Disney Princess Approved FULL BODY Workout Part 2!

Here’s what you have been waiting for!

Part 2 of the Disney Princess Approved FULL BODY Workout! 

FITNESS STRENGTH TRAINING

Ariel, Tiana, Aurora, Merida, and (my favorite) Belle are joining us for a complete KICK BUTT strength training sweat session. Try out this circuit and add it to Part 1 for an incredible FULL BODY workout!

**** Repeat the provided circuit 3 times (or make this your goal and work up to three sets)

Princess Approved Ariel Crab Kicks

Crab Kicks: This is a TOUGH one!

  • Drop down into a crab position with knees bent and straight arms with your hands planted underneath your shoulders.
  • Extend one leg up into the air.
  • Jump to quickly switch legs, ending up with the second leg up instead.
    • Work hard to keep your bottom off the mat and speed up once you have the hang of it.
    • You may have to switch legs without the jump to get the feel of the exercise.
    • The main objective is to switch legs in mid-air, speed up as you get more comfortable with the position.

Princess Approved Tiana Jump Squats

Jumping Squats: Nothing beats jump training to tone your backside. This exercise will tone your glutes and your quads. It will also increase your heart rate, making jump squats an aerobic calorie-burning movement.

  • Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart.
  • Start by doing a regular squat.
    • Your butt and thighs should form a 90-degree angle at your knees.
      • Make sure your knees do not come forward past your toes.
      • Try not to allow your shoulders to come out past your knees.
  • Engage your core and jump up explosively off the ground.
  • When you land, lower your body back into the squat position.
  • The key is to maintain as much control as possible and land softly.

Princess Approved Aurora Plank

Plank: The plank has many fitness benefits, but it is most commonly referenced for strong abdominal muscles.

  • Lay face down on the floor with your legs extended.
    • Your elbows need to be on the floor directly under your shoulders.
  • Lift your torso and thighs off the floor so that your weight is on your elbows and toes.
    • Your torso and thighs should make a straight line.
    • Make sure to squeeze your abs so that your stomach and back do not droop.

Princess approved Merida Mountain Climbers

Mountain Climbers: 

  • Put yourself in a plank position with your arms extended straight (push up position).
  • Bring one knee forward until it is under your hip.
  • Explosively reverse the positions of your legs, extending the bent leg until the leg is straight and supported by the toe and bringing the other foot up while the hip and knee are flexed.
  • Repeat in an alternating fashion for 30 rations.
    • 1 mountain climber includes both leg positions.
    • Keep your abs tight and try not to bend your torso if you can help it.

Princess Approved Belle Burpees

Burpees (Because Belle Trains Like A BEAST!): I learned today that burpees became popular when they were used by the United States Armed Forces during WWII as part of an agility test. Burpees offer a full body workout, you will pretty much be working out every muscle in your body. Their intensity means you will burn more calories in a shorter amount of time.

Burpees are one of the best exercises EVER to boost
your conditioning and endurance for sports and other activities.

  • Stand straight, then lower into a squat position with your hands on the floor in front of you.
  • Kick or jump your feet back into a push-up position or plank.
  • Bow your chest up as you return your feet back to the squat position as fast as possible.
  • Jump up into the air as high as you can. You want explosive movements!
