Red Wings Memorial Workout

Red Wings Memorial Workout


    Hey there sports fans! Welcome to another post on what is in my extremely biased opinion the best sporting blog on the internet. I am going to talk to you guys today about personal workouts, and a great one I found. Thanks to Houston Texans star Defensive end I found this great workout you can do at home, with minimal equipment. And if you don’t have the equipment, there are lots of other exercises to substitute instead. This was posted as a Red Wings Memorial Workout to JJ’s facebook and twitter page a couple years ago, back in 2014. This workout was in honor of the member of Operation Red Wing that took place on June 27th of 2005 with US troops engaging Taliban forces in Afghanistan. This workout was posted in memoriam of the men and women who were killed that day. This workout is 6 exercises in total, with 28 reps of each exercise and 5 sets total.

  1. Pushups- Chest touching the ground to full arm extension. For added challenge, have you hands lower than your feet to and keep your back straight to form a downwards ramp.

  2. Sit ups, anchored- This helps to have a workout partner, but if not then try to either get your feet under a door or under a mat with a weight on it.

  3. Ball Slams- Take the heaviest medicine ball you have, and while holding it with two hands bring it above your head then slam it into the ground as hard as you can. If you don’t have a medicine ball, you can substitute this with bouncing a basketball as high as possible on a wall with you finger tips, while on the toes of one leg.

  4. Lunges with a weight plate above your head- Preferably outdoors, get a medium weighted weight plate and hold it above your head. Rotate your torso inwards with every step. 28 lunges with each leg.

  5. Deadlifts- Back straight, legs shoulder width apart.

  6. Two Handed Kettlebell Swings


    And that's it! Keep at this workout and you should see some results very quick!
