Breaking Dawn battle prep workout

 
Can’t wait for the premiere of Breaking Dawn - Part 2? Neither can we! Work off your nervous energy as you countdown to your midnight showing with a battle-ready workout that’ll have ya ready to take to the field in defense of little Renesmee.

 

Jump on it

Pump up your cardio by grabbing a jump rope and getting down to business with an old-school boxing exercise, jumping rope. No skipping or bouncing on the balls of your feet allowed! Jump as fast as you can as cleanly as you can for 60 seconds. Rest for 30, then jump for 2 minutes. Rest for 30 seconds, then jump for 2:30. Continue, increasing your jump rope time by 30 second intervals, until you hit 5 minutes.

 

The old one-two

Drop your jump rope and grab two water bottles, holding one in each fist. Spread your feet about a foot and a half apart and bounce lightly on your toes, boxer-style. Keeping your joints loose, punch one fist forward, then the other. The movement forward should be quick, but draw your arm back to your sides in a slow, controlled manner. Feel the burn? Keep going! Do 20 reps on each side.

 

Marching orders

Get ready to march into battle by firming up your booty. Lunge your way around your house. Start by standing tall, arms at your sides. Take a big step forward with your left leg and bend your front and back knees so that they form 90-degree angles. Step your right leg forward and return to standing. Then, step forward with your right leg, repeating the same movement. Continue for five minutes.

 

Kick it!

Stand with your feet spread, your right foot angled slightly away from your body. Bring your hands to your chest, round your back slightly, and kick your left leg up and out, kick-boxer style. Squeeze your glutes as you kick. Use your abs to keep your leg stretched out into the air for five seconds, then slowly pull it back in. Rest for five seconds, then kick again. Repeat 10 times, then switch sides. Remember, go slow: you’re aiming for control, not speed.

 

Victory leap

Celebrate the Cullens triumphant victory over the Volturi by executing this “V” frog jump. Crouch down on the ground, feet spread shoulder-distance apart. In one quick movement, spring upward into the air, arms spread in a “V” shape. Pull your knees up to your chest and then land lightly back into your crouch. Repeat 10 times.
