Today I’m sharing a workout with you that combines strength training and plyometrics as well as sharing how you can stay fresh and dry through this sweaty workout.
I love interspersing plyometric exercises into my clients workouts as well as my own. They are a great way to train power and speed while also driving the heart rate up.
The workout I’m sharing today features a strength training exercise followed immediately by a plyo exercise targeting the same muscle group.
One thing I love about plyo exercises is that they never fail to get me sweating!
Recently, I’ve been using dry sprays from CVS to keep me feeling fresh and dry. Between teaching hot yoga, practicing hot yoga and my own workouts at the gym, I need a product I can count on. With these dry sprays it just takes one quick spray that goes on instantly dry. Added benefit, there’s no clothing transfer and one application can last up to 48 hours (although I always reapply after I shower).
I often go straight from the gym to the studio to teach (or vice versa) and no one wants a smelly trainer or yoga teacher. Whether you’re heading out for a workout or just have a long day at work or running errands ahead of you, these dry sprays will power you through. One can can last up to 8 weeks! They also offer formulas for the guys and Dove, Degree and Axe all offer men’s dry sprays.
If you’d like to learn more about these dry sprays, visit the CVS website for product benefits and educational videos.
Okay, back to how you can get sweaty to test out the dry sprays for yourself. (And there’s a giveaway at the end of the post!)
Here’s your workout. I programmed the back and forth between strength and plyo to give you time for active recovery. I’m also alternating upper and lower body movements, which will also help you maintain a steady effort throughout. The strength exercises are pretty straight forward but some of the plyo movements might be unfamiliar so I made a quick video with a demo of all the exercises.
And here’s a photo guide to go along with it.
Clearly I’m feeling very resourceful today! 🙂
If you’re new to plyo movements, take it easy to start. Be mindful if you have injuries as jumping movements may not be the best choice for you. Always ask your doc if you’re feeling unsure about adding anything new to your workout routine. As always, I’d love your feedback if you give this a try.
And I’m giving away a $25 CVS gift card so that you can #trydry for yourself.
