BTS No-Equipment Workout Challenge – Part 2
“Gon' pop like trouble breaking into your heart like that”
Below is Part 2 of BTS Jungkook’s workout routine that requires no exercise equipment which you can do in the comfort of your home! Are you ready for the challenge?
1. 20 Push-Ups
There are a variety of push-up variations that you can do: wall push-ups, kneeling push-ups, or standard push-ups.
Wall push-ups begin with you standing shoulder-width apart, at about an arm’s length away from the wall. Place your palms on the wall as you lean forward into a standing plank position. Your arms should also be kept shoulder-width apart. Slowly bring your upper body towards the wall while keeping your feet flat on the floor. Then extend your arms to slowly push your body back to your starting position.
For the kneeling push-ups, place a folded towel under your knees for extra cushioning. Your hands should be under your shoulders with your palms flat on the floor and your fingers positioning in front of you. Slowly lower your elbows to bring your chest towards the ground. Pause for a second and then push yourself up from the ground to the starting position. Try to maintain your gaze towards the floor to avoid straining your neck.
A standard push-up should be similar however you will be trying to bring your torso, chest and thighs off the ground while keeping your core engaged.
2. 20 Jump Squats
A jump squat includes an explosive jumping movement as you stand up from your squat. When you land, lower your body back into a starting squat position.
3. 20 Pike Push-Ups
While starting in a plank position, lift your hips up and back until your body forms an inverted V shape. Keep your arms and legs as straight as possible. Start to bend your elbows and lower your entire upper body towards the floor. Hold for a moment and then slowly push back up until your arms are straight and your body is back in the V position.
4. 20 Mountain Climbers
In a plank position, alternately bring your knees to your chest.
