This week we are getting a look behind the scenes of New York City's toughest workout, Tone House. Start by checking out our sit down with the founder of TH, Alonzo Wilson, found here and then get a small sampling of what this workout is like by following the routine outlined below.
As always, begin with a 10 minute warm-up, consisting of some cardio, dynamic stretching and any specific injury prevention or mobility that you need.
Find an open spot in a gym or on a field and do 3-4 rounds of the following circuit, with no rest in between movements and 2 mins. rest between each round. For a real challenge, cut the rest between round in half or increase the reps per movement.
Scorpion Push-Up: Begin in plank position. Complete one push-up and then flip over to the left and plant your left foot. Lift the right leg off the ground and touch your left toe with your left hand. Flip back over to starting position and repeat to the right. Continue alternating back and forth, 10 on each side.
Plyo Knee Tuck Push-Up: Begin in plank position. Keep the hands planted on the ground and kick both feet up and off the ground. Land back in plank position and complete one push-up. Do 20 times.
Push-up/Squat Jump: Begin in plank position. Complete one push-up and then jump your feet to your hands. Then, jump straight up as high as you can. Jump the feet back to starting plank position and repeat. Do 20 times.
