The Yenny Workout Express
A 5-Exercise Total Body Workout You Can Do at HomeHere is a Yenny Boot Camp style work out program. This is a Yenny Challenge 30-minute total body workout, which you can do anywhere… at home, at the gym or in your office.
A total body workout is the perfect solution for busy moms and professionals — and people looking to train at home, but who may not have exercise equipment or very little of it. It’s perfect for people who shy away from the gym, or for whatever reason, can’t seem to squeeze enough time out of their week to get there regularly.
The Yenny Challenge is a collection of work out programs designed to help you train to the best of your abilities. They consist mostly of body weight exercises.
To do The Yenny Workout Express all you need is motivation and 20-30 minutes to train.
*Tip: We should strive to train in such a way that fatiguing one muscle group does not impair our ability to train another group later in the workout.
Here is the Yenny Workout Express:
Proceed through the exercises in the order as written.
*Note: I suggest that you refer to the instructional video I created for the Yenny Workout Express. I demonstrate the correct form you should strive for when you perform the exercises.
#1) Jumping Jacks: Perform 50-100 jumping jacks. This will increase your body circulation and raise your heart rate, lubricate your joints and warm up your muscles.
Try to do as many as you can without stopping. Remember that this is a challenge for you to train to the best of your abilities!
Rest: Depending on your fitness level rest 1-3 minutes if you have to before moving on to the next exercise
#2) Jumping Knee Raise: Stand straight with feet shoulder width apart; hands by your sides. Jump by raising one knee as high up as you can. Alternate from one leg to the other, as fast as you can.
#3) Mountain Climbs: Get yourself in a push-up position, which is similar to a plank hold.
#4) Wall Squats: Lean with your back straight against a wall, and lower your body into a squat position.
*For those of you who are trying to get in shape, I suggest you take it easy with this one. I’ve trained clients before who could not do 15 seconds. So be honest with yourself, and do the best you can for now.
Each week it should get easier, as your body gradually accommodates to the tension and weight of your own body, and as you increase your strength and endurance.
#5) Jumping Lunges: Get into a lunge position, step forward with one leg, lunge down, and jump up explosively landing on the opposite leg.
Now stretch! Congratulations…your workout is done!
