Going out on the town and drinking in excess is a lot like having a cold. Alcohol is a toxin, which your body responds to with an inflammatory response. Just as if you had a cold, you wouldn’t kill yourself at the gym, because you know your body is already in a weakened state. This low-key West Kept Secret post-GNO workout will get you sweating out the toxins from your night before. You will feel as good as new!

Equipment needed: Yoga mat
Warm Up: 1 mile run warm-up (either outdoors or on the treadmill)
Interval: Tabata: 40 seconds of work/20 seconds of rest x 6 static rounds at each station

Movements:

  1. Half burpees
    Start in a plank position on your palms. Bend your knees and jump them forward to meet your palms.
  2. Alternating curtsy lunges
    Start standing with the feet together step your right leg towards the back diagonal and lunge. Alternate from side to side to work the outer glutes.

  3. Plank jacks
    Start in a plank position on your palms. Bend your knees and jump them out wider than the distance of the mat.
  4. Spiderman push-ups
