Need a bodyweight workout that will work your entire body and get your heart rate up? Mix strength training and plyometrics and do this Coming Down the Ladder Bodyweight Workout.
I am currently staring at the background of my computer right now with butterflies in my tummy. In t-4 weeks mark and I will be in the wonderful land of SCANDINAVIA! The first part of the trip will be spent with our dear friend Lars who was an exchange student at our high school. We both got to know him really well because Mark played soccer with him and I hung out with Mark :P Lars lives in downtown Bergen so thats where we will be the first 2 days of our trip followed by 6 days in and around Geiranger where Lars grew up. Our main goal for Norway? Spend as much time outside hiking, exploring, kayaking as possible. Just google Geiranger, Norway and you’ll know what I mean.
Following Norway, we’re heading to Copenhagen for 4 days and then a stopover in Iceland for 3 days. Copenhagen will be more of a city adventure and Iceland will be back outdoors. Since we basically have a personal tour guide in Norway, we’re having to do much more research in Copenhagen and Iceland…this is where you come in! We’d love recommendations for either of those places. Where to stay, eat, and do would be great! I’ve found that the best kind of travel is by word of mouth. We’re open to anything and would love to hear about your experience!
You guys can thank Miss Nourish Move Love for this BA of a workout. I’ve got a few ladder-style workouts on FFF (check them out here and here) and this one will not disappoint! I love the mixture of strength and plyo. It’s the only way to go, if you ask me! I made sure to keep this workout bodyweight only so that you can take it on the road. If you are a BEAST and looking for more of a challenge…add in some weights.
Oh! And it’s going to be a perfect workout to take with me to Scandinavia. I told myself that I would try workout 8 out of the 16 days..even if it’s just a 20 minute AMRAP or 30 minute circuit.
