Before you begin this workout, remember to have plenty of food and water for fuel, as well as performing some type of warmup. This could be dynamic stretching, using a foam roller, easy cardio for a couple of minutes, or a combination of them.
If you're more advanced and don't want to be limited to your bodyweight, you could grab a pair of dumbbells or weight plates to increase resistance.
However, we will warn you, some of our team members did this and trust them when they say: the extra weight accounts for much more intensity than you may think.
Remember, it's a 30-40 minute workout.
So grab a water bottle, maybe a sweat towel, turn on some music, and let's go smash this workout!

After the workout, we'd recommend that you have some sort of snack or meal that's high in protein, that way you maximize the muscular growth you get out of the workout. Maybe have a protein bar, protein powder as part of your favorite shake, or a meal full of protein.
It's also a good idea to do some static stretching, as well as foam rolling and maybe a quick warm down like a walk outside.
It'll ease some of the pain off of your legs, and increase your chances of being able to walk properly the next day.
Thanks for reading! We hope you enjoyed Austin Dunham's workout, and feel that you got a good pump or burn during these uncertain times.
