Tabata: Wednesday workout Matt Bostick

Workout Wednesday is back to get you moving

Who said just because you’re not going to school you don’t need a backpack?

Certainly not Duff Elementary physical education teacher Matt Bostick, who is putting the backpack to work in Episode 5 of Workout Wednesday.

Whether you’re stuffing your backpack with books or beans, Bostick has you covered with his Backpack Complex routine. The backpack stays with you for the entire workout as you attempt everything from deadlifts to broad jumps. And remember that you don’t have to put too much in your backpack to get a good workout in.
