Off-day Conditioning 72120
YES, it is hot out. For all of the exercises/workouts today do as much as you can INDOORS or IN SHADE. Remember to stay HYDRATED and pay attention to how your body is feeling. If you feel faint or dizzy, get into the shade or air conditioning and take a short break. You can still workout and run (etc) in 95+ degree weather, but you need to be SMART about it. If you start to feel overheated, STOP. Take a break, pour some cold water over your head or otherwise wait until your body temperature cools down again. We want to improve our fitness without getting injured or heat exhaustion.

_For this workout, the goal is to try and stay moving while keeping a steady, controlled pace, especially with how hot it is. Think about 70% effort. This is not a “go as fast as you possibly can” workout. If you get really out of breath or feel faint, SLOW DOWN. Take BREAKS if needed.
Pushups: 4 sets
Do four sets of pushups with good form, rest about 60-90s between sets. The goal is to do the same number of push-ups across all four sets. Example: 4 sets of 10, or 4 sets of 5 pushups. Choose a number that challenges you but does not cause you to reach failure on the first two sets.
3 sets, rest 1-2 mins between sets
50 flutter kicks (1, 1)
30 second hollow hold
Stretch for 10-20 minutes
Backpack Ground to Overhead
Lateral Hops over Backpack (or object)
