Adidas does it big. Pure Boost X was launched earlier this year and I was lucky to participate in the shoe’s epic three day launch in Santa Monica, CA. Recently, Adidas Running continued the Pure Boost party but this time in Montauk, NY. For those who are unfamiliar, Montauk was once a quiet fishing town past the Hamptons on Long Island, and is now THE summer getaway place to both escape and be seen. The event started with a bang as we boarded three helicopters from NYC to MTK. One hour later we were at Gurney’s Resort. We went through hair and makeup glam, picked out our outfits for the weekend, and got the new Pure Boost X. The two days centered around what adidas Women always stresses- being strong in every sense of the word. We trained- ran in the rain, took a Barre 3 class, examined our gaits and took SUP paddle board yoga. We also spoke with 3 time Olympian Jennifer Rhines and Barre 3 founder Sadie Lincoln on building our own empires, finding balance and doing it all with positive energy. The video and photo library below represent it well. Thank you adidas Running for another epic event.
It’s always better together. I recently teamed up with my girl Michelle Carigma of Modern Fit (@_modernfit) to create a self sufficient workout date. Assign your partner a number, complete these three exercises, then switch! Grab some water then do it all again.
Partner 1(Michelle) – Forearm Plank. Engage your core and glutes. Use your lats to press your forearms into the ground and chest away from the ground.
Partner 2(Meagan) – 20 Tuck Jumps over Parter 1. Get your knees up and count the 20 jumps aloud.
Added difficulty: Partner 1- Lift one leg and hold. Switch lifted legs halfway through Partner 2’s set (jump 10).
Partner 2 – Wall Sit. Sit against a wall with your feet shoulder width apart. Have your partner check that your bum is even with your knees to make a perfect 90 degree angle. Roll your shoulders back, engage your lower abs and hold the position as long as it takes for Partner 1 to complete their set below.
Partner 1 – 30 Tricep Dips. Bend your arms to 90 degrees while holding your partner’s knees. If this feels awkward, have Partner 2 widen their stance. Without letting your elbows splay outwards, push up until your arms are nearly straight. Repeat 30 times.
Added Difficulty: Partner 2- Do 15 dips with right leg lifted parallel to the ground then switch legs for the remainder of the set.
Partner 1- 25 Sit Ups. Two feet on the ground. Arms crossed or behind your head.
Partner 2- Mountain Climbers. Start in plank position while holding Partner 1’s feet. Draw one knee towards your nose, switch. Repeat as fast as you can for as long as it takes Partner 1 to completes their sit-up set.
Added Difficulty: Partner 1- Touch opposite elbow to knee while sitting up. Partner 2- Cross your knees to opposite shoulders.
