Yesterday was a real fun one on the group fitness front. My RPM class was rockin’ with a full class and lots of energy, and my TBC class was extra fun because I did a little “themed” workout that I think my members really enjoyed. We’re near the end of spring training season here in Arizona, and baseball season officially starts soon so I thought a baseball themed workout would be kinda fun to mix things up a bit.
Since the workout seemed to be a hit with my class, I thought I’d share it with you guys as well! It’s a workout you could use in a group fitness setting, or you could take it outside and do it with a few friends, or you could modify it a bit and do it by yourself in the weights room or at home. I know it’s been way too long since I’ve shared a workout with you guys on here, so it’s about time!
So this is how it works… Start at the pitcher spot and perform deadlifts to upright rows for 60 seconds, choose a cardio exercise from the cardio options to do for 30 seconds, move on to first base and complete push presses for 60 seconds, choose a different cardio exercise from the cardio options to do for 30 seconds, and so on and so forth. Take a short break after you get through all the bases and repeat the circuit for a 15-20 minute workout. (Make sure you switch legs at second base when you do the lunges for the second time.)
Below are links to videos of some of the exercises that may not be as well known:
As always, please talk to your doctor before starting a new fitness regimen!
I tried to get a little clever and add in some exercises that pertained to “baseball”. For example, diamond push ups (for a baseball diamond – get it?), deadlift to upright row is KIND of like you’re going to start to pitch the ball (or something like that?), lunges like you’re going to steal a base (kinda sorta – ha!), and jump squats when you get to home base because you’re excited. Clever one over here.
I hope you guys have fun with this one! This workout would be a great one to get outdoors to do with some friends as the weather warms up. Enjoy!
I’m off to Bible study this morning and then work and laundry are the on the agenda for later this afternoon. I’ll see you tomorrow for a pregnancy update!
