Adventure Time is full of surprises. Friends and foes can come from the most unexpected quarters and there is no telling what power you are going to need to unleash within yourself. So you’d best be prepared for anything with a workout that trains you for almost anything. There is of course one extra element you will need for a true Adventure Time experience and that’s just the right dose of crazy. Unfortunately the workout doesn’t supply that last ingredient, you will need to provide it yourself.
Instructions: Repeat each move with no rest in between until the set is done, rest up to 2 minutes and repeat the whole set again 3, 5 or 7 times depending on your fitness level.
What it works: Quads, shoulders, lateral abs, lower back, triceps, front hip flexors, calves, core, cardiovascular system, aerobic performance (VO2 Max), glutes, hamstrings.
Tips: Breathe out through the nose, explosively, every time you tense a major muscle group during an exercise. It helps you add a little more power to each movement and control your breathing a lot more so you do not get out of breath so quickly.
Make it better: Add speed to high knees working your arms and bringing your knees up and down hard to turn this into a power exercise that also works your aerobic as well as cardiovascular systems.
Make it harder: Add height. When performing jump squats go for the sky. Try to get as high as you can with each and every jump. This helps you build explosiveness in your legs.
Body Types this can work for: Everyone can do this really, regardless. This is all about building functional strength and muscle control.
Perfect for: Curious minds with just the right dash of crazy who cannot say “No” to the pull of adventure. Oh, also brilliant for anyone looking for a total-body workout that focuses on functional strength and performance.
