Suffer Club – Workout #26

The Sufferers surprised me this morning. I devised a simple workout, just the exercises you see below, and presented them with the following format options. You can do them like a “ladder” style workout, i.e. do each exercise once, then do each exercise twice, then 3 times, building up to 10, OR you can count it down. Start with 10 reps of each, then 9, etc.

I expected everyone to start with 1 rep each, but no. The bunch of early-rising try-hards started at 10. What they failed to anticipate was that 10 laps of the stairs was a hard way to start the party.

And after 45 minutes of huffing and puffing, nobody had worked their way down past the round of 7, which is, calculated, just about half way.

  • Body Rows
  • Steps Ups (L+R=1) or Box Jumps
  • Triceps Dips
  • Burpees
  • Plank Twists
  • Sit Ups
  • Curtsy Lunges
  • Leg Lifts
  • Push Ups
  • Surrenders
  • Bicycles
  • Stairs

As always, we warm up for 15 minutes to start, a little jog, some mobility and dynamic stretching, and we spend 5 minutes at the end stretching.
