The workout this week is best done on a track, but have no fear: A treadmill will work just fine, too. Here’s the deal: First, you’ll do 20 reps of six different exercises. When you’re done with those, you’ll run around the track as fast as you possibly can (or run .25 miles on the treadmill). Repeat this circuit as many times as you can in 30 minutes for a quick workout that will totally kick your butt. And don’t forget to warm up before you get started! Good luck, Be Wellers!

This week, your workout is going to be short and fast—but that doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy.  The challenge is to work as fast and as hard as you can to push yourself through the exercises so that you have nothing left to give at the end.

You’ll complete 20 reps of each exercise for the first round, 15 reps for the second and 10 reps for the third. Pick your weights accordingly, and get going. Since there are only five exercises in each round, try not to take breaks. I’m betting you could finish this entire workout in less than 15 minutes.

Here’s what it’s going to look like.

This week’s workout is going to challenge your speed, endurance and perseverance. The goal: to push yourself even when you want to stop.

There will be three interval rounds in this workout. For the first round, you’ll do 25 reps of four exercises, with a 30 sec sprint between each. In Round 2, you’ll have four pairs of two exercises, performing 15 reps each, with a 30 second sprint between each pair. The final round will be four groups of three exercises, 10 reps each, with a 30 second sprint in between.

Sound confusing? It’s easy—promise. The workout builds on itself, so once you have the basic pattern in your head, you’re golden. And remember, you can do the sprint any way you’d like: outside on a track or field, or indoors on a treadmill, bike or elliptical. If you’re headed outdoors, swap dumbbells for a resistance band.

Here’s what the workout looks like.

During this week’s BeWOW workout, you’re going to push yourself to the limit, working as fast as you can and pushing yourself as hard as you can. Here’s the deal: You’ll do 10 reps of five exercises, and the goal is to make it through the set five times. Doesn’t sound too bad, huh? Here’s the catch: Since you’re only doing 10 reps of each exercise, you’re going to use heavier weights than usual. Don’t go nuts, though: Make sure to choose a manageable, yet challenging, weight. Remember: The faster you work, the sooner you’ll be done. So hop to it, Be Wellers!
