August 7th Tuneup Workouts!



2 minutes of jump rope.

  • 1 minute on two feet
  • 30 seconds on right leg
  • 30 seconds on left leg

Run Drill:

10 X 400 Meter Challenge

Choose your course for a 400 meter run. This can be one lap around a track or something equal to about a quarter of a mile.

You will run 400 meters for time (this should be a hard effort, but by no means an all out sprint).

Rest for 2 minutes.

Run 400 meters again for time.

For every second you were “off” from your original time (+ or -), you will perform a burpee.

Ex: If you ran your first 400 meters in 2:15 and the second 400 meters in 2:12, you’ll do 3 burpees.

Burpees should be done immediately after the run.

Rest for 2 minutes.

Repeat for 8 more rounds, tacking your burpee penalty to the end of each run.

Mobility Exercise:

3 minutes legs up on the wall.

2 minutes (per side) quad foam roll.
