Some of our evening class “Team 1800” doing the ‘walking lunges of death’ workout (a workout with over 400m of weighted walking lunges).
Workout – This one is great when you don’t have any equipment (such as when you are in a hotel, in a waiting room, incarcerated, etc), but you want to work on strength and not just push ups and air squats.
As many rounds as possible in 15 minutes:
5 one legged squats (aka pistols) right leg
5 one legged squats (aka pistols) left leg
5 handstand push ups
Use a wall (counter top, etc) for balance or assistance on the pistols. And a wall for balance on the HSPUs.
Post number of rounds completed to comments.
