OMG. I am so oversharing right now but my butt hasn’t been this sore from a workout since I did my first RX pistol (one leg squat) WOD earlier this year. I knew as soon as I finished this really unique and sneaky challenging workout yesterday that I had to share it with you. It’s an AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) workout of a ton of overhead plate walking lunges along with short runs, shuffles and jumps. When I saw this workout I thought it would be easy but I was so wrong.
At first glance this workout looks like a lot to keep track of but after the first few minutes you get in the groove. That said, the first few minutes are the most challenging and it gets easier as you go. I think your legs just become numb to what you’re doing. 😉
I’m super sore today not only in my glutes but also in my abs. I can only imagine it’s from holding the plate overhead as you lunge and how much stability that requires from your core. Many of you have asked me for more workouts you can do at home/in the gym/with minimal equipment/etc and this is a great one. You could use a dumbbell overhead, a gallon of water or no weight and just use bodyweight and it would be a great workout!
I made a video demoing one round of the workout so you could get an idea of the flow of it. You want to move at a steady pace. Word to the wise…the broad jumps are pretty terrible!
As always, feedback and questions are welcome. Enjoy!
