The Star Wars Exercise Challenge ...


You don't need the force to conquer your New Years' fitness resolutions, but adding Star Wars to your work out routine never hurts!

And if you're anything like me, the latest Star Wars has you watching all the old ones all over again!

That means watching a lot of TV— time you could use more effectively.

Luckily, with this Star Wars exercise challenge, you can have a guilt-free binge-watching session!

1. Light Saber

Light Saber

Challenge: 5 burpees

Pretty sure those light sabers aren't so easy to carry!2

If you want to be as strong as a Jedi, do five burpees every time you see someone use a light saber.

If you haven't done burpees before, all you do is drop into a plank and jump back up, then repeat.

If you're feeling daring, add in a pushup while you're in plank!

2. Use Force

Use Force

Challenge: 30 sec wall sit, 30 sec plank

Using the force is all about concentration and mastering the skill of mind over matter.

You'll have to apply the same concept when you endure a 30 second wall sit and 30 second plank.

Your legs and core will thank you later!

3. Flying in Space

Flying in Space

Challenge: 10 squat jumps

Don't you ever wish you could fly from planet to planet as easily as Han Solo does?

Unfortunately we can't fly—yet!—but we certainly can jump!

Every time you see someone flying a spaceship, do 10 squat jumps.

4. Storm Troopers

Storm Troopers

Challenge: 10 Toy Soldiers (5 per leg)

Storm Troopers don't get to be the most fearsome army in the galaxy by just sitting on a couch eating popcorn, do they?

No, they work hard just like you!

Every time you see a group of storm troopers march in for battle, do 10 toy soldiers.

In order to do this challenge kick your left leg to right hand, then right leg to left hand, and repeat for a total of five times each leg.

Make sure to keep your spine tall and your core strong!
