Well, the ole’ dress shirts have been getting a bit tight lately so it’s time to kick it up a notch. I have missed doing some longer cardio, and while there are many schools of thought on LSD (long slow distance), the fact is I have missed losing myself on long monotonous runs. On the flip side, this is the strongest I have ever been. Is it possible to have the best of both worlds? Let’s find out!
Here’s to leaning out without losing strength, cheers!
Below is something I had a blast doing while in school, incorporating the treadmill in a circuit for active recovery and improving endurance. It’s just wrong how much I have missed it. You can just as easily substitute a jump rope or, you know, run outside instead of a treadmill (need my fix of ESPN, dont judge!).
1) Run 2 min (5.5MPH/ 1 * Incline)
32kg KB Clean & Jerk 3x/arm
Run 2 min (5.5MPS/ 1 * Incline)
Six Count Burpees 5x
Repeat circuit 10x
Yep, that should sufficiently kick my ass before heading to the office!
