Workout – 15th June ’10

Planned on doing a conditioning workout at the gym today… but just when I was about to leave I saw this picture of Calvin. Couldn’t resist… had to see him! So drove straight to Vidya’s house. The only equipment available was a pair of dumbbells and so I came up with this workout on the fly…

200 m Run, 30 Pushups

200 m Run, 30 Bodyweight Squats

200 m Run, 15 Jump Squats

200 m Run, 15 Clapping Pushups

200 m Run, 15 Right Hand Dumbbell Snatches (30 lbs)

200 m Run, 15 Left Hand Dumbbell Snatches (30 lbs)

200 m Run, 15 Dumbbell Swings (30 lbs)

200 m Run, 15 Burpees

Boy did I suffer! Today was my first metabolic conditioning workout in 1.5 months (I’ve been on a mass gain program for the last 6 weeks). Though I made pretty awesome strength gains… my endurance sucks ass right now.

I did survive and completed the workout in 17:50. Super sucky timing! Two months back I would’ve smoked this workout in 14:00! Anyways now that I’m back to training for endurance too I’m pretty sure I’ll get to the 14-mark within a month or so.

And yea… I made Vidya do a similar workout too…

400 m Run, 25 Bodyweight Squats

400 m Run, 25 Knee Pushups

400 m Run, 25 Dumbbell Swings (25 lbs)

400 m Run, 25 Burpees

She killed the workout in 19:10. She could’ve done it much quicker if she worked on her running often enough 😉

How about you guys give one of these workouts a shot and post your times?

Now for some awesome post workout dinner.

    Good job Raj. Am sure you will hit your PB soon. 18:50 isnt a bad time either.
    Great job Vidya. You rock!

    Forgot to mention, I did some 400m sprints yesterday and clocked 1:13. Have to improve on that 🙂

    Very inspiring- will you be posting anything for new (late?) starters? Some tips for tummy trimming exercises too please (remember it is for a first timer!).
