Today is the second day of me deciding to start lifing on the weekends. When I got to the gym I saw a bunch of Kinesiology ppl! I guess they all already lift on Saturday mornings haha. I don't think I'll ever be one of those 6 am ppl though... I slept from 11 to 9 and I feel great! haha. Anyway, here's what I did. Adjust the weight to you of course. It didn't take me long which is what I was going for. Don't forget to rest about a minute between sets though so that your muscles have some time to recover in order to gain some strength. One minute might not be enough for total recovery of the muscle but quite frankly I'll get bored if I wait to long. Here we go
I did try to focus on the back mainly because I do many pushups throughout the week for chest. Plus it's always good to work those postural muscles that weaken with increased time at a desk.

So keep in mind that this first part is open to interpretation and you could really do any cardio in between the strength that you wanted. It was actually inspired from a track workout in which you would run 100s between each exercise
Complete the following for TIME
santana push ups and sit ups with should press
students: let me know you know what a tabatta is!

This week we're going to really be focusing on taking our training to another level. I recently saw the XMen movie "First Class." and it really made me wish that I had super powers. So this week we're going to be doing 5 superhero workouts, each focused on a specific mutant.
Our first workout is going to be based on Mystique, the blue, acrobatic, fighting mutant.
Part 1 20 seconds rest- 1 minute work (max intensity) 6 rounds
alternate between the following....
side lunge chop- bring the dumbells on the shoulders or bring the sandbag over the head so that it rests on the shoulders, lunge to the side, bring the weights down, bring the weight back up, lunge to the other side
roll over commando push ups- roll over, push yourself up in one straight line, tuck the right knee in, lay back on your stomach in one straight line, push yourself back up, and tuck the left knee in, lower down, roll over, repeat
Part 2 20 of each X 3 for time
20 each leg: jump lunge kick up- do two jump lunges and on the last one kick the back leg up to the hand in front of the body
20: diving knee tucks- do a dive bomber forward, lift the hips back into a downward dog, tuck the right knee into the chest toward the left, repeat on left
Part 4: Don't rush, focus on form
30 crunches all together: crunch lift off- sit up to the left, sit up to the middle, sit up to the right
bridge pose, alternate between flat feet and balancing on balls of the feet, alternate lifting legs for added challenge http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7arNSJ0QCw
headstand- take your time, this is not a time challenge, try a beginners variation http://video.about.com/yoga/How-To-Do-a-Headstand.htm
