Cinco De Mayo Prescription:
For demo purposes we did a shorter version. I want you to do 30 seconds of work, 10 seconds transition to the next exercise X 5 rounds or whatever feels manageable for you.
Move #1: Sangria Skipping
Get a rope and jump! Progression double unders. Option to mimic skipping by having your hands to your side and skip.
Move #2: Piñata Smashes
Knee drivers. Bring arms over head and imagine you are smashing a Piñata stick over your knees. 15 seconds per side. Using your ABs and total body.
Move #3: Cerveza Skaters
Side skaters. Reach out in front, and move side to side, stepping with your back foot behind the front. Keep a steady pace.
Move #4: Loco Lunges
Alternating front lunges. Front knee does not go over the front toe and there is a 90 degree bend for the front and back knee. Chest up, shoulders back and down, add your arms for a bicep workout. Progression is to add a hop to the transition.
Move #5: Tamali Touchdowns
Single Leg touch down. Hips square to the ground with a flat back.
