VIDEO: Plank + Plyo Bodyweight Workout
This high-energy plank and plyo bodyweight workout is a blast and can be done anywhere. Watch the video below and try it out while traveling this summer when you need a quick on-the-go workout!
As you’re reading this I should be just touching down in Italy. As I mentioned, I’m spending the next three weeks in the city of Genoa studying genes and longevity, one of the courses in my Masters of Nutrition program.
While I am thrilled to be traveling abroad (something I always wished I’d done in undergrad), I must admit, I will miss the comforts of home — my family, my kitchen, my bed, and of course, my favorite workout classes.
Since I’m guessing the power yoga and reformer pilates classes in Italy will be sparse, I’ve made sure to prepare workouts I can do anywhere, using just my bodyweight. One of those is today’s Plank + Plyo Bodyweight Workout.
My new “blend” (blogger/friend) Lindsey of Nourish Move Love was visiting from Minneapolis recently, and we met up on a beautiful day in Huntington Beach to shoot a video of this super sweaty burn sesh. If you don’t already follow her, get on it.
Lindsey is an incredible personal trainer, group fitness instructor, healthy food creator, and all around inspiring babe who regularly shares amazing, easy-to-follow workouts on her YouTube channel. I was so happy to discover that she is just as cool in person as she is in the blogosphere and I highly recommend you check her out!
So back to the workout — this video features 4 sets of exercises: 4 plyometric exercises supersetted (performed back to back) with 4 plank exercises. After completing each set, you can take a 15-30 second break or go straight into the next set.
Once you’ve completed all 4 sets, head over to Nourish Move Love for the other half of the workout.
That’s right — there are 8 sets total in the entire Plank + Plyo Bodyweight Workout. It’s a killer!!
