The Monday Workout
There is no better to start the week than with The Monday Workout. Designed to put a spring in your step and step up your routine it will most definitely leave you feeling energized and ready to face the week ahead. The burpee in between exercises is penance for not working out on the weekend, but if you did, then it's your reward!   

Instructions: Repeat each move 10 times with a burpee in between until the set is done, rest up to 2 minutes and repeat the whole set again, 3 times in total.

What it works: Calves, glutes, obliques, side hip flexors, cardiovascular system, aerobic performance (VO2 Max). 

Make it better:  Do the burpee in between exercises as fast as you can without breaking form. 

Make it harder: Take one minute's rest between sets. It's only Monday. The week is still ahead of you. 

Perfect for: Monday starters and those who want to start the week with a zap.

So my department had a golf outing.  It was an IT golf outing, hence the course.

As I always say when asked to go golfing:  "Is there a windmill or mechanical alligator on the course?"

Jump Rope Workout
Few cardiovascular exercises deliver quite the same benefits as skipping rope. Here is a hand-eye coordination exercise that has more hand-mind components to it than almost any other exercise you may want to do.   

Instructions: Repeat each move with no rest in between until the set is done, rest up to 2 minutes and repeat the whole set again 3, 4 or 5 times depending on your fitness level.

What it works: Calves, quads, glutes, lower back, hamstrings, deltoids, biceps, triceps, lower abs, cardiovascular system. 

Make it better:  Reduce rest times between sets and really make this the cardio exercise it is designed to be. 

Make it harder: Go faster. Then, go faster. As fast as you can without getting your skip rope tangled up. 

Body types this can work for: Gravity is not a great friend to any of us. The more weight we carry the harder this becomes but that should be no excuse not to go for it. 

Perfect for: Anyone looking for a way to add spring to their step and speed to their movements. This is also great as a cardio routine on days when the weather is too bad to go run outside.
