Have you seen the 5 X 50 workout?

Sunday, February 26, 2012

So -- I was browsing through some pictures posted on other chat threads/ forums and ran across this.... 5 x 50 workout.

I CANNOT do 5 circuits of these in a row nor even complete 50 in a row of a couple things at this time, but it seems a 'quick and easy' ....go-to idea for squeezing in mini workout sessions throughout the day....

What do you think ...

Has anyone tried this?

    It looks like it's worth a try. It would be good to see what improvement I can make over the course of a month.

    I could do four of these in the pool. Staying on the bottom of the pool to do push-ups doesn't seem possible.

    I love the concept, but would have to switch up some of the exercises. Thanks for posting this idea.

    Thanks for sharing. It seems to be a well-rounded workout.

    Have not seen or would take a miracle for me to do even one pushup! Guess I'll just stick with my water aerobics! emoticon

    I do some of this by 'attaching' them to my chores.... I do an equal number of squats, calf raises & jumping jacks every time I do the laundry... which is usually 2-3 loads daily... I am planning on figuring out something else to work in crunches and arm work once this habit is pretty set :-)

    I've seen quite a few similar workouts posted on Pinterest lately. The good thing about them is that the numbers make it easy to remember. If you're able to do that number of reps and sets, you'll get a good cardio workout. But I think we also need to focus on doing the exercises with proper form. Doing fewer reps with good form prevents injury and will also bring good results.

    I haven't seen this, but I like the concept. I could accomplish the squats, jumping jacks, mountain climbers and crunches....the push up will have to be against the wall. emoticon
