Warm up:

20 inchworms (make sure you get that hammy stretch)


2 x per min for 20 minutes perform a 10 m sprint.  

You are to accelerate to top speed, then come to a complete stop WITHIN 10 meters each time.  
Post sprints completed to comments.


This workout is cool.  By accelerating to top speed within a short distance, you tax and shape mainly the posterior portion of your lower body.  Then, by hitting the brakes and decelerating to a stop in the same short distance, you tax and shape the other side (anterior).  This lends to perfect balance in your lower body. 

Most people make the mistake of thinking that a sprint workout is all about using the lower body and lungs.  It is not.  Sprinting taxes the entire body, ESPECIALLY the core. It is one of the reasons sprinters look like this.  Give it your all today to get the most benefit.


This is workout #1 of HELLth week.  This week (like other HELLth weeks before) is uber ROUGH.  The challenge this week is to complete every workout.  ALL SIX.  Those who do will raise their health and fitness to a new level.  Those who finish all of these workouts will have accomplished something special.  If you can get through HELLth week, you can get through a week of just about ANYTHING. Please be careful, but give this week your heart.  

One of the things we have learned down here at GPP is that you are WAY more capable than you give yourself credit for. What you are able to endure REALLY will astound you. After this week, you will know this.  After this week, THERE IS NO GOING BACK.  You can never again say, "that is too hard for me."  You will break through barriers this week, if you'll let yourself.  

Take this week to do that which has held you back in the past.  Workout harder than you thought you could (be careful, but do it).  Clean up your eating.  Sleep more.  Drink more water.  Take your vitamins.  Get on track.  Let this week give you the momentum you need to NEVER worry about your health or appearance again.  

Pumped to storm this with you!  Good luck!


Tara celebrating 3 years with GPP!  Many of you ladies have wondered what years of lifting "all that heavy weight" will look like on.  Well ...
