a local high school or junior high.

You’re going to get really awesome workout get a little bit of sunshine and you’re going to be a heart rate up and it’s going to be way more effective than just going on the Olympic goal for an hour so there are some things that this workout is going to tackle and it’s the 4 Cs and it’s going to be cardio, circuit, core, and compound movements and all of those combined is going to offer you a great well rounded workout that you can just do on a day that you’re like you know what I want to get outside. Alright so let’s get started. What you’re going to do is you’re going to start with one lap running on the track or if you’re a beginner you can do a fast walk. Alright I’m going to hit it. Okay so I just got down right in my lap. What I want you guys to do is try and do 4 of these rotations of what I’m going to show you know, so we just got done with the cardio and now we’re going to do the circuit with the compound movements so we’re putting those 2 Cs together. So I’m going to show you a combination that you’re going to be doing after each set of your cardio. So first we’re going to start, you’re going to be facing the bleachers. You’re going to put one foot up on there and we’re going to be doing walking lunges, it’s going to target the but the hamstrings, the quads everything you’re going to feel it so what I want you to do hands on you hips face forward, squat down and walk and walk. Keep the head up. You can put your arms up your side if you’re new at this and you want to keep your balance. Okay, once you get to the top and I want you to lunge of to the side. This is hitting the adductors, abductors, hips, gluts. You got all those muscles to gluts. You got the gluteus minimus, maximus, midius all that good stuff but keep those heels down. Push through, okay. Now what I want you to do is walk up another time, come right back down the opposite way so you’re hitting the other leg as well you know because you want both legs to be nice and sexy. Okay so we did those compound movements incorporating them in with our circuit. A circuit requires more than one movement right so you can do push ups right here on the bleachers. You can do them elevated do an incline. Crystal you must have fell there, are you okay. So you can do them over here you want to make it harder do them down here but I want you whatever pushups I want you to do I want you to challenge yourself and I want you to go until you can’t do anymore so if your goal is 12 maybe push it to 15, okay so you want your arms to be shoulder width apart. We’re hitting the abs too along with the chest and upper body. Hitting all those motions, all those areas. Okay so like I said I want you to go to failure, I want you to make sure that you’re pushing yourself and then immediately I want you to go into a tricep dip. This is great for the triceps behind the arm as well as the shoulders and the chest as well. Now to make it a little bit challenging if you’ve done these before then what you want to do is bring the legs straight out. This is going to put more pressure, more challenge o
