New Year's Day is a time to do crazy things, and for a fitness-obsessed triathlete, there's nothing like starting things off with a bang by getting in a crazy New Year's workout.
Need some inspiration? Here's 10 crazy workout ideas to help you ring in the New Year with some very sore arms, but a very high sense of accomplishment!
#1: On December 31st: 100 Pushups or 100 Squats per hour from 8am to midnight
#2: Celebrate 01/01/2012 by swimming 1 mile, running 1 mile and biking 20.12 miles.
#3: Do THIS workout before you head out to your New Year's Party (allow 2 hours):
#4: Cycle through each of these 10 minute workouts every hour or every two hours:
#5: At 8am, do 8 burpees, 9am do 9 burpees, at 10am you get the idea and oh yeah, use military timing. What's a burpee?
#6: Do 6 rounds of my "Body Weight Workout For Triathletes":
#7: If #3 wasn't good enough, do THIS workout before you head out to your New Year's Party (allow 2 hours).
#8: Swim 2012 meters as fast as you can. For added difficulty, do it with a bike tube around your ankles.
#9: Take a cold shower on New Year's morning, then do THIS "Metabolic Body Weight Workout"
#10: Do 2012 medicine ball slams by doing about 200 an hour on December 31.
