Working Out, Air-Force Style

Oh Bob, Bob, Bob…  funny boy.

I really enjoy that he can make me laugh in a workout… because that’s really what you need when you’re feeling like you can’t go on, and hurt in every way.

Comic relief is essential in life.  At least in MY life.  It’s good medicine.

This week I learned something NEW – which is probably old hat to those in the military…

Bob called it the “Air-Force Style” of training.  It combined circuits of moves, and burpies in-between each circuit.  It looked like this:

Warm up for 5 minutes

4 burpies

ONE MINUTE Right arm presses

4 burpies

ONE MINUTE – Left arm presses

4 burpies

ONE MINUTE – Goblet squats

4 burpies

ONE MINUTE – Jumping lunges

4 burpies

ONE MINUTE – Plank hold


Start with burpies again… and REPEAT 2 MORE TIMES!

Cool Down

Obviously, you can throw in whatever moves you want – but the burpies in-between, sure were a “treat” to look forward to.  (Don’t forget to give a happy jump and clap at the top!)  The entire workout was about 30 minutes, but without instruction – and based on your warm up or cool down you could get it done in 20-25 minutes.

** Also, on the weighted presses – even though you were working ONE arm at a time, you held BOTH weights for balance.

“Blessed is the one who finds wisdom,
    and the one who gets understanding,
for the gain from her is better than gain from silver
    and her profit better than gold.
She is more precious than jewels,
    and nothing you desire can compare with her.
Long life is in her right hand;
    in her left hand are riches and honor.
Her ways are ways of pleasantness,
    and all her paths are peace.”

Proverbs 3:13-17
