View Full Version : Quick Workout: 100 X 4

02-14-2005, 01:32 PM
Hey guys, I needed something for the times when for whatever reason I only had time for a real quick workout, so I thought I'd share it for whatever it's worth.

It's called the 100 X 4. Your goal is to reach 100 in each of the following exercises:

-squats (ass to grass) (use a resistance band if possible)
-calf raises (use a resistance band if possible)

Start with pushups until failure, then do 25 QUALITY crunches, then do squats till failure, then do calf raises till failure.

Count each time how many you do, as you ultimately want to do 100 of each. It may take you 2 or three or at very worst 4 circuts to reach 100 in each catagory.

It's quick, it targets most main muscle groups, and you don't need any equipment! Try it and tell me how you like it:thumbsup:

Uh I guess, but just let me clarify that you are just going until failure each time.

So the first time round you might do 35, then the second you might do 20, the third 20, and then to finish it off you do 25.

This way rather than saying "okay I'm going to do 20 pushups", you are pushing your body to go until it fails each time.

except pushup for me was 80, calf raises 150.

that sounds excellent.

for variety, I'd also mix up the squats with lunges.
