In the novel and film franchise Harry Potter, the wizards enjoy watching the fictional sport Quidditch.
The team has four positions:
Chasers- they pass around a large ball called a Quaffle, aiming to score in a small goal.
Beaters- they carry small bats, knocking balls called Bludgers off course, and away from harming members of their team.
Keeper- they protect their teams goals, much like a soccer goalie would.
Seeker- their main focus is to find the small winged ball, the Golden Snitch.
Requires a Medicine Ball
Quidditch takes strength, agility and a lean body. Follow this workout and you could be headed to the Quidditch World Cup in no time.
There will be two circuits, each will be repeated twice.
Each move will last ONE MINUTE, do as many reps as possible.
Warm up for 5 minutes, stretching after to prevent injuries.
Quaffle Pass- standing with your legs shoulder width apart, lift medicine ball high above your head with both arms, swing it down through your legs into a squat position, then bring it back up in a swift movement.
Levitating Pushups- In pushup position, balance one hand on your medicine ball, do a pushup, then roll the medicine ball to your other hand and repeat.
Victory Raises- Hold your medicine ball behind your head, elbows to the sky. Lift up so your arms straighten, then slowly bring it back down and repeat.
Duck and Dodge- Standing straight, drop your hands to your feet then quickly jump your feet back, landing you in a plank position. Hop your feet back near your hands and jump up to standing position.
Rough Flight- Drop to a lunge, not letting your knee pass over your ankle. Explode into a jump, and switch feet mid air, softly landing into a lunge on the opposite leg you started on.
Rogue Bludger- In sit up position, hold a medicine ball to your chest and crunch up, twisting your torso to the right, go back down and repeat on your left.
Cardio for 10 minutes, choose to jog, jumprope, speed walk, run, elliptical, etc.
Perhaps you didn’t get as airborne as the Quidditch players in Harry Potter, but you’re closer to having a lean body like a Quidditch World Cup Champion. 10 points for your house!
