What does a session at Ed’s Gym look like?


Some of you have asked “What does a session at Ed’s Gym look like?” So today, I’m sharing my workout schedule for this week.

Each workout begins with a warm-up period that looks something like this.

50 Criss-Cross Jumping Jacks
Band Pull Aparts 25/25
Hip-Opener 30/30 seconds
Hindu Push-Ups X8
Shoulder Slides Against Wall X12
Fire Hydrants 10/10 each leg
Hip Thrusts w/ Reach 8/8
Ankle Mobility (Knee to Wall) 15/15
Knee Pull Ups To Chest 10/10
High Kicks 10/10

After the warm up, we move into the workout for the day. Here are some examples of what we’ve been doing this week. The difficulty of each exercise is crafted to the individual’s ability.

I’m normally at the gym on Fridays too, but not this week. I’m headed to Moab.

These are pretty typical workouts, but Ed varies things up week-to-week, finding muscles I didn’t know I had and keeping things fun – did I just say fun. Hope he isn’t reading this.
