This week’s workout of the week is new, but with a distinctly familiar flavor! Designed to feel like the benchmark workout “Cindy”, this week’s 20 minute body weight workout will thrill anyone that likes to get upside-down!
As many rounds and reps as possible in 20 minutes:
5 Chest To Bar Pull-ups
10 Air Squats
25’ Handstand Walk
We’ve got 20 minutes of fun today! Our rounds are short and fast, so we’re looking to accumulate a lot of them. Our goal is to get into the double digits and for some, it’ll be chasing that minute-a-round pace, for a total of 20 rounds!
Our chest to bar pull-ups and air squats are pretty straight forward: small, “light” sets that we need to keep moving through. This may require us to do regular pull-ups or use a toe-assisted variation that allows us to keep the 5 reps unbroken throughout the workout. The air squats will serve as a nice break for our arms and a good opportunity to catch our breath!
The handstand walk is where things get tricky though! If you’ve got this skill, we want to break our 25 feet into 5 equally sized segments that will each serve as a repetition. Our goal should be to do all 5 reps unbroken for the full 25 foot length each time. If this is aggressive, we can always reduce our distance to 10 or 15 feet (still using the 5 foot segment as our base for reps).
If we’re still workout on walking on our hands, the bear crawl will serve as an excellent alternative! If it’s an easy choice for you, go faster! Use this as an opportunity to chase down 20 or more rounds!
