For this week’s #GutcheckThursday, we’re taking a break from the higher skill partner workouts for a bodyweight hero workout that’s great for the garage, basement, park, or campground!
“Laredo” is named for U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Edwardo Loredo of Houston, TX who was killed on 24JUN2010 in Jelewar, Afghanistan. SSG Loredo is survived by his wife, First Sergeant Jennifer Loredo, their two daughters Laura & Alexis, and son, Eduardo.
This workout will start fast & gradually slow down as fatigue from the squats & lunges slows down your runs and your push-ups grind to a halt. Choose a push-up option that allows you to start each round with 1 large set and move through a few small sets
The air squat finishes at the bottom, hip crease below knee, and at the top with hips & knees in full extension
The push-up finishes at the bottom, chest and thighs contacting the ground, and at the top with elbows in full extension
The walking lunge finishes at the bottom, trail knee contacting the ground, and at the top with hips & knees in full extension
Adaptations / Modifications / Scales
Scale as needed, especially on the push-ups, to avoid hitting muscular failure in this workout in order to stay moving
Sub the run for a 1000 m/800 m (Male/Female) fan bike or 500 m/400 m (Male/Female) row
Consider reducing the overall volume of this workout by reducing the total rounds
