Workout Description

Set your timer to count up, on the starter signal begin 10 Swings, then 10 Goblet squats, 10 swings, 10 lunges (5/leg), 10 swings and finish with 10 jump overs / step-overs.  Start with something small and soft on the floor if jumping is new to you (like a stuffed toy or jumper).  Complete 2 more rounds and record total time to wodify.

Movements:

American Dumbbell Swings: Feet set up slightly wider than squat stance. DB comes down through the legs (high) with straight arms. The swing is a hinge, not a squat. Explode from the hips on the way up by squeezing glutes. Do NOT lean back at the top of the swing, keep abs engaged to avoid this. DB goes all the way overhead with biceps beside ears.

Russian Dumbbell Swings: This is performed the exact same as the American swing however you only bring the DB/KB up to eye level.

Goblet Squat: Set your feet under your shoulders. Position 1x Dumbbell/Kettlebell close into your chest, chest up, hands on either side of the DB. Hips slightly move back, and descend down. Hips descend lower than the knees. Keep your weight back in your heels. Drive your knees out hard and rise to full extension at the top.

Static Lunge: Start with feet under hips. Take a big lunge/step forward, don't let knee track further than toes and bring the back knee down to touch floor. Drive through your heel and bum to full stand and swap legs.

Jump Overs/Step-Ups: Feet start under your hips/shoulders, dip slightly and jump high brining your knees as close to your torso as you can landing softly over object. If you are stepping up to an object, fully stand at the top before you step back down.
