Workout Wednesday + Chocolate PB Protein Smoothie

If you guys wanna laugh your ass off, watch me attempting to do the single leg squat jumps in the video below. SO BRUTAL! But our frisbee technique… I have one word: Solid.

This is the first time Ashton and I have really worked out together in a year (since Rio!), and it’s crazy to think about because we used to work out together EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

Since you guys have been asking me to share some of the workouts we’ve been doing lately, here ya go!  We were thinking in the fall (after my marathon is over), it might be fun to make up a weekly high-intensity workout to do together and share with you guys. Thoughts? Would you be interested in this?

To do this, we went to the turf fields in Eugene, just south of Hayward Field. One of the roads around there also has a hill that we wanted to use. Here’s the workout:

The Warm Up

2 lap run around the turf field, agility drills (carioca, side shuffles, high knees, backward running, skipping), and some strides.

The Workout

  1. 100M run –> jumping jacks (x 10) –> 100M run –> TRX single leg squat jumps (x 5/leg) –> square shuttle run –> TRX rocking plank core (x 10) –> square shuttle run –> 100M hill sprint –> jog back (2 MIN RECOVERY)
  2. 100M run –> push ups –> 100M run –> TRX pull ups (x 10) –> square shuttle run –> TRX 3 motion swings (x 5 each way) –> square shuttle run –> 100M hill sprint –> jog back (2 MIN RECOVERY)
  3. 100M run –> burpees (x 10) –> 100M run –> TRX hammy curls (x 10) –> square shuttle run –> TRX double arm fly (x 10) –> square shuttle run –> 100M hill sprint –> jog back (1.5 MIN RECOVERY)
  4. 100M run –> boat to low boat (x 12) –> 100M run –> TRX oblique raises (x 10/side) –> square shuttle run –> TRX seated to inverted plank (x 10) –> square shuttle run –> 100M hill sprint –> jog back (1.5 MIN RECOVERY)
  5. 100M run –> v-ups –> 100M run –> TRX pikes (x 10) –> square shuttle run –> pull ups/mountain climbers (x 30) –> square shuttle run –> 100M hill sprint –> jog back (1.5 MIN RECOVERY)

The Cool Down

We tried to play frisbee but failed miserably. Basically we didn’t do one.

The Food

We got home and demolished this Chocolate PB Protein Smoothie. A bit of sweetness with 40 grams of protein per serving to help repair the muscles from all those shitty squat jumps.
