Body Weight and Balance

Eva Menzo: Osprey

Body weight and balance

Necessary Equipment:
Floor object like a small footstool or kettlebell
A little bit of floor space

Three rounds of the following:

6 times:  Begin at standing. Kneel then get up to standing
6 times: Balance on one foot and then touch an object like a kettlebell on the floor
6 times: start at standing:  get into plank position, then stand up
6 times:  plank toe touch (stand a few inches away from the kettlebell. alternating feet, tap the top of the kettlebell as quickly as possible with your foot)
6 times: start in plank position, then jump or step both legs up toward hands, (while keeping hands on the floor)
6 times:  plank taps (get in plank position an arms length away from the kettlebell or other object) alternate arms and reach out and touch that object

Rest to the point that you can start the next round with the vigor close to the degree you started the previous round. Vary the repetitions and rounds so that you are able to keep moving but feel challenged.
