“Black Widow” is an awesome song! It’s fun, has lots of energy, and is different from many songs out at the moment! I enjoyed making this workout for you to be high energy as well as slinky and sexy.
There’s a lot of variety to this workout! The workout has lots of leg work and a full-body workout. You’ll find clapping, kicking, punching, lunges, squats, and so much more. There are even some spidery-like movements in it. 🙂
Try to keep your knees in line with your ankles when you’re lunging or doing squat-like-exercises.
JUST KEEP MOVING
The breakdown is made for you to go through as many times as you need. You may want to go through it before you do the full workout each time. You may want to do it one to three times and just do the full workout otherwise. Remember, it is for you and what you need specifically. Use it to suit your needs best!
This is a full-body cardio and toning workout. Keep your core engaged to get the most benefit for your abs and to protect your body. Activate your core throughout the routine by lengthening your body and drawing your belly button into your spine. You shouldn’t feel the moves or routine in your lower back. If you do find you feel it in your lower back, activate your abdominals and glutes even more.
Do a warmup before this workout and a cool-down after. You may also choose to do the breakdown a couple of times as you warm up.
Here are some ideas for you to use this workout (times are approximate):
15-Minute Workout – Do the breakdown 1x and full workout 2x. This would be slightly longer when cooling down.
30 -Minute Workout – Do the breakdown 2x and full workout 4x.
45-Minute Workout – Do the breakdown 3x and full workout 6x. Repeat breakdown and full workout alternating each 2x. Follow with approximately 5-minute cool-down.
