The Hands-Feet Bodyweight Workout

February 10, 2016

According to a statistic I just invented, the bottom of our feet is touching the floor for over 99% of our waking hours.

Considering that we are a mammalian species, that´s embarrassing.  Well, not all mammals use all fours for balance. Some like whales use none and are doing a permanent “look ma, no hand and no feet.” But whales are almost as weird as us, so they’re not the best example.

So for this workout, we’re splitting it fairly, we’re supporting our body 50% of the time with the feet and 50% with the hands.

And guys, if you’re not taking good care of both your feet and your hands, and you’re not giving them both enough time, you must be insane, because all the sane people do.

INSTRUCTIONS

For each exercise, do as many reps as you can in 60 seconds then immediately move to the next exercise. Once you finish 1 round, rest for 30-40 seconds. Do 5 total rounds.

EXERCISES

ADVANCED MODIFICATIONS

  • instead of regular push ups, do one arm push up
  • instead of front lunges, do pistol squats

BEGINNER MODIFICATIONS

  • you can do the exercises for less than 60 seconds, just make sure to stick with the amount of time you choose for all exercises
