Uranos – What To Know
The two kilometer run is the single most dreaded part of this routine. Ideally, it should be completed in less than twelve minutes. Even for the least enthusiast runners, taking more than fifteen minutes to complete the run takes the adrenaline rush out of it. The fifty pushups are also quite punishing but the returns are worth the effort.
To perform them, ensure that your body is in an inclined plank position with the weight of the upper part of your body resting on your arms.
- Bend your arms along the length of your body to lower your weight, once you have reached the lowest point, taking care not to touch the floor, straighten your arms to lift yourself up.
The pushups workout regimen can be performed in many variations like using a weight vest or doing single arm pushups which are very challenging.The pullups should be performed on a stable bar.
To begin the pullups, suspend your body in a dead-man’s hanging position.Pull up your body until your chin is above the bar and lower your weight to the original position.
This completes one repetition. Your palms should face away from your body as you grab the bar. While the burpees are also quite a challenge, they can be easily managed by dividing them into sets.
- Begin with your legs slightly apart and perform a sitting movement, hinge on your hips when your knees start to bend.
- At the lowest point of the squat, place your hands on the floor and stretch your legs behind you.
- This will get you in a pushup position, execute one pushup and retract your legs. Jump out of this position to the original standing posture.
For the climbers, hold the floor with both hand in a plank position.Bend one leg and bring it under your body while keeping the other one stretched. Alternate the motion with the other leg to complete a cycle. You may increase the pace to maximize on the intensity.
While performing the jumps, it is important that your knees get to your waist level. Start in a standing position with your feet together. Bend your knees and launch yourself into the air. Land in the original position to complete a single repetition.
