Repeat, alternating sides with each step!

Black Widow Spider Push-ups!

Black Widow Spider Push-ups!

Start on the ground in a full push-up position. Your body should form a straight line from head to toe.
Regression: Do this move from your knees.
Next, bring your bent left knee out to side at hip level as you bend elbows to 90 degrees, keeping arms tucked close to ribs, so that right knee and elbow touch.
Press up and back to starting position.
Switch sides!

Creepy Crouching Squat Jumps...

...Scared to Death Leap!

…Scared to Death Leap!

Squat down…channel your inner creepy tactics to see how low you can go.
Keep your hips back so that knees do not go over the toes, back is straight and not hunched.
Immediately jump up into the air to execute your leap, extending out arms and legs.
Regression: Do not perform the jump and keep feet on the floor at all times.

Perform all 3 exercises for 30 seconds each, 3 times through.
Pair with some HITT and you can call it a day!

How about some edgy Halloween themed music to help motivate you! Yes please!!

Trick or Treat!
