Step Up Your Workout Game With These Cool and Unusual Moves
GO GET ‘EM 👊🏽👊🏽👊🏽 Today’s workout 💥💪🏽💥💪🏽💥 1️⃣ DONKEY KICK to MODIFIED SIDE PLANK KICK – The easiest way to describe the donkey kick action 🐴 is to pretend you’re kicking into a handstand from the ground. The leg that kicks up in the air is the SAME LEG that you then cross through under your body, without touching the ground between movements. Aim to kick it out diagonally forward, keeping the leg as straight. The arm that lifts should be straight and vertical. This move requires a lot of focus!!! (5 x 30 sec sets, 20 sec rest between sets). 2️⃣ FAST FEET FAST JABS 👊🏽👊🏽 – start slowly to get the timing right; as your left arm jabs, your right foot will be off the floor and vice versa. Once you’ve got the timing right, speed the movement up until you’re punching as fast as you possibly can. (3 x 30 sec sets, 30 sec between sets. Your arms and shoulders will thank you for this one! 😜) 3️⃣ BIG & SLOW ROPE SLAMS 👻 – Aim for over-the-top-big movements alternating arms, sitting in a quarter/half squat. Keep chest up and back straight (15 sec, straight into… 👇🏽) 4️⃣ SHORT & FAST ROPE SLAMS 👻 – Aim to go as fast as you can, keeping the movement short and sharp (15 sec, straight into… 👇🏽) 5️⃣ DOUBLE ARM ROPE SLAMS 👻 – Big, powerful movements, really slam that rope onto the floor (15 sec, straight into… 👇🏽) 6️⃣ DOUBLE ARM SIDE ROPE WHIPS 👻 – pretend you’re smashing two frying pans together in front of you as HARD as you can 🍳😂 I look awful in this exercise as I was STUFFED haha! (15 sec then TWO MINUTES REST. Ahhhhhhh 😅 REPEAT TWICE 😩Sorry!) 7️⃣ SKIPPING – DOUBLE UNDERS ⚡️⚡️- A good skipping rope is the 🔑 to improving! I use a ‘WOD Whipper’ which is a thin metal cable covered in a thin plastic coating. It hurts like all $&@% when you stuff up which is great motivation to get better! 😂 10 DUs with a single skip between each, then regular slow skipping for 30 sec to recover; 3 x sets) 8️⃣ HIGH KNEE SKIPPING – exactly the same as high knee runs in place only with a rope! Simple! (4 x 30 sec; 30 sec rest between sets) * * ❌That’s it!! ❌ 😄😄😄 Easy peasy. Now GO GET ‘EM!! 🎶🎶: @officialgiggs – 501 (Hollow and Heston) [feat. CASisDEAD]
