How to do Break Dance

Back to Exercises

Difficulty: Hard

Impact Level: High

Target Body Parts: abs, triceps, lower back, shoulders, quadriceps


Begin on the floor at the top of the push-up position. Set your hands on the floor at shoulder width and underneath your shoulders to stack your arm joints. Engage your core, your legs and your glutes to brace your body. Then lift your left arm up to the ceiling, rotate your body to the left and at the same time pick up your right leg, sweep it underneath your body and kick it out to the left hand side at the same level as your hip. The rest of your body should stay tensed and strong like a plank to support you whilst you balance on one hand and one foot.

Then rotate back around and return your left hand and right foot to their start positions and then swap arms and legs to repeat the rotation and kick out to the right hand side.
