Workout of the Day - The Accumulator Extreme

Check out this is a great routine for a strength/interval workout. The idea is to choose about 10 excercises or more (depending on how much time you have), complete each round for a determined number of reps or time and add an exercise in the next round with very little to no rest in between. As each round progresses, start with the first exercise (from Round #1) and work through each one until all exercises & all reps/time have been completed.

Example:

Round #1 - 10 Pushups
Round # 2 - 10 Pushups, 10 Squats,
Round #3 - 10 Pushups, 10 Squats, 10 Tricep Kickbacks, etc.

"The Accumlator Extreme"

Goal: Complete 10 rounds, 10 reps or 1-min. of each exercise. Add 1 new exercise/activity each round starting with the first exercise in Round #1.

Challenge: Finish this workout in under 30-minutes and BRING IT!!

Round #1 - 10 Pushups (any variation)

Round #2 - 10 Squats

Round #3 - 10 Tricep Kickbacks (both arms)

Round #4 - 10 Lateral Skiers (R to L - or - L to R counts as 1 rep)

Round #5 - 10 DB Front/Lateral Raise DB Swings

Round #6 - Plank (1-minute)

Round #7 - 10 Mountain Climbers

Round #8 - 10 Hammer Curls with 1/4 Squats

Round #9 - 10 Dymanic Lunges

Round #10 - Knee-In Crunches (1-minute)

Crank it & have fun!

Love these workouts. I do these with my class and have them do each exercise for 80 seconds. Man....it's a killer but they love them. Nice job!
