Welcome to an exciting edition of workout Wednesday! Each week I share a new running or strength training for runners workout, but his week I am sharing a unique workout idea and am giving away these fun fitness dice that I found at the store Five Below.
These are 12-sided foam dice with bodyweight exercises on each side. Set the timer for 20 minutes and start rolling. See how many exercises you can get in during that timeframe while maintaining proper form.
I am a big believer in workout programming, structure and progression, but there is nothing wrong with having a little fun with fitness once in awhile. While I wouldn't usually assign exercises at random, it's a fun way to shake things up. Exercise doesn't have to be boring.
If you don't have these dice at home you can enter to win one or create a workout use my dice chart below with regular dice.
Not everyone has these special fitness dice or access to buy them, so I transferred the exercises to the below chart so you can play with regular dice.
Always progress or regress the exercises as necessary for your fitness level. For example, if jump squats or jump lunges are too advanced (or hard on your joints), then replace with regular squats and lunges. If 15 burpees are too many (that's a lot of burpees!) then do 10 or 5 instead. Exercise is not all-or-nothing. Do what you can. Always adjust to your own fitness level. It's not a good idea to blindly follow workouts on the internet (or on fitness dice). Know your limits. Push yourself but use common sense. Deal? Deal.
