October Workout Part 1: The Easy Gleason
Don't let the title fool you — The Easy Gleason gets tough quickly! This workout starts you off slow and steady but, before you know it, you're in a mad scramble in a race against the clock. The purpose of The Easy Gleason is to use compound movements that target large amount of muscle mass to develop muscular endurance. Best of all, it incinerates fat during your workout and continues to burn calories long after.
Remember to keep track of your numbers; you can use them as the benchmark to beat next time you do the workout.
With a continuously running clock, do one rep of each exercise the first minute, two reps of each exercise the second minute, three reps of each exercise the third minute, and so on. Continue in that manner until you cannot complete an equal amount of reps for both exercises in one minute. That is one round. Complete two rounds with a five-minute rest in-between.
Exercise A: Body Weight Squat | Exercise B: Push-Up
