Top 10 Athlete Workouts

1 Kettlebell Exercises

One of the best kettlebell exercises is the kettlebell snatch. Better to do fast snatches with 12kg and also can increase the weight of the bell but instead of increasing choose a bell weight which is good for your body weight maybe 8 or 10 or 12kg and go for a 5min long cycle with one switch.

The movement describes in a short sentence, it develops the mobility strength for the both upper body as well as lower body.


2 Lateral Monkey

Many of you might have missed lateral monkey while doing functional training exercises and there are several moves which anyone can do it easily. You can observe the movement, and this is full-body workout mobility and stability.

By doing this move slowly helps to reconstruct body joints especially arms. Many of the athletes have started Ido Portal.

Before kickstarting this move better to do more basic mobility exercises more.

Most athletes directly jump into agility ladder drills because it looks soo fancy that everyone would love to start immediately when looking at this, but before doing this lower body free exercises as well as more shin exercises required.

Work on four sides of the foot to strengthen the joints then calves and also include leg extension.

There are many types of squats to include but unfortunately, most of the athletes do only a few means 2 or 3 types of squats. For the betterment take the chance to strengthen the lower body.


9 Jump Ropes

This is a 2x energy generator exercise than running and cycling. You might have watched some of the athlete’s workout videos on youtube or TV shows. They do more jump ropes to increase their cardio level. There are other styles of jump ropes like double jump and criss-cross and many more.
