Top Tips:

Break up the Thrusters - 2 sets would be ideal.  Push-ups go to your knees if this movement is slowing you down.  


Workout Description:

Set your timer to countdown from 10 min.  Start with skipping, move on to sit-ups, thrusters finishing each round with push-ups.  Take note of how many rounds and reps you complete of the workout and record score to wodify.


Movements:

Single Under Skips: 1 Rotation of the rope under your feet. Keep feet together and hands close to sides. Move your wrists rather than big arms swings. If you have Double Unders as a skill - use them! If you don't have a rope then toe taps to a single dumbbell is a great sub (2 taps = 1 skip)

Sit-ups: Use an ab-mat, cushion or jumper to place under your lower back for support. Bring feet together in bent leg position. Lay down and bring your arms up overhead reaching for the floor. Rapidly extend upwards and bring your hands towards the front of your feet. If this is a challenge and your feet keep popping up - find a place to anchor them! For overhead DB sit-ups - hold the dumbbell with 2 hands and do not bring the dumbbell back to the floor, keep it overhead with arms locked out. As you come up bring your head between your arms. Scale option is a crunch, hands behind head, feet anchored, crunch rib cage down towards pelvis.

Thruster: Feet are set just under the shoulders in squat stance. Elbows in front of the dumbbells, dumbbells rest on your shoulders (front rack position). Hips descend back and down, bringing hips lower than top of knees, lumbar curve maintained, knees in line with toes keeping elbows off knees in bottom position, hips and knees extend rapidly, then arms press up and overhead. Complete at when standing tall.

Tip: wait until you have squeezed your bum before DB's travel overhead. Then wait until DB's return to your shoulders before you descent into your squat.

Push-up: Starting in a plank position with hands just outside of shoulders and arms fully locked out. Squeeze your tummy tight and bum hard keeping feet together. Descend sending your elbows back the way until chest and thighs contact the floor, then drive up hard through your hands to full lockout of the elbows. Variations include: On toes to descend, on knees to ascend. On knees descend and ascend. On toes to raised object (table height works well).
