#GutcheckThursday - Workout of the Week - May 4, 2023

Get outside and enjoy the spring weather or stay inside to work on a cardio weakness in a Choose Your Own Adventure style #GutcheckThursday!

Intended Stimulus

A little bit longer & a little bit more moderate than usual, this simple couplet will primarily consist of monostructural movement with a little “break” every 5 minutes to stop & perform some burpees. Push the pace on the burpees knowing your heart rate will level back off once you settle back into your pace on the machine or on the run. Try not to spend longer than 90 seconds each time on the burpees. Faster athletes may potentially flirt with finishing 5k (run/row) or 10k (bike) in the 25 minute time frame

Movement Standards

The burpee finishes at the bottom with chest & thighs touching the ground and at the top by performing a small jump once the hips & knees reach full extension

Adaptations / Modifications / Scales

Reduce the amount of burpees as needed to finish in 1:30 or less

Modify the ROM & impact on the burpee as needed (elevated, step-back to plank, etc.)

Reduce the overall time domain as needed on this workout (AMRAP 20, AMRAP 15, etc.)
