There were three distinctly different wacky workouts in Part 2 of our Trainer Training. These sessions were not as structured, but brought something different to the table, which is great for making your sessions interesting [read: wacky!] and FUN!
Workout one was Tricia’s Partner Training. This session is an all-over workout, with cardio to boot. Perfect for a couple who cannot get out often enough to train at a gym, or who want to do something together. Characteristic of Tricia’s sessions, it is silly, fun, functional, and really hard!! Trish does 1×100 of each exercise. Today we did 20, as some of the exercises are quite difficult.
|1) Deep squat on your toes – fast medicine ball pass|
|2) High five’s|
|Alternative – high five’s with a push up!|
|3) Single Leg Release – wheelbarrows!|
|Alternative – real Wheelbarrows!|
|4) Deep squat with fitball|
|5) Oblique wrestling! A third party must holler out “left” or “right”, then the wrestlers attempt to pull the other over to that side.|
|6) Balancing on fitball, throw foo foo|
|Alternative – kneeling|
|7) Partnered Pull ups|
|8) Piggy-back shuttle runs!|
|9) Straight line wrestle – attempt to push your opponent back over the line behind them.|
Stay posted next week for Jade’s athletic challenge! With inspiration from a decathlon, the workout is interesting and competitive (and don’t forget wacky!).
