“Hit the Deck” is designed to give you a full-body workout in a fun and engaging way. Let’s dive into the details of this energizing WOD:

Start with 8 deck squats, a fantastic exercise to enhance your lower body strength and mobility. Feel the burn in your glutes and thighs as you power through each squat.

Transition into 8 V-ups, an effective core exercise that targets your abs and improves your overall stability. Lift your legs and upper body simultaneously, forming a V shape with your body.

Amp up the intensity with 8 dips, targeting your triceps, chest, and shoulders. Use a bench or parallel bars to support your body weight and engage your upper body muscles.

Get your heart pumping with 8 2 elbows + knee strikes. This combination of punches and knee strikes will not only improve your striking technique but also boost your cardiovascular endurance.

Release your power with 8 guard punches, simulating a defensive position while delivering quick and powerful punches. Feel the energy flow through your arms as you engage your core and upper body.

Continue the momentum with 8 3 punch + kick combinations, incorporating punches and kicks to work on your coordination and full-body integration.

Strengthen your lower body with 8 goblet squats, holding a kettlebell close to your chest as you squat down. This exercise targets your quads, glutes, and hamstrings.

Finish strong with 5 bag slams, unleashing your power and releasing any built-up stress. Grab a sandbag or medicine ball and slam it down with force, engaging your entire body in the process.

Conclude the workout with 20 plank kickouts, challenging your core stability and targeting your abs and obliques.
