PPS – Make sure your form is perfect so you can be successful:

Walking Lunges

  • Being standing in an athletic stance*.
  • Step one leg forward and drop back knee toward floor.
  • Keep weight shifted onto front leg, specifically driving up through the heel and glutes of that front leg as you push forward and up to standing. Switch legs, lunging foward.
  • Alternate legs lunging and Repeat for the designated time.

Cross Body Mountain Climber

  • Begin in High Plank with hands set under shoulders and torso in a straight line. Engage quads and core to stay buoyant
  • Lengthen chest forward and hold as you drive a knee up toward opposite elbow. Contract core stronger then return leg to plank.
  • Alternate legs moving slow and controlled.
  • Repeat for the designated time.

Total Body Extension

  • Start in an athletic stance*.
  • Dip down quickly into a quarter squat and swing your arms behind you by your sides.
  • Explode up and extend your body onto your toes, raising your arms overhead.
  • Control the descent back and in one movement return to the dip before exploding back up again.
This is a non-impact replacement for jumping.

Pushup to Side Plank

  • Begin in a pushup position with hands set just wider than shoulders, chest drawing forward with abs and quads engaged and lifted.
  • Perform a pushup then rotate heels to the right and lift the left arm skyward coming into a side plank. Control your body as you return to the pushup position.
  • Repeat the pushup then rotate into side plank on the opposite side.

Hamstring Curls on ball

  • Begin lying on the floor with heels on top of ball, feet flexed and legs straight. Place hands on floor for balance
  • Lift hips off floor and engage core.
  • Using hamstrings, bend knees to draw ball in toward hips then press legs straight without hips dipping or dropping.
  • Repeat for the designated time.
