Get Toned With This Lucky Shamrock Workout

“This Patty’s day, we should’t forget our reason or our rhyme

Let history tell all how Patrick saved Ireland that time

They say he drove the snakes away with one single run

With one long trek, with no hard breath, and smiled when he was done

His heart was stout, cause he worked out, right here at Anytime!”

St. Patrick’s Day is here, and I don’t know about you, but I’m looking forward to some beer and celebration. But if we’re going to celebrate, we’ll have to earn it first!

In honor of the Shamrock (which has THREE leaves, not four), we’ll be doing a workout with three rounds and three exercises per round. Get ready to sweat, because this workout will get you as healthy as cabbage and hard as potatoes!

This will be a total body workout, hitting all areas of your muscle. Focus on well-paced repetitions and good form. This workout is not a race, we are not timing ourselves to see how fast we do it, so just work nice and steady to get the job done. Also, for these rounds, there aren’t any appointed rest times. Just listen to your body and take a breather if necessary.
