This week I’ve been hiking in Sedona, Arizona, which is one of the most beautiful outdoorsy havens I’ve ever visited, with glorious red rock formations, and some of the most accessible hiking and views yet. I went hiking up the North Wilson trail, which takes about 90 minutes to the summit. At the top, I saw an incredible view of the city, red and glowing in the Arizona sun, and felt invigorated.
I found a large rock and decided to add 100 squat thrusters to my workout. I ended up completing 4 x 25 reps in an interval-style, allowing myself ample time to catch my breath between sets. After I had finished, I still had to descend the mountain, which I found to be much more of a challenge.
Run 15' (suggestion: raise the incline, if using a treadmill)
100 squat thrusters*
Run 15' **]
approximate time = 40-45′
*If at the gym, use two dumbbells. If at home, find a rock, a cinder block, a bag of sand, a small box of books. Hold the weight at shoulder/chest height, squat so that your elbows touch your knees, drive up and press the weight over your head.
**If unable to run, substitute the Stairmaster or spin bike
