Warm Up: Bicycle
15 minutes on a recumbent stationary bicycle; 10 cycles of 30 seconds high resistance 60 seconds low resistance. Set an rpm goal that is difficult to maintain.

Comprehensive light stretching, then focus on deep hip external rotators, glutes and IT band (tensor fasciae femoris) with butterfly stretches, feet farther in front butterfly stretches, lying glute stretches, lying piriformis stretches, and lying hip stretches.

Resistance: 50/100 for time!!!
This is the last time you’ll see a benchmark-style workout this 8 week period.  Good luck!

You can break it up however you like: 10 and 5 of each 10 times, all of 1 exercise then break up the rest, whatever.  Just get it all done.  This is for time, so the 3 breath rule applies here, too.  If you need a rest, take 3 breaths then get moving again.  As many breaks as you need, but never more than 3 breaths.  Keep track of your time and what you have to modify to be successful.

50 pull-ups (assisted on a machine, jumping, or with a bungee if necessary)
50 push-ups
100 squats

Run 2 miles (treadmill, elliptical, track, or hit the streets)

Cool Down:
Walk half of a mile.

Stretch: Shoulders, Chest, Back

Give me some ideas for what you would like to accomplish over the next eight weeks so I can design the program accordingly.  Let me know how it's going!  Tweet about it @geoffcraft #FitnessIsLove and/or #JAFFEBBEWP.  Eat well, drink lots of water, and have fun!  Love you!

Get fit.
