May the Force be with you! Star Wars Workout
Whether you are a fan of Star Wars or not, we are sure that you have heard about the latest premiere of the Star Wars saga, The Force Awakens. If your goal is to become a member of the Jedi Order, you can say so without fear. Our special Jedi Training Plan is designed to make you stop being a Padawan and become a true Jedi Master.
Carefully read the training we propose below and combine it with a proper diet. You will soon begin to notice The Force Awakens!
The following Workout includes a large number of energetic movements that will activate your nervous system, help you get incredible muscles and your body will feel “powerful”.
It also includes some static exercises that will not leave a muscle in your body safe. It also includes resistance exercises.
Duration: 30-45 minutes
A wall to lean on when you handstand
A bar to rise
A box or training bench to jump on
Find space for exercises where you have to go in a straight line
Dumbbells or kettlebell
If you regularly go to the gym, all this equipment should not be difficult to find. If you train at home, there is always the option to buy what you do not have, but let’s be creative, try to find things that you can use.
ALWAYS warm up before starting the workout and stretch well when you’re done.
1: SkyWalker Handstands
Padawan: 5 minutes in plank / plank position
Jedi: 5 minutes practicing the pine tree leaning against the wall
Master: 5 minutes practicing the pine without a wall
2: Jedi High Jumps
Padawan: 3 sets of 15 Squats
Jedi: 3 Sets of 10 jump Squats
Master: 3 sets of jumps 15 on bench or box.
Look for a box or bench about 60cm high. Think as if you were Obi-Wan, focus to jump with all your energy and get on the bench. When falling, do it gently on the tips of your feet first and the knees bent, that way you will absorb the impact progressively without damaging any joint. Get off the surface and repeat the jump up to 15 times. The higher the platform, the greater the challenge.
In case you can’t do this exercise, do jump squats.

Padawan: 3 sets of 10 dumbbells
Jedi: 3 sets of 10 bodyweight
Master: 3 sets of 10 bodyweight at Bench Press / Leg Bench

Padawan: 4 sets of 8 Wall or Floor Pilometric Push-ups
Jedi: 4 sets of 8 Pilometric Knee Push-ups
