While today's workout definitely includes some basic push and pull movements, such as push-ups and pull-ups, we're targeting our muscles from new angles. For example, we're taking a wide grip on assisted pull-ups which can engage your lats more. They're harder. Your arms will not be able to assist with the movement as much. Likewise, we're altering the incline of a pushup to engage different parts of your chest and shoulders. We're keeping your muscles engaged and challenged just the way we want! This is a traditional-style workout like most of our workouts have been over the first 6 weeks.

Cardio: 20-30 minutes of intervals (30-second sprints on treadmill: e.g. level/speed 8; alternating with 30 seconds active rest: e.g. level/speed 4)

If you are doing sprints at a different time of day than your workout, remember to warm up a little again with a short jog and some dynamic (leg-specific) stretches before hitting those intense full-body bursts.
