Today’s Workout

1. Bear Crawl

Get down on all fours, with your hips slightly up in the air. Gaze ahead and move on your hands and feet forward. Mark out where you’d like to travel to. Once you’re there, reverse your direction, moving backwards on your hands and feet. Repeat.

2. Jump Squat

With feet hip-width apart, inhale, bend your knees as you extend your hips backwards, as if into a sitting position. Bring your hands together in front of your chest as you do so. Load your weight into your heels and balls of the feet. Exhale, launch yourself straight up, and extend your arms down and out as you air. Land with knees slightly bent. Repeat.

3. Pushup with Band

Wrap a band from one palm, behind your back, and to the other palm. Place hands apart on the floor, shoulder-width or wider. Keep your body flat and lengthened with feet together. Gaze softly at the floor before you. Breathe in as you let your chest fall just before the floor, without touching the floor. Breathe out and push yourself back up to the beginning position. Keep a controlled rhythm, remember to breathe, and keep your body as flat as possible.

4. Bear Crawl

Get down on all fours, with your hips slightly up in the air. Gaze ahead and move on your hands and feet forward. Mark out where you’d like to travel to. Once you’re there, reverse your direction, moving backwards on your hands and feet. Repeat.

5. Chin Up

Grasp pull up bar, hands shoulder-width apart, with your palms facing towards you. Breathe out as you pull yourself up, stopping as your nose reaches just above the bar. Hold in this position for a moment. Breathe out as you let your body drop back down. Engage your core throughout the exercise to prevent swinging.

6. Kettlebell Swing

Stand tall, feet hip-width apart, and grasp your kettlebell with both hands. Keep arms long and relaxed. Gaze forward. Shift your bodyweight into your heels, push your hips back, and bend your knees as you let the ‘bell swing between your legs. Keep your back straight with a tight core. Continue to gaze forward as you exhale, drive from your hips, core, and legs to swing the kettlebell up to shoulder level. You will now be in a standing position again. Inhale and allow the kettlebell to fall between your legs again, with your hips back, knees bent and core remaining tight. Repeat.

7. Ab Roll Out

Kneel down on the floor with an ab roller device in both hands. Place the roller’s wheels on the floor before you. Exhale as you push the wheel forward, keeping your back straight and head in a neutral position, tightly engaging your core the whole time. When you reach the furthest you can go, inhale as you roll back to the starting position. Your back is always straight and your core is always tight. Repeat.
