Mandy’s home for her birthday, but rather than candy, baked goods, meat, or any other food, she requested we program this workout in honor of her big day. Ms. Brown came up with this one pretty much entirely on her own, so you can thank her for the butt-hurtin’ you’ll experience in the subsequent days. Happy birthday Mandy!
A couple of keys to completing this workout quickly and effectively: (1) hold onto the plate during the lunges. That is, do not rest it below your knees, and certainly do not drop it aimlessly, allowing it to roll around the floor. (2) Unbroken deadlifts. I think a time closer to 10 minutes is certainly possible on this one. Who’s going to put it up Friday?
