Your workout instructions this week? Take advantage of this beautiful weather and get outside for a run, people! Find your favorite running trail (we’ve got a ton of great options here), grab a running buddy, and get moving.
During your run, you’re going to make a few pit stops — every few minutes, you’ll stop at at a bench, a big rock or some stairs — to do a strength-training circuit one time through. Then get back to your run, and stop again in a few minutes for another round. Aim to do the circuit five times throughout the course of your run — and more if you’re feeling ambitious.
See the strength-training circuit below. Happy trails, friends! Read more »

This week’s workout is a test of your speed and power. Choose weights on the heavier side, and get ready to work your way down a repetition ladder, starting with 10 reps of each exercise, then eight reps, then six, then four, and finally two.
Move quickly between exercises, with little rest, but be sure to maintain good form. You have three different exercise circuits, so complete the entire rep ladder for Circuit 1 before moving on to Circuit 2. Between each repetition round, take a 30-second break. Between each circuit, take a one-minute break.
Here are your exercises. Read more »
