Matt: What’s up guys? This is Matt and Greg with Project Unbroken. Do us a favor, hit that subscribe button. We’ve been getting a lot of feedback, people asking how do I get back in shape, I want to feel better, look better, whatever. So Greg and I wanted to start putting out a little bit of content of something we started with to kind of get ourselves back into better shape. So today we’re going to go over a couple movements that we use almost every single day and we think that you guys will really like this. Very beginner friendly workout and you’ll be able to challenge yourself a little bit and see how you do.
Matt: So, what we’re going to do today is two different movements. I’m going to have Greg demonstrate. We’re going to start with the air squat.
Greg: My slippers are on.
Matt: Yeah with his slippers. So Greg’s going to be demonstrating the air squat. What we’re trying to do here is have our feet underneath the hips. We’ll keep our chest nice and tall and Greg’s going to set his hips back to the wall behind him, squat down as low as he can and stand right back up. So if you guys are worried about squatting down that low, what you can do is go over to your couch or any chair and just stand a little bit in front, send your hips back, touch and then stand right back up. This is going to be a great strategy if you’re new to exercising or to the squat in particular. It’s going to be a great option for you guys.
Matt: The next movement we’re going to go over is the push up. So push ups are tough, Greg’s going to come all the way down to the floor, chest to deck and then he’s pushing all the way back up. So if you guys are having trouble with this movement, there’s a couple things you can do. One, you can come down and Greg’s going to go to his knees this time, take that angle away a little bit. It’s going to make it a little bit easier for him to do a push up and then if you’re even struggling with that, I want you guys to just lay flat on the floor, try to hold a plank position so that means just keep your belly tight and then just try to come up. Exactly, we’ll hold that for just 30 seconds or as long as you can and we’re going to count that as our push ups for today start working on that core strength a little bit.
Greg: And for people maybe who are more advanced, this looks easy. Go for it as hard as you can. So start in an air squat. That’s one, two, three, four, five, six, seven. Push ups, one, two, three and so if you’re in good shape go through that as quick as you can. If you can’t, one, two. That’s fine, just go as quick as you can and see how you can do.
Matt: So what we’re going to be doing guys is you’re going to set a clock for five minutes and you’re going to run through seven air squats and three push ups. When you get through that. Start again with the air squats. Do it as many times as you can in those five minutes. Like Greg said, if it’s not challenging you at all you can always go faster. Anyone can make this workout difficult. It’s just a matter of intensity and how quick you’re going. So do us a favor, give it a shot, it’s only five minutes and I promise you that you’re going to feel better after you run through this. Leave us a comment, let us know how you guys do on this one, like how many rounds you get through or whatever and how you feel. I guarantee you’re going to feel better after you get the kind of heart pumping a little bit, and get some gains going. So thanks for watching guys, let us know how you do, we’ll keep these videos coming and we look forward to talking to you soon.
Greg: See y’all.
