Week 3: Find a Friend!

This week things get a little tougher as we increase the sets and reps, so go get yourself a friend- find someone who will motivate you so you can push each other! Having the support of someone else as you go through this challenge is huge- a great athlete has a team to rally them.

Exercise should be fun, so go to a park, put on some music and knock out these workouts!  The exercises this week are less complicated so I want the focus to be on SPEED. The last workout of the week will be a partner workout so you will need a friend!
