18 Minute Bodyweight
Routine At Home
Do 5 rounds of:
1. Walking lunge with switch - 2 lengths, 6-8 steps per length (count only the steps not the switch)
2. Bear crawl to jump squat - you aim to hit 10 jump squats. That will make 10 bear crawls, forward and backward of 5-6 steps per length with 1 jumping squat at the end.
3. Crab toe taps - 20 total repetitions. Rest between rounds: 90 seconds
Why to Consider Trying This Bodyweight Routine?
Let me cover each one of these bodyweight exercises separately so you get the main idea of this bodyweight routine.
1. The walking lunge with a switch - did you ever tried the walking lunges? We both know that it can hurts. A lot. Well, to make this movement even more "fun", the switch that you need to perform on every second step will spice things up even more. You will challenge your balance, coordination and core activation. Additionally, the slight explosive effort that you need to generate in terms to execute the switch will certainly help you develop stronger and more athletic legs.
2. Bear crawling with jumping squat - this is a whole body, bodyweight exercise that will work pump your whole body. The crawling is one of my favorite bodyweight exercises, and when you combine it with a jumping squat, you get a complete movement that will challenge not just your muscles but your cardio/lungs work as well. It's a serious conditioning challenge and you will feel that for sure.
3. Crab toe touches - looks easy but it's not. You'll be surprised how tough this bodyweight exercise is. Especially when you have to perform it after the bear crawl. Your shoulders, whole upper back, core, arms and chest will work well. This is a movement that is more focused on your core strength and balance. But implementing it after the crawling will be way more than a core exercise.
