Indy 500 Fat Loss Workout

 In Uncategorized

Where in the heck did the month of May go?

This past few weeks have flown by and we are already at Memorial Day weekend and of course the Indy 500!

I am not really a race fan, I don’t get it.  I think that these drivers and their pit crew are exceptional athletes however.  Some people might disagree but I can only imagine the forces the drivers withstand for hours at a time and the endurance that they must have to perform with focus and perfection so that they don’t crash.  The pit crew has to be quick, agile, and strong when a tenth of a second might make the difference between crossing the line first or in the middle of the pack at each pit stop.

Do honor these guys I have created two Indy 500 workouts!

These workouts are brutal tests of endurance and focus.  One of them is a bodyweight workout that you can perform anywhere and the other is a KB workout that is sure to put even the most fit of our readers to the test.

Bodyweight Indy 500 Workout-

50 Squats

20 Push Ups

40 Alternating Reverse Lunges

100 Jump Ropes

20 Burpees

20 Inverted Rows

50 Mountain Climbers

30 Rolling Planks

20 Good Mornings

100 Jump Ropes

20 Core Rows

30 Burpees
The goal is to get through all 500 reps as quickly as possible.   You must complete all the reps of one exercise before moving to the next.  There is not rest period built in, but it is assumed that you may not be able to complete all the reps without stopping.   This workout is meant for higher level intermediate to advanced trainees.  If you are a beginner you might start with ½ of the recommended reps and work your way up to completing the Indy 500 workout!

If you have a Kettlebell, this can even be done with a dumbbell, at home or where you are performing this workout the KB Indy 500 is a brutal workout.

Kettlebell Indy 500 Workout-

50 Snatches – 25 each arm

50 Cleans – 25 each arm

50 High Pulls- 25 each arm

50 Goblet Squats

50 Rows – 25 each arm

50 Burpee Deadlifts

200 Swings

Again the goal is to complete this as quickly as possible with as little rest as possible.  You can rest during each movement as needed.   It is highly recommended that you stick to the bodyweight version if you have not been well coached in kettlebell skills or do not have some experience with them.
These workouts are sure to give you a little boost over the Memorial Day weekend and a great new workout to add to your arsenal of at home or travel workouts.

Give them a try and let me know what you think.
