I swear I am going to get back on my blogging game soon! I have been so amazingly busy with a full schedule of personal training clients that I haven’t had much time to dedicate to my blog. Hopefully, I can change that soon!
Today I want to share a workout that will get your blood pumping, your quads screaming, and your glutes perky. It’s simple and can be scaled to every fitness level. If your a beginner do each exercise for 20 seconds. If you are advanced or you’re looking to be challenged go for 60 seconds! Here it is!
Plank Jacks: Begin in a plank. Shoulders directly over wrists with a flat and even back. Begin with your feet together, then jump your feet hip distance apart. Jump feet back together. Repeat for the duration.
Air Squats: Stand with feet hip distance apart. Bend knees to a 90 degree angle and allow hips to move backward like you are about to sit in a chair. Squeeze your glutes as you return back to a standing position.
Reverse Lunges: Stand with feet together. Step your right foot behind you and bend your right knee. Allow your knee to hover 2 inches above the ground. Extend your knee and return foot back to standing position. Repeat on the other side. Repeat for duration.
Towel or Glider Knee Tucks: Begin in a plank with a small towel under your toes (or glider). At the same time, pull both of your knees in toward your chest. Then return your feet simultaneously to the starting position.
Push-ups: Begin in a plank. band your elbows and lower your self about 4 inches away from the floor. Use your knees if you need to! Press yourself back up to a high plank. Repeat for the duration.
Squat Jumps: Jump squat is done the same as a regular air squat, but once you lower to the bottom position your jump up off the floor as high as you can!
Jump Lunges: Jump lunges are done the same as reverse lunges, only you after plant your foot behind you, you squeeze your inner thighs together and jump your back foot forward and your front foot backward!
Atomic glider (or towel) Pushups: Begin in a plank with a towel (or gliders) under your toes. Complete a pushup then complete a knee tuck! Repeat!
I hope you enjoy the workout of the day!
