<article> <section> <p>The following upper-body and core exercises will really work on your glutes, shoulders and much of your upper body.</p> <p>Starting off block 1 with Kneeling Slide. This is a really great push up variation that will really work your glutes and shoulders. You want to make sure you’re squeezing your glutes as you push forward and press through your shoulders by almost pushing the ground away.</p> <p>Moving forward with Explosive Couch Push-Ups. These are basically upright push-ups that use a couch to get a really awesome explosion that will help prepare you for more challenging push-ups. You should feel this a lot in the shoulders and triceps, and the key is to EXPLODE through your arms and with your exhale.</p> <p>Wrapping up block 1 with Kneeling Planks. People tend to get lazy with this exercise but you want to keep your body active by keeping your glutes squeezed to bring that pelvis forward which will challenge your lower body. Focus on tension in your abdominals by thinking about dragging your elbow towards your belly button to make it difficult. The kneeling plank shouldn’t be super easy, you should really feel it challenging your whole body.</p> <p>Don’t get lazy on this second set of kneeling planks in block 2! Squeeze those glutes and keep your abs stable and working to hold this position!</p> <p>Let's keep going with Burpee Walkouts. Sit back through your heels as your hands go to the ground. Use your hands to rock back to your heels. Keep your feet flat. They get your arms and legs doing a lot of work, and they’re also great cardio. When you come down, think about it like you’re bending down to grab something with perfect form, then step each leg back, walk them back up to squatting and stand back up. If you want to ease into squat-thrusts or full burpees, try adding a hop at the end of each walkouts. Really put some power behind your legs as you walk them out and then back in. If you haven’t yet, try jumping your legs back forward or jumping up and you finish.</p> <p>We’re doing some more burpee walkouts in block 3. Try to push yourself to do a few more this block! Put some power behind those legs as you walk them out and bring them back up.</p> <p>Finishing this whole workout with Step Jacks. Keep this whole exercise active by really pushing up your arms and stepping out of your legs. These will get your heart rate up and leave you feeling amazing. If you’re not doing them right it can seem super easy to just step back in forth, but you want to make sure you’re keeping those arms active and really using those glutes to push your legs out. If you’ve been doing step jacks, I want to challenge you to try a few jumping jacks –– remember not to stomp your feet as you come down and take it slowly if you’re having difficulties.</p> <p>You ready? Let's do this!</p> </section> <section> <img style="max-width:100%;" class="img-fluid" src="https://s3.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/wm-wmade-static-media/media/public/Assets/Block_1.png" alt="Round One"> <h3>20 seconds work |10 seconds rest |4 rounds</h3> <div class="row justify-content-center text-center"> <div class="col-12 col-md-4"> <video class="d-block mx-auto" autoplay loop muted> <source src="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/KNEELING-SLIDE.webm" type="video/webm"> <source src="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/KNEELING-SLIDE.mp4" type="video/mp4"> </video> <p>KNEELING SLIDE</p> </div> <div class="col-12 col-md-4"> <video class="d-block mx-auto" autoplay loop muted> <source src="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/EXPLOSIVE-COUCH-PUSHUPS.webm" type="video/webm"> <source src="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/EXPLOSIVE-COUCH-PUSHUPS.mp4" type="video/mp4"> </video> <p>EXPLOSIVE COUCH PUSHUPS</p> </div> <div class="col-12 col-md-4"> <video class="d-block mx-auto" autoplay loop muted> <source src="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/KNEELING-PLANK.webm" type="video/webm"> <source src="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/KNEELING-PLANK.mp4" type="video/mp4"> </video> <p>KNEELING PLANK</p> </div> </div> </section> <section> <img style="max-width:100%;" class="img-fluid" src="https://s3.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/wm-wmade-static-media/media/public/Assets/Block_2.png" alt="Round Two"> <h3>20 seconds work |10 seconds rest |4 rounds</h3> <div class="row justify-content-center text-center"> <div class="col-12 col-md-4"> <video class="d-block mx-auto" autoplay loop muted> <source src="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/KNEELING-PLANK.webm" type="video/webm"> <source src="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/KNEELING-PLANK.mp4" type="video/mp4"> </video> <p>KNEELING PLANK</p> </div> <div class="col-12 col-md-4"> <video class="d-block mx-auto" autoplay loop muted> <source src="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/BURPEE-WALKOUT.webm" type="video/webm"> <source src="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/BURPEE-WALKOUT.mp4" type="video/mp4"> </video> <p>BURPEE WALKOUTS</p> </div> </div> </section> <section> <img style="max-width:100%;" class="img-fluid" src="https://s3.us-east-2.amazonaws.com/wm-wmade-static-media/media/public/Assets/Block_3.png" alt="Round Three"> <h3>20 seconds work |10 seconds rest |4 rounds</h3> <div class="row justify-content-center text-center"> <div class="col-12 col-md-4"> <video class="d-block mx-auto" autoplay loop muted> <source src="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/BURPEE-WALKOUT.webm" type="video/webm"> <source src="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/BURPEE-WALKOUT.mp4" type="video/mp4"> </video> <p>BURPEE WALKOUTS</p> </div> <div class="col-12 col-md-4"> <video class="d-block mx-auto" autoplay loop muted> <source src="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/STEP-JACKS.webm" type="video/webm"> <source src="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/media/public/Assets/media/exercises/beginner/STEP-JACKS.mp4" type="video/mp4"> </video> <p>STEP JACKS</p> </div> </div> </section> </article>
