Today’s Workout

1. Burpee

Stand tall. Inhale and drop to the floor in pushup position, gazing at the floor before you. Complete a pushup, exhaling as you push off the floor. Immediately bring your knees in towards your chest and plant your feet into the floor. Explode up with a jump straight in the air. Once you land, repeat the sequence.

2. Wall Sit

Stand with your back to a sturdy wall. Rest your back onto the wall and inch yourself down until you are in a sitting position. Your knees should be in a 90 degree angle and your thighs parallel to the ground. Rest your hands on top of your head, keep your back straight, and engage your core muscles.

3. Fly with Band

Wrap a band from one palm, behind your back, to the other palm. Stand with feet hip-width apart. Extend hands apart, forming your body into a T-shape. Breathe out as you push your arms together, only bending your arms slightly at the elbows. Pause before your hands touch. Breathe in as you bring your arms back to the T-shape.

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. Kettlebell Row

Stand with feet shoulder-width apart. Place the kettlebell between your feet. Bend your knees and grasp the kettlebell with your right hand. Rest your left hand on your left knee. Keep a straight back, tight core, exhale, and with your elbow close to your body pull the kettlebell so that your elbow just passes your back. Inhale as you return to the starting position. Do a few more with your right before switching to the left hand.

6. 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.

7. Jackknife

Lay on your back, legs extended back and arms extended beyond your head. Inhale as you engage your core and relax your neck muscles. Exhale and lift your legs and arms into the air, bending at the hips. Keep your core engaged and legs and arms as straight as possible. Once your arms and legs are as high as you can go, hold for a moment before inhaling as you slowly let yourself back to flat on the ground. Repeat.
