Hey, are you looking for a fun fitness challenge with just your body weight?
I’ve created a Ninja themed workout to do at home.
Hi, it’s Ivana, helping you get fit healthy and strong at any age.
In this video, I’m sharing a Ninja workout to do at home with only body weight.
Now this isn’t any authentic Ninja experience or anything like that.
I have been a martial artist for over 30 years, but it’s more like the Hollywood idea of the Ninja.
The Complete Ninja Workout
So we’re going to have a bit of fun here, and I’m not going to do any crazy flips because I can’t do those. So if you’re reasonably fit, you should be able to do this.
It’s a good idea to warm up for five to 10 minutes.
Please do that and let’s get to the workout.
We’re going to start off on the floor for some Ninja style, fingertip pushups.
So make sure you’re up on all five fingers.
If those are too tough for you, you can try martial arts style on your front two knuckles. And of course you can just do them on your hands as well.
Jump Up From Knees
Now we’re going to do the fun way of jumping up from your knee.
Now these are like pretty tricky at first, but actually my six year old can do them.
This is normally used in Jiu Jitsu to get up from the ground.
Now we’re going to do some crawling planks. So get into the plank position on your forearms and on your toes. And then you can crawl for
Side to side, just using different angles.
Squat And Kick
Now we’re going to be doing some kicking. The hardest part for me is going to be not kicking that counter right there. Wish me luck.
Deep Squat Jumps
We’re going to do some deep squat jumps because ninjas are supposed to be really good at jumping on to things. So a ninja workout needs to have some jumping.
Bring it down. You can also just do this as a deep squat, if you like so up and
Imaginary Sword Swing
Now ninjas are also supposed to be very good with weapons, particularly swords. I’ve got a plastic one here from when I dressed up as the bride from kill bill for Halloween many years ago.
But I’m going to assume you don’t have that. I’m just going to show you first. It’s a sword swing. Then you switch legs and swing from the other side. Swing. And Swing. Whoa, I got some sound. Woosh.
Now I’m going to show you without the sword. Just bring the hands together. Pretend you’re holding a sword.
Cossack Squat With Arm Pose
Now here’s one I really like. It’s the Cossack Squat with the arm post.
Cossack squats are great martial arts exercises. We’re going to do this foot flat, bend one knee and arms up and just look in that direction and switch. Nice and strong. Pretend you’re doing a flying sidekick or something.
