-25 Hip Bridges- Lying down, knees bent, feet flat on the ground, squeeze your glutes, then thrust your hips into the air. This is a dynamic stretch for your hips and a very good way to warm up the spine.
-20 Bodyweight Squats- Keep your arms out in front of you as you go down in the squat, while keeping your chest tall. Stay heavy on your heels, then as your come back up, squeeze your glutes putting your hips into extension and squeeze your shoulder blades together like a high row (bringing your elbows back)
-15 Jumping Jacks-
REPEAT FOR 3 ROUNDS
Complete as many rounds as you can in 20 min.
-10 Burpees- At the bottom of the burpee, pushup is optional. Make sure you keep your head in line with your spine. In other words, don’t let your head drop down.
-30 Jumping Lunges- (15 each side) **Make sure your knee does not go over the mid part of your foot. The lower you go into the lunge, the harder it is. The back knee should never hit the ground. KEEP YOUR CHEST TALL TO KEEP SPINAL ALIGNMENT.
-10 Snap Jumps- Start in plank position with arms straight. Jump both of your knees toward your chest and then jump with your legs back out into a standard plank position. Maintain a flat back throughout this exercise. This equals 1 rep.
-15 Decline Pushups- (Put your toes on something elevated) The closer you keep your hands to your body, the harder the pushup.
-15 Sumo Squats- Feet/toes pointed in a 10 and 2 o’clock position. You can hold onto a weight close to your chest if you wish, but as you drop your hips/butt down and back, keep your chest tall, heavy on your heels, shoulders down and back, making sure your knees don’t go over your toes.
For additional suckage - wear weighted vest or body armor.
