Workout of the Week #1

Workout of the Week (WOW)

Diversifying your weekly routine

I would like to introduce a great way into changing your training regimen. It’s called the Workout of the Week or WOW for short. This is a way for people to break out of their routine, diversify their training, maybe jumpstart their routine, and (hopefully) bring some excitement back into exercise.

Every week I will post a new workout that people can plug into their regular routine or build a routine around. It is similar to a workout of the day (WOD) except I don’t tell you what to do everyday, just give you something new to try once a week.
