Day 8: Step Yo Game Up!

Step yo game upIt time to Step Yo Game Up Core Crew!

It’s Friday!!! Day 8 and week 2 of our April Challenge means it’s time to step it up to three rounds of 10 and add another 25 crunches to each day. You CAN do this! Do not doubt your self or make excuses!

We all love arm day and Friday is the perfect time to rest our legs and focus on getting our arms strong and powerful to carry us through those long runs…and to work towards those toned, sexy arms we all want.

Day 8 exercises: “How to” videos

  • 50 Jumping Jacks
  • Bicep Curl + Overhead Press – 3 sets of 10
  • Front Arm Raise – 3 sets of 10
  • Side Arm Raise – 3 sets of 10
  • Plank – :30 – 1 minute (2X)
  • 50 Crunches

I like to put the front and side arm raises together to form one exercise. It’s your choice… do what is best for you then remember to stretch out those arms afterward. Arm stretches are below.

Bonus: #BurningGuns Burning Guns

Feel like you want to push a little harder today? Check out this Burning Guns workout and let us know how many rounds you had in you.

Long runs and lots of racing going on this weekend. Tell us what’s on your schedule so we can cheer you on!

If you didn’t get in your speed work this week.. don’t worry…you’ll have another chance this week. Get in short easy runs today…or rest up for the weekend.

One last important thing…take time to get in the 7 Key Stretches for Runners today. Your quads, hamstrings, glutes, calves, and IT-Band will think you!

That’s it for now Core Crew…make it a great day! 🙂
