If you don’t think I’m crazy already, this might put the nail in the coffin! This is a great exercise to add at the end of a run (or even in the middle!) or to any part of an exercise routine. This will work your whole body and the longer you do it, the harder it will be. Work your way up to it!
I have a short video at the end explaining it!
Start with both hands on the ground, shoulder-width apart. Feet at the bottom of a tree or wall.
Kick both legs up on the tree (wall). Kick as high and as fast as you can. Breathe and keep the torso and upper body solid..
To make it harder, run (sprint) at the top of the tree. Go as fast as you can!
REPS: 2-3 sets of 25 kicks or runs. You can also do it for time and try to work your way up. Start with 10 seconds and move your way up in 5 second intervals! You’ll know when you’ve worked those muscles!
