Intense Labor Day Weekend Warrior Workout

”Labor Day in the United States is a public holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September. It honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country.”

Cue the fireworks, get the beer on ice… it’s Labor Day Weekend!

Which really just means a lovely 3 day weekend for most of us.

Oh, and a weekend of family soaking up the last little bit of summer with bbq and cold drinks. Are you going to be a little overindulgent?

We don’t have huge plans but I do intend to relax and get a lot of work done. Fun, right?

I’m sure there will be some fun tossed in. But for the first time in weeks, we have nothing on our schedule!

I thought that with the holiday, this was the perfect time to share a new Weekend Warrior Workout.

If you haven’t seen one of my Weekend Warrior Workouts before, it’s basically a normal workout but on steroids.

Here are the previous ones: 

The weekend warriors… those that push just a bit harder on the weekend than during the week. Mayber a harder workout, maybe a much longer workout, whatever your weekend warrior heart desires.

Warrior Workouts are tough but crazy fun! And since this is Labor Day weekend (9/8/15), we’re going to stick to a theme and really make sure to celebrate WORKing Out!

With 3 days of no work, you should easily be able to find the time to complete it once, right?

Candlestick Burpees

At the end of the prisoner squat, drive the back leg up to the chest. Then step back down and return to the next prisoner squat.

Forward Backward Jumps

From the landing of the forward jump, immediately squat and jump backwards. Trying to land where you started. Of course, when adding the backward jump, the forward doesn’t need to be so far and explosive.

V-Sits

Bring both legs up simultaneously. Mount Climbers (x3 = 45 reps)

And yes, though I can’t do all of these exercises, I will be doing my own version! I’m actually pretty pumped for the challenge.
