Mr. Barter’s Physical Development session

I hope your legs weren’t too jelly like after last week’s leg basher! This week we are going to get the lungs burning.  Note: there is no rest between the exercises in the round, only at the end of the round.

Round One:     Sprinting on the spot for 20 seconds          tuck jumps x 10          burpees x 10      plank for 20 seconds

Round Two:    Sprinting on the spot for 30 seconds          tuck jumps x 15          burpees x 15      plank for 25 seconds

Round Three:    Sprinting on the spot for 40 seconds          tuck jumps x 20          burpees x 20      plank for 30 seconds

Round Four:    Sprinting on the spot for 50 seconds          tuck jumps x 25          burpees x 25      plank for 35 seconds

Round Five:    Sprinting on the spot for 60 seconds          tuck jumps x 30          burpees x 30      plank for 40 seconds

Rest: Rest for two minutes between rounds.  This a hard session.  So make sure you drink between rounds.  Good luck!

Weekly challenge:  100 down and ups!  Quite simple. Stand fully upright and then lie face down, hands by your sides.  And then repeat.  Make sure you stand up straight and then lie fully flat.  Time yourself to see how long it takes from start to finish.  Tip: do it on a soft surface, ideally not tarmac!

Keep positive and keep learning.
