My Birthday Workout

It’s my birthday! Well, it was my birthday…two days ago. Sorry for the delay, but I’ve been lost in a post-birthday-party haze (aka I’ve been recovering from being drunk.) But anyway, let’s rewind back to the 17th, the 27th anniversary of the day I escaped from my mother’s womb. I don’t know about you, but to me birthdays mean you have a free ticket to do whatever you want. Well, this whole week has been “do whatever I want” week since I’m on vacation. Perhaps it would be more accurate to say that I have free ticket to make people do what I want. And I wanted them to workout with me.

So I dragged a reluctant David and a not-so-reluctant Chris to the park for a morning workout. I recorded the routine, but unfortunately my camera is not that great and the video came out super grainy. Instead, I wrote out the routine here with links describing the exercises if you are inclined to try it.

Do each movement for the prescribed time, then go on to the next exercise without stopping to rest.

Squats – 2 minutes
Plank – 1 minute
Step-up to bench (alternate legs each time you step) – 2 minutes
Plank – 1 minute
Reptile plank – 2 minutes
Easy mountain climber (do exercise as described in the video, but put your hands on a bench) – 2 minutes
Bench Dips – 2 minutes
Bench pushups – 2 minutes
One-leg hip raise – 1 minute per leg.

Doing the whole thing once is good, but twice is better 😉

And of course I undid all the positive effects of exercising by drinking numerous alcoholic beverages later that evening. Whatever! It was my birthday. I can get stinkin’ drunk buzzed if I want to!
