Move #1: Jab-Cross As Fast As Possible
Non-stop jab cross as fast as possible! In your fighter stance, fully extend your straight punches, rotating through your core and staying grounded through your stance, working on speed!
Move #2: Push-Up into Shoulder Taps
Perform one pushup on your toes or modify to knees, then hold your plank and tap your opposite shoulder. Stabilize your core by limiting any rotation, keep your hips square to the floor.
Move #3: Hop-Hop Squat
Perform 2 hops, like you would when you jump rope then 1 squat. Light on the toes when hopping then land light into a squat position; feet just outside hip width, knees tracking the toes and neutral spine.
Move #4: 10 Straight Punches + 1 Burpee
Perform 10 straight punches in your fighters stance then square up in a wide athletic stance and perform 1 burpee. Hands under shoulders, hop the legs out into a high plank position, jump the legs in so the feet land outside of your hand in a squat position and drive through your legs into a power squat jump.
Move #5: Sit-Up, Punch, Punch
Sit up position, lying on your back with feet hid width apart, knees bent, hands behind your head, elbows wide, perform one sit up, at the top of your sit up punch and rotate (jab – cross). As you punch rotate your core and extend your punch!
