Because I'm Terrible at Scrapbooks

Work it Out Wednesday: Football Inspired Workout #1


Remember that whole fall Brittny thing I mentioned the other day?

How things are so different around our house in the fall because of football season?

Yeah, so it’s really true.

I tend to ease into this role in August, knowing my alter ego will soon arrive, so as not to be totally shocked when I start actually craving and getting excited for all things football related.

And today’s Work it Out Wednesday?

Is all about football.

Something about being at the OU games before they start gets me pumped.

There’s still an aura. A swagger.

And I love it.

One of my favorite parts of the pre-game is watching the warm-ups.

And no, it’s not because I’m some sick cougar watching college boys bend over.


Get your heads out of the gutters, girls!

It’s actually because I love watching their exercises and stretches. I love how they dance about and get themselves revved up for the game.

It always gives me inspiration for my own workouts!

If you’ve ever watched football boys warm-up, they do a lot of similar moves you may see in the gym, in an Insanity video, or even at a boot camp in some cases.

I’ve decided to devote this month’s Work it Out Wednesday to all things football related.

I will be sharing football inspired workouts you can do at home, outside, or in the gym.

This week is all about shuffles.

Have you ever done a shuffle?

And um, I’m not talking about a dance. smile

I’m talking all out, no kidding shuffles.

Like these-

They can be tough.

Especially when incorporated into a workout!

Shuffles target your quads and glutes and when done quickly can really get your heart going.

Grab a dumbbell, get in your back yard, garage, hallway, somewhere where you have a little space to move side to side, move quickly through this workout and and

10 Shuffles w/ weight
20 Stance jacks/ w weight
10 Shuffles w/ weight
20 Squat shoulder press
10 Shuffles w/ weight
20 Pushups
10 Shuffle w/weighted shoulder presses (done simultaneously)
20 Jumping jacks

Repeat 5 times.

I don’t know about you, but I’m pumped for football, and when I do this week workout, I’ll be thinking about my Sooners!
