“Hey! What’s going on? It’s Ian Hart here at EarthFIT and here’s Holiday Workout #2. Again it’s 4 exercises. Each exercise should take about 45 seconds to a minute. So it’s a total of 16 to 20 minutes and it’s going to be 4 exercises that you do without weight, but I’m going to show you with weight.
The first one is going to be forward and backwards lunge so it’s going to incorporate legs and also stability; you’re going to have to balance. So I have one weight here, stepping forward and then backwards, and repeat. For a beginner, you can do stopping here (at start) and then back. So you are going to do 20 on each side going back and forth, switch sides and repeat. So back and forth… make sure you are pushing through the front heel when you go back and then go down bring the knee about an inch above the ground. That’s the first exercise.
The next one is going to be a Push up with a spin. You’re going to get into a push up position, push up and then spin around, and then back the other way. Push up – spin. So it’s coordination. Go slow and controlled if you need to. So you can go slow, once you are get it down you can go faster. And if you really feel frisky, you can do a full spin and then push up.
All right. The third exercise is going to be a Spin Jump. This is a little bit complicated and more advanced, so I am going to show another one that you can do if you can’t do this. Starting sideways get down into squat, then you are going to turn and jump. So that is the simple one. You can do more advanced: turn, jump, touch the ground, turn, jump, touch the ground. For those who can’t do that (the jumping with a spin), you are just going to do a lateral lunge. So you are doing 20 of this on each side; 20 of the jumps total.
And then the last one are going to be one of my favorite exercises that incorporate the full body is the Bear Crawl. Bear crawl is on all fours, getting low to the ground and crawling. You can use your speed, you can do it down a hallway, you can do it outside – you can do this whole work outside. You’re going to do the bear crawl for 30 seconds.
So again let’s recap. We have:
– Forward-backwards lunges (20 reps on each side)
– Spinning push ups (15 to 20 reps)
– The Jump squats with a spin (20 reps), and
– The bear crawl for (30 seconds)
So there you go Holiday Workout #2, make sure you do this and take action right now. Don’t watch it and say you are going to do it later, cause the day will get started and you missed out. So go ahead and start that, it takes about 16 to 20 minutes and enjoy the Holidays.”
