Today I am really excited to try Zuzana's "Touch It Exercise Challenge".  I hope she continues on with these great workouts and challenges.  This is my style of working out, I love it!

Touch It! Exercise Challenge


Workout Breakdown

Time: 30min.
Workout Type: Count Down Challenge
Exercises: 2
  • Sumo Jumps & Sumo High Knees Exercise Combomaximum sets
  • Moderate Pace Skipping 20 minutes

1. Set your Gymboss Interval Timer to count down 10 minutes for you. Your goal is to complete as many sets of the Sumo Jumps & Sumo High Knees Exercise Combo as possible during the 10 minutes.

2. Reset your timer to count down 20 minutes, play your favourite music and skip with your jump rope at a moderate pace. You can change up the style of skipping as much as you wish, just keep the heart rate up for the entire 20 minutes.

Wow oh wow!  This was killer.  Amazing that only 10 minutes can be so brutal.  My quads were on FIRE!

Zuzana's score was 41 sets  in 10 minutes

My SCORE: 40 sets in 10 minutes!  Yes!  I felt great!  Sore but great!

The skipping rope was a bit boring.  I was trying to change it up, running in place, boxing moves, etc.
I finished this workout with:
AB Wheel - 20 reps - full extension.  I felt like I needed to work my shoulders and back.
