Travel WOD 12.30.2016
You're never in a bad place to stay fit
Hey guys, we're back with another good travel WOD for the end of the year. Obviously it's the time of the year where we are with friends, family and are in the spirit of overindulging. It's all too easy to fall into, so here's a great hotel room workout to help keep us in line with our fitness goals for the summer and beyond.
I just did this one today - so be sure to focus on FORM, not TIME. Structure and attention to detail is key for long lasting endurance, form and preventing injury.
Here's the WOD:
60 SECOND HANDSTAND HOLD
60 AIR SQUATS
60 SECOND PLANK
REST 30 SECONDS IN-BETWEEN EACH ROUND
Obviously the tough part here is not being able to 'kick up' to the wall to get into a handstand, but with some practice in the box (and outside of it) you'll get it in no time. Make sure to lock those elbows out and BREATHE and you'll be in good shape.
With those air squats....make sure to get LOW. And by low, I mean your hips should be below your knees and your back should be straight. With both the air squats, planks and handstand hold, you'll get a great ab workout in (because your diaphragm should be locked in with your core).
If all goes well, you'll feel it tomorrow. 180 air squats is A LOT. Pace yourself. Time isn't everything, form counts in these travel WOD's. Watch the video below if you need help with handstand holds.
