OK! By now you should be doing week 10 exercise. I hope you are getting fitter and having FUN!
For the next 10 weeks you are going to put it all together to get ready for the competition in June. Remember this is your own challenge so work hard and have fun with it.
Rest 30 seconds in between exercises. Repeat up to 4 times with a 2 minute break.
Push-up to side plank (with modifications or additions). Perform a push-up on your toes or knees, then shift into side plank of the left, hold for 5-10 seconds, return to push-up position, repeat on the right. Go back and forth until you have completed 10-20 push-ups.
Lunge to one-leg balance (add resistance or overhead press to progress). Perform a front lunge, with or without weights. As you return to standing position, push off with leg that is out and stop when you are straight up in a standing position. Hold this balancing pose for 5 seconds before putting your leg down and lunging on the other leg. Repeat 20 times.
Exercise 3Squat hops Start by driving your hips backward like you are going to sit in a chair. Go as low as you feel comfortable going, or until your thighs are parallel to the floor. From here, stand up fast with a little hop at the top. Your feet should just barely leave the ground. Perform these as fast as you can, do as many as you can for one minute.
