TRAIN #LIKENINA



Nina Dobrev for Reebok and LES MILLS

LES MILLS GRIT 4‑week training program


WEEK 2 WORKOUT MOVE: SWITCH CLIMBER

Move breakdown:

  • Start in plank position with your arms straight and directly beneath your shoulders
  • Keep your body straight and brace your core
  • Jump your left foot to the outside of your left hand
  • As you jump your left foot back to plank position, jump your right foot outside of your right hand
  • Switch from side to side keeping your butt down

YOUR CHALLENGE

Show us how many Switch Climbers you can do in 1 minute (1 leg = 1 rep).

  1. Take a video of yourself doing the Switch Climbers or download this tile once you've done it.
  2. Post it to Instagram with how many reps you did.
  3. Tag: @nina, @lesmillstribe and #LIKENINA

Mastering this move will get you on track to doing Nina's workout and we want to see how you are getting on.

TOP TIP: START WITH A PLANK

An alternative to doing the Switch Climber is to hold in plank position for as long as you can. Once you've got that, try drawing your right knee in to your right elbow without your foot touching the ground. Then draw your left knee in to your left elbow. Try this a few times before advancing on to the Switch Climber.
