Hey again! Since I didn’t want to bog you down with a super long post this morning, I decided to move Move It Monday to this afternoon instead. I hope you don’t mind. Although, I don’t think you will since I have a fun one planned for you today.
In keeping with the “wild” theme of this morning’s post, I have a little animal themed workout for you today! For Tuesday Trainer awhile ago, Lindsay did an animal themed workout and I loved it. After spending the weekend at the zoo, I kept going back to the animal theme myself and this is what I came up with: a full body workout flowing through 2 groups of exercises. Each group includes a move for the lower body, the upper body, and two more full body core centered exercises. It’s a good one!
For this workout, you will go through the 2 groups of exercises separately. You will perform 60 seconds of each exercise before moving immediately to the next exercise in the group. After completing 60 seconds of each exercise for that particular group, rest for 60 seconds before repeating for 3-4 total rounds. After finishing 3-4 total rounds of the first group, do the same layout and repeat for the second group.
To adapt things, complete only 30-40 seconds of each exercise and only do 2 round of each or do the groups on different days as separate workouts. Take rest breaks more frequently during the workout.
Note: For moves like bird dog, scorpion, and dead bug – alternate sides during the 60 seconds. For the donkey kick, perform reps for one leg for 30 seconds and then switch (or do 60 seconds per leg).
And to help with any exercises you’re unsure of, I have some links for you below!
- Frog Jumps
- Bird Dog
- Scorpion (make it easier by doing it with the ball against a wall and/or not fully extending the leg)
- Donkey Kicks
- Bear Crawl
- Crab Walk
- Dead Bug
Now, go get wild!!!
