(techno music) – Alright, guys, let’s get started. And if you don’t have the Thenx app, it’s available on iOS and Android; and you can become a member at thenx.com to get full access to all
of our technique guides, programs, and daily workouts. When you open up the Thenx app, you’re gonna see programs, technique guides, and daily workouts. We’re gonna hit Programs; we’re gonna go with the beginner program. We’re gonna do part two: legs. As you see at the top, there’s a timer for when we start the workout. When you’re all completed,
you hit Mark as Completed. Alright, so this is the workout for today. We’re gonna go ahead;
we’ve got two rounds. We’re gonna go ahead and start that timer. If you guys are unsure about
any of these exercises, you can always click on Exercise, and it’ll show you a
video on how to do it. So, first off, we have
squat lunges, 30 seconds. When you’re performing a
squat, you want the weight to be on your heels, you want
your chest up, back straight. You wanta make sure that your legs reach at least a 90-degree angle. You can always go lower. And with lunges, you
wanta make sure to try to keep your shins and legs straight; and you don’t want your
knees going past your toes. And like I said with squats, you wanta go to at least 90 degrees
with your forward leg. Alright, let’s get started. I’m gonna start the timer;
you’ve got 30 seconds. (lively percussive music) Whoo. So, after each exercise,
we take a 15-second rest; but if you’re feeling good,
you can always push yourself and cut that rest time. So, next up, we have Bulgarian
split squats. (bell ringing) If you’re unfamiliar with the exercise, you can always just click on
it, and you’ll see a video on how to do it. Alright, we’re gonna
use this box over here. We have 10 each leg. (lively percussive music) Whoo. That’s a good one. The thing I like about that exercise is it helps build balance as
well as strength in each leg. So, next up, we have lunges
is what it looks like. (techno music) Alright, we got 10 in each leg; let’s go. (techno music) Whoo, whoo. Alright, we’re gonna go
right into jump squats, and that’s kinda self-explanatory. You wanta go all the way down, and you wanta jump as high as you can. We’re goin’ for 14. (lively percussive music) – [Singer] ♪ It’s heavy on the music. ♪ (lively percussive music) – Whoo. That was definitely the toughest one yet. Let’s keep movin’. Next up, we have jumping jacks. I’m sure you guys know what that is. If not, you can always
click on that video, and it’ll show you just how to do it. Alright, we’ve got 40. Let’s go. (lively percussive music) Whoo. So with that exercise; it’s actually gonna be
the opposite of a squat. You’re gonna want to put all your weight on the balls of your feet. It’s a great exercise to
get that heart rate up and break a sweat, as you can see. Next up, (exhales loudly) we just have regular squats. So, remember, you want
quality over quantity. Let’s do good form. Let’s go for 20. (lively percussive music) Remember, guys, you want your feet shoulder-width apart. You wanta break that 90-degrees angle. You wanta keep your chest up. Whoo. Alright, next up, we have side squats. Now you guys know how to do it. Let’s get right into it. We got 10 each leg; let’s go (techno music) Whoo. It’s really important to focus on keepin’ that outer leg straight. And the same thing as with regular squats, you wanta break 90 degrees
with the inner leg. Alright, next up, we have crab walks. That may be an exercise that a lotta people aren’t familiar with; but it’s a good thing
that if we click on it, it shows us exactly how to do it. Alright, with this one,
we’re gonna walk 20 feet. You wanta stay low; you wanta try to stay at that 90-degree angle the whole time. Let’s go for it. Ninety degrees, stay low. (lively percussive music) Remember, you always wanta push yourself, but if you need to take a
break, stop for a second, catch your breath, and then
get right back into it. Almost done. (lively percussive music) Whoo. These exercises just keep
gettin’ harder and harder. Let’s see what we got next. We got calf raises, 15 each leg. With this exercise, you can use a bar or even a wall for resistance. So let’s go. You wanta go all the way up, both our feet really flex that calf, back down. (lively percussive music) Five more, three, two, one. So with those, when you get
to the peak of the movement, you wanta make sure to squeeze and flex that calf really tight and
have a slight hold at the top. Alright, last but not least, we have wall sits for 45 seconds. As you can see, keepin’
this back straight, keepin’ the legs at 90 degrees, and we’re gonna do 10. Alright, let’s get ready to do it. Legs at 90 degrees, back
straight, 45 seconds. (lively percussive music) If you’re not able to hold
this for the full 45 seconds, you can always rest
your hands on your legs for a little assistance. But try to really push
through and not use that. (lively percussive music) (exhales loudly) If this exercise is too easy for you, you can actually get
up on your tippy toes, and you’ll get lots more. (lively percussive music) Whoo. (lively percussive music) Five, four, three, two, one. Whoo. Alright, guys, that’s it for round one. You’ve got two more rounds. Don’t forget, after you
