Family Workout – Motivation happens when a family works out together

While in Asheville visiting cousins, we decided that the day was perfect for a bit of sweat, fun, and fitness.  There may have been some initial whining, but the team stepped up to the plate and we had a great time.  Here is a 30-40min workout for you and your family….

Modifications –

  1. walk instead of run,
  2. forget the weights and focus on form,
  3. take out the push ups
  4. do push-ups on knees
  5. if you hate burpees just take out the push ups, or only do the push ups

Warm up
