Steve is taking an extra long holiday and since he's been home with me I've been bouncing ideas off of him for workouts. This afternoon we were discussing workout possibilities and we decided to make a themed workout, since today is January 5th it became the day of fives. We did 5 reps of each exercise and 5 rounds of each set. We did this because sometimes when you look at your whole workout it can seem impossible BUT if you just think about the next 5's easy!  Here's what we did:

5 rounds of:
5 Windmill followed by 5 snatch on each side

5 rounds of 5 burpees

5 rounds of:
5 rows feet together (each sides)
5 rows with one foot back (each sides)
5 rows with one foot in the air (each sides)

5 rounds of 5 burpees

5 rounds (without stopping) of:
5 double handed swings, 5 swings right, 5 swings left, 5 alt swings

5 rounds of:
5 cleans, 5 presses, 5 clean & press (each side)

At the end we were tired but smiling because together we finished a pretty intimidating workout, one which we all agreed we could not push ourselves to do on our own but together and in sets of five it didn't seem so impossible.


  1. I love this workout Julie. So creative and challenging! I've done "dirty thirty" and "lucky sevens" but I like the "high fives" too! I'm sure it was a great workout for everyone. Nice.

  2. Thanks! I'd like to hear more about "dirty thirty" and "lucky sevens", sounds interesting! :)
