Alright, today is the first day of getting back into shape! I should start
off with one of my goals of these workouts. These first three to four weeks will be focused on general fitness. It is important to get your body to a basic level of fitness before you go crazy with workouts. After I get done with the general fitness phase these workouts will start to become a little more specific. The specific workouts will get me ready to compete in several sprint races this winter at several indoor track and field meets. So, if you are following along with this workout beyond the gen. fitness stage you will see a lot of the workouts emphasizing speed, agility, and strength.
Now, todays workout will be a fast pace circuit. The goal for this circuit will be to take very little rest between activities to help keep your heart pumping at a high rate.
The warm up phase should get you to have a good sweat and loosen up your body to prepare you for the workout you will be doing. So, work on the muscles you will be using during the day. Static stretching will not be done until you are done with the workout. All the excercises listed below are dynamic stretches.
