“Basic Training Exercises Let’s talk about some exercises you’re going
to be doing in basic training. There is no gym so don’t go to the gym to
prepare. Let me teach you some exercises you’re going
to do at basic training to get your mind and your muscles ready. The first thing we’re going to do is called
Flutter Kick. So with Flutter Kicks, what you want to do
is be on your back and your, your hands are going to be underneath your hips and you’re
just simply going to flutter your feet about six to twelve inches up in the air. Okay, just like this. Do this for about one minute and you’ll feel
it in your abs. They’ll be really tight. We can do Leg Spreaders next. Same position (inaudible) on your back and
side to side, like that. This is going to help your inner thighs, your
legs, your lower back, everything, your core of your body. Now I’m going to talk to you about Overhead
Clasps. It actually seems simply but it’s very difficult
after about a minute or so. You want to keep your hands out, extended
up to the sky, and you’re simply going to clap them over your head. Again, even without any weight, it seems easy
at first but will get very difficult. The next exercise I’m going to show you is
the Planks and you’re going to be very familiar with what a Plank is. You want to get on your forearms and toes
like this and simply hold, hold your body weight with a nice straight back. You’re going to feel it in your core, in your
lower back, your legs, your stomach, everything. It’s going to strengthen all of that whole
area. Now if you want to make it even more difficult
on yourself, get yourself an ab ball, get on your knees and spell the words Basic Training
with your elbows, so I’m making a B. Now I’m doing an A and so on. That’ll make your body even more (inaudible)
micro adjustments to the balancing of the ab ball. The next exercise is toe touches. Again, it’s just like the Overhead Clasps. Seems easy to do but it’s not really after
about a minute. Start in a position like this, your hands
on your hips, toes are forward, your body is straight and all you’re going to do is
bend over, touch the sides of your heels and come back up like this. This works your legs, even your back a little
bit. Basically you’re squatting your body weight. The next thing I want to show you is Ski Jumpers,
one of my least favorite exercises, but again, you’re going to be very familiar with this
in basic training. Your hands are going to be on your head and
you’re going to jump from side to side. Picture yourself, if you don’t have a cone,
picture yourself jumping over a cone. You’ll go like this. The next exercise I want to show you is called
a Donkey Kick. Nobody’s favorite. Put your hands on your head. You’re basically going to want to kick your
butt with your heels. It’s also called Mule Kicks. Now the last exercise I’m going to show you
is the Mountain Climber. This one’s tough. You’re going to move your feet in and out
three or four feet, just like you’re running in place. So it’s going to be like this and like this.
