Welcome to Week 1, Day 2 of the EBOOST Fitness Holiday Challenge!
Each week we are challenging you to focus on your health and fitness for all 7 days each week, including five days of workouts, one full rest day, and one active rest day. This is by no means a strict plan you need to follow. If you have a current workout routine that you are loving feel free to keep at it because you can still participate in our challenge with the chance to win prizes by posting your images on Instagram and tagging @EBOOST, #eboost, and #fitnessholidaychallenge. Each post is an entry into a chance at winning one of our prizes–Apple Watch Nike+ Series 4, EBOOST gift cards and more! To see the full list of prizes, please check out our Fitness Holiday Challenge Overview blog post.
We will also be sharing recipes each week too to keep you inspired in the kitchen! Now grab your POW and let’s get ready to sweat!
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act but a habit. —Aristotle
Day 2: Cardio Intervals
0:00-5:00 Warm-up walk at 3.0-4.0 mph.
5:00-6:00 Sprint at 6.5-10.0 mph
6:00-7:00 Recover by jogging at 4.0-6.5 mph.
7:00-15:00 Repeat sprint series 4 more times, alternating one-minute sprints with 60-seconds of recovery.
15:00-20:00 Walk briskly to cool down, 3.5-4.5 mph.
Modification: Jog instead of sprint, shorten the sprint time to 30 seconds, or even walk during the recovery minutes.
Challenge yourself: Repeat the sequence more than one skipping the cool down until the very end or shorten your recovery minutes to 30 seconds.
How do you feel? Worked? If you want more of a challenge or have more time, go through the workout again doing one more set of each exercise.
