9/12/11- Screaming Lungs

As most people know from coming into the gym, I'm a big fan of barefoot running and the benefits of moving away from traditional running shoes.  A great book that explains barefoot running while also telling an unbelievable story is "Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen," by Christopher McDougall.  You can find it in a number of places, including B&N and Amazon and it's a NY Times Bestseller, so check it out.

In terms of barefoot shoes, I highly recommend Vibram FiveFingers because they make many different options for barefoot runners, from the complete minimalist shoe to barefoot hybrids.  There's a picture below displaying their black/camo minimalist shoe.  Here's a link to their website:

As for the workout, here you go:
  1. 1 mile run
  2. Tabata Punches (:20/:10) for 4 minutes
  3. 1 minute sprint
  4. Tabata Squat Jumps (:20/:10) for 4 minutes
  5. 1 minute sprint
  6. Tabata Alternating Lunge Jumps (:20/:10) for 4 minutes
  7. 1 minute sprint
  8. Tabata Jump Rope (:20/:10) for 4 minutes
  9. 1 minute sprint
  10. Tabata Punches (:20/:10) for 4 minutes
  11. 1 mile jog
Good luck with this workout because you should be pretty gassed afterwards.  Check in tomorrow for the WOD!
