Here is this week’s weekly challenge – good luck:
- 1 minute of skipping and during your rest period – Leg Swings – 25 per leg
- 1 minute of skipping and during your rest period – 21 style pushups – 21
- 1 minute of skipping and during your rest period – Atlas Lunge with a 10lb dumbell in each hand – 20 per leg
- Rest for 1 minute
Repeat the sequence above 4 times
The description of the exercises:
Swing your partially bent right leg as high as possible attempting to touch the toe with your opposite hand. As the leg goes back down, let it swing backwards as far as possible to help to stretch your hip flexors as well. Try to keep your torso as tall as possible throught the exercise. Switch legs when complete.
21 style pushups:
Start in a pushup position. Your first 7 pushups start from the fully extended up position to halfway down. The next 7 pushups are from halfway down to fully down. Your last 7 pushups are normal fully extended pushups. Should you be unable to complete the series of 21 in standard form, continue your set on your knees instead of giving up!
Atlas Lunge with a 10lb weight:
Stand tall with your arms extended above your head. Step forward into a lunge with your right leg and simultaneously rotate and reach slightly backward over your right shoulder. (Adjust the weight for your skill level).
