Get your pirate costumes ready: It’s time to work out like a pirate
Ahoy, mateys! For this week's episode of Tighten + Tone Tuesday I'll be teaching you the best piratey moves I know to prepare you for my live Work Out Like a Pirate fitness class this Friday*. Most of the moves included in this workout are bodyweight exercises. In fact, only the Bilge Toss requires some extra weight. Don't have a home gym yet? It's OK! Grab an old grog bottle (or detergent bottle), fill it up with water, pebbles, or sand and you'll be good to go. Other than a 5-10 lb weight or weighted object and your pirate costume, you may also want a fitness mat and sturdy bench. Both of these items are optional, but might help you feel more comfortable during the class. Have your supplies ready? Awesome! Check out the video to learn the moves to master today so you're ready on Friday*:
Do ye feel like a stronger pirate already? I hope so!
Here is a list of the moves so you can practice them:
1. Bilge Toss
2. Walking Plank
3. Battle Squat
4. Sword Fighting Step
5. Peg-Legged Mountain Climber
6. Plank-> Walk-> 1 Leg Deadlift
During the Work Out Like A Pirate class I'll have you complete these moves circuit style. I know you're going to get a GREAT workout in if you join us! UPDATE: This workout was held live in its first year on a Friday. For 2021 it will be held on the official Talk Like a Pirate Day date of Sunday, September 19th.
