I gave my body a few days of rest so today I have a new workout to ease myself back into training.
The exercises are unconventional but that’s what makes it different and fun.
It will definitely challenge every muscle in your body and works many aspects of fitness training; power, balance, strength, cardio, and core stabilization.
Have fun with it and push yourself as hard as you can as the workout is only 10 minutes long.
It goes by fast so make the most of it.
Beginner variations and explanations on how to do each exercise is included towards the end of the video.
Give it a try and leave me a comment. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
Workout details are below:
Keep track of your time on a clock, Gymboss Interval Timer or stop watch if you have one.
Perform the following 4 exercises one after the other until 10 minutes have passed.
Perform 10 repetitions for each exercise before moving on to the next one. Doing all four exercises counts as 1 set (round).
Record the number of sets or rounds that you complete in 10 minutes.
If you have the time or energy to do more, then go for it.
Beginners can choose to perform 5 repetitions instead of 10, if 10 repetitions are too challenging.
Listen to your body and adjust the intensity as needed.
Here are the exercises:
1. Side Plank Leg Lift (Left Leg) x 10 reps:
The side plank targets all of the muscles of the core and works the supporting shoulder as well.
This exercise requires alot of control and balance so you’re working many stabilizer muscles throughout the body to stay in position. The side leg lift targets the outter thigh and bum muscles.
2. Side Plank Leg Lift (Right Leg) x 10 reps:
Same as above.
3. 1/2 Burpee Side Jumps x 10 reps:
This exercise targets many muscles; core, shoulders, legs, and stabilizer muscles of the upper back. It also activates the cardiovascular system making it a great overall exercise that works your full body.
Every time you bring your feet back into your chest, it is counted as 1 repetition.
4. Reverse Hip Roll to Tuck Jump x 10 reps:
This is another exercise that targets many muscle groups mainly in the lower body and core. The jumps build power and strength in the lower body and it also activates the cardiovascular system.
All 4 exercises count as 1 round (set). Keep repeating for 10 minutes and record your score.
