Olympic Challenge – Hockey

Olympic Challenge – Week 3, Day 3

Olympic Hockey fever is “sky high” right now in North America! The gold medal match between USA and Canada women kicks off Thursday morning and the semi-final match between USA and Canada men is on Friday morning!! I spent 2 years in Western Ontario and it was always crazy when there was any kind of grudge match between the 2 countries. I found an awesome workout on a hockey fitness website at http://hockeyot.com.   You can find a video of the different exercises at this link as well.  Repeat the circuit 4 times and in between do 3 minutes of intense cardio (up and down stairs, suicide drills in the front yard or parking lot, jump roping etc).

Here is the workout:

  • Hip Twisters x 16 reps each side
  • Cotton-Eyed Joe Lateral Shuffle x 16 reps each side
  • One-leg Squat Jump, Right x 12 reps
  • One-leg Squat Jump, Left x 12 reps
  • Push-ups x 16 reps
  • Curtsy Squats, alternating legs in front x 16 reps
  • Russian Jumping Lunges x 8 reps each side
  • Jumping Ohno’s x 8 reps each side
  • Push-ups x 16 reps
  • CARDIO:  3 minutes of intense cardio

-repeat 3 more times

Go USA!!!!
