So, I think I'm funny. I'm pretty sure I'm not, but I still like to think I am. Hubby and I joined a new gym a few months ago and I've been putting together workouts for us. I named one of them "squat"squatch (you Sasquatch?), mostly because it is a beast! Saying "squat"squatch makes me laugh...and it makes my husband role his eyes. I don't care, I still think I'm hilarious!

Here are 2 of my most recent workouts (and their very clever names).

Sets for Sweat

plyo/cardio portion

1 min work, 10 sec rest, 3 rnds

jump rope
mountain climbers (each toe tap counts as 1)
switch jump lunges
box jumps

now the strength portion

15-10-5 reps

bicep curls
tricep row

The idea with this strength portion is to increase weight amount while decreasing reps

Our numbers for the plyo portion (didn't keep track of jump rope)

Hubs round 1: 110, 40, 13, 16; round 2: 110, 45, 13, 17; round 3: 102, 48, 13, 16
Me round 1: 128, 45, 11, 17; round 2: 110, 44, 11, 17; round 3: 100, 37, 10, 16

Lower-body Killer ft. "Squat"squatch

1 min jump rope
1 min wall sit
1 min 1 leg speed stepups (each leg) w/ 20 lbs
1 min side leg lift (each leg)
1 min hold superman
1 loop around the gym walking lunges w/ 16 lbs. (1 loop around my gym = about 140 lunges)

3 rnds (only do walking lunges 2x)

Now, for the workout you've all been waiting for..."squat"squatch!!!
