All you need for this workout is a weighted ball, such as a slam ball, medicine ball, or Xerball, and some space (or treadmill) to run.

If you’re unfamiliar with a Curtsy Squat, here is a great video tutorial. You can either perform 1o reps on the right side and then 10 on the left or 20 alternating reps per round. It’s totally up to you!

Slam Ball + Running Workout

For the Push-Ups, you have the option of doing them with your hands or feet on the ball or without. Feel free to modify as needed. Same goes for the Sit-Ups. For a challenge, use your weighted ball.

Arugula Salad with Peaches, Sorghum, Almonds and Lemon-Honey Vinaigrette

This arugula and peach salad is like summer sunshine on a plate! Sweet, juicy peaches are the star of the show. Nutty tasting and fiber-rich whole-grain sorghum, nutrient-packed peppery arugula, and healthy fats from the flavorful Marcona almonds, plus a light drizzle of Lemon-Honey Vinaigrette, round out the cast of simple ingredients in this light, yet satisfying, seasonal salad.

If you’ve cooked the whole-grain sorghum ahead of time, this dish can be assembled in under 10 minutes, which means less time in the kitchen and more time relaxing on the beach — or wherever you like to chill in the summer. The recipe serves one, so treat yourself to a light and healthy summer lunch, or double, triple or quadruple the recipe and invite your best buds over to join you.

Arugula Salad with Peaches, Sorghum, Almonds and Lemon-Honey Vinaigrette
Serves 1


Lemon-Honey Vinaigrette:
3 tablespoons neutral-tasting vegetable oil (e.g., high-oleic safflower oil)
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (about 1/2 lemon)
2 teaspoons honey
Salt and pepper to taste

2 cups baby arugula
1/2 cup warm cooked whole-grain sorghum*
1 peach, sliced into wedges
1/4 cup salted/seasoned Marcona almonds*
2 tablespoons Lemon-Honey Vinaigrette


Make the vinaigrette: Combine the oil, lemon juice and honey in a small jar, and shake well to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste, and set aside until ready to prepare the salad.

To make the salad, place 2 cups of arugula on a salad plate and top with the cooked sorghum. Top with peach slices and sprinkle with Marcona almonds. Drizzle 2 tablespoons Lemon-Honey Vinaigrette on top, or to taste.

*Note: The sorghum can be cooked a day or more ahead of time and lightly warmed in the microwave before you prepare the salad. If you can’t find whole-grain sorghum, feel free to use cooked quinoa or your favorite cooked whole grain.
