I really don’t like bulgarian split squats.
Not to brag or anything… but I have some pretty impressive lower body strength. There’s nothing like a nice set of bulgarian’s to make me feel like a complete weakling. My poor booty… my poor quads… and by “poor” I obviously mean “lucky” (insert gratitude practice here) because even though they hurt, they are getting stronger!
5 mins on, 1 min rest. 4 rounds. Alternate between Workout 1 and Workout 2
100 m sprint
12 heavy kettlebell swings (heavy for you, but not so much that you start using your lower back to swing)
12 lemon squeezers (sit-ups for beginners, v-ups for advanced)
60 jump rope passes (doubles for all you BA’s out there)
6 burpees (with a true push up, none of this flopping around nonsense)
12 bulgarian split squats (6 on each leg)
Now for some food!
