The Gaia freeletics routine in the freeletics workout program is a HIT workout that focuses on your core and legs. This training routine is ideal for increasing your cardio output while still maintaining a high degree of difficulty without being overbearing.
The Gaia Freeletics routine:
10 Rounds on Standard:
- Jumping Jacks – 40
- Jumps – 30
- Climbers – 20
- Standups -10
The stand ups and froggers are the most challenging part of this routine, with the stand ups being a bit difficult to perform perfectly. As with other challenging routines, this regimen can be managed by performing them in sets.
Warming up is vitally important for this routine. I found that you will need to make sure your glutes, calves, backs, shoulders, hamstrings, biceps and triceps are warmed up.
- Stand up in a straight posture with your arms at your sides.
- Slightly bend your knees and jump into the air, while ascending, move your legs shoulder width apart and at the same time bring your arms above your head.
- You should land with your legs apart and your arms held together above your head. Jump again and lower your hands, this time, you should land with your legs together.
This completes one repetition, repeat the procedure for the specified number of times. Perform some cool down stretching once you complete the procedure.
- When performing the jumps, ensure that you begin in a standing position with your arms at your side.
- Propel your body up in the air, your knees should meet your chest. Froggers are good for firming the inner thigh muscles.
- Stand with your feet shoulder width apart, bend at your knees and hold the floor with your hands. Without lifting your hands off the floor, straighten your legs and bend them to complete a cycle.
- Focus on form rather than number of rounds, if you have tight hamstrings, try to go up to the point where you are comfortable. Stand ups improve your posture and strengthen your core.
It strengthens the hips and pelvis muscles as well as the abs. This is because you engage many muscles at once and burn more calories than conventional floor exercises. Additionally, no equipment is needed for this routine.
Taking deep breaths while performing the Gaia routine is imperative to ensure that your muscles do not cramp.
