Trainer/Workout by: Nikki
Equipment: 2 Lebert Equalizers
Complete 3 sets of 10 reps. Modify reps per your fitness level. If form breaks, stop, rest and then begin a new set.
Single Leg Inverted Row
Place yourself between two Lebert Equalizers with your shoulders under the bars. Align your hands over your shoulders and hold the bars. Keep feet on the ground with your knees bent at a 90 degree angle. Extend and straighten your right leg. Pull your chest up and extend your leg to a 90 degree angle. Lower your leg back down to the starting point as your arms straighten. Repeat on opposite leg, 5x each.
Tip: Your torso should remain in the same position during the entire exercise. Keep core engaged throughout the whole movement.
Upright Crunch and Dip
Begin by holding your body up between the two bars in an elevated position, keep the chest up. Bring both knees close to your chest for the "crunch" move. Keep your elbows pointing backwards and lower down in to a tricep dip. Push down and straighten your elbows to come back up. Repeat 10x.
Floating Runner's Lunge + Lowered Runner's Lunge
Begin by holding your body up between the two bars in an elevated position. Keep one leg bent to 90 degrees and the other leg extended straight back. Switch legs and bend the opposite leg while the other straightens back. Next, lower down into a tricep dip, repeating the same movement with the legs, but hold the dip in the down position. Raise back up. Repeat 10x.
Tip: Try to keep your chest up throughout the entire movement. Make sure you are extending your leg back as far as possible to activate the hamstring muscles.
Single Bar Burpee
Hold the bar on both sides, feet positioned slightly wider than hip width apart. Make sure the top of the bar is positioned behind the body. While holding the bar, lower down into a squat position and place the bar on the floor, still gripping the sides of the bar. Once the bar is on the ground, jump your feet over the bar and land in a plank position. Jump over the bar again and land with your feet inside of the bar. Keeping your chest up as much as possible, stand up and finish with a jump. Repeat 10x.
Single Bar Pull Up + Tuck Up
Sit under bar with your legs straightened out in front of you. Grip the bar with a bicep grip (palms facing up). Pull up, keeping legs straight out in "L" position. Lower down landing on your sacrum while keeping your legs and feet off the ground. Tuck knees in toward chest and straighten legs back in the "L" sit. Repeat 10x.
