PS – Once you rock out this Championship circuit, remember this –

“Champions aren’t made in the gym.

Champions are made from something they have deep inside them:

A desire.          A dream.         A vision.”

                                                                                    -Muhammed Ali, Boxer

PPS – A Champion executes perfect form – here’s how:

Squat Jumps

  • Begin in an athletic stance. Press hips back and sit into a squat with weight evenly distributed between balls and heels of feet. Keep chest lifted and core tight.
  • Drive up through standing into a vertical jump. Land softly lowering right back into the squat.
  • Repeat for the designated time.

Pike Pull Through

  • Begin seated on the floor with hands set outside of hips, fingers pointing forward. Place heels on the floor with knees slightly bent.
  • Lift into a Reverse Table or Bridge by driving through feet and hands to raise hips off floor.
  • Swing hips down and back pulling through arms into a Pike – engage quads to help. Draw belly up and in for lift, and strengthen arms.
  • Repeat for designated time without touching hips to floor.


  • Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart.
Drop down onto your hands and feet, then thrust your feet back so you are in a push- up position.
  • Perform a Pushup.
  • Thrust your feet back in toward chest and vertically jump up.

Lateral Squats

  • Begin in a very wide stance with toes pointing forward and weight anchored in heels.
  • Keeping the right leg straight, push your body toward the left leg and drop into a squat. Drive back up to standing by pressing through heel and engaging hamstring and glutes.
  • Alternate squatting laterally from side to side. Keep the straight leg engaged to help with form and depth.
