Repeat this circuit 3 to 5 times and start or end with a 1-3 mile run!
This past Friday we shared this lower body burn out that is sure to keep your heart rate up:
** If you don't have a bench, then you can substitute squat jumps or banded squats for the first move and you can do the prisoner squat step ups from your knees on the floor without a bench.
We all know that running on the tread can get extremely boring, but it can also be fun when you challenge yourself and switch it up every minute! So if you're looking to spice things up, give this tread challenge a try.
Also, side note... if you have ever seen Ives in a Bassline class, you KNOW that she loves dynamic mode. Literally, smiling every single time an instructor say, "We are taking the tread into dynamic mode!" In spirit of her secret love affair with dynamic mode, our finisher is brought to you by the woman herself!
If you aren't familiar with dynamic mode, this means you are pulling the emergency chord off of your tread and pushing the tread with your body weight alone, holding onto the front of the tread. If you can't do dynamic mode on your tread, no worries, it's just the finisher and you can do the same moves (a little differently on the ground) with body weight alone!
Warm-up: 3 minute warm up- walk or jog (above 4.0 on speed) and on a flat road (0.0 incline)
Try this combo of moves in dynamic mode on the tread as shown below, or you can do the same without a tread.
