Everyone grew up playing frogger, and since it’s inception their has been countless knockoffs. Most have surpassed the original, but the OG will always have our heart.

While playing that beloved game, who didn’t  imagine doing it in live action mode (real life).

No we are not suggesting you stop what you are doing and run through traffic, but going through a bodyweight progression on all fours is a great way to build full body strength, along with increasing mobility in your ankles and wrists.

These 5 Bodyweight Exercises take the Frog Hop exercise and progresses it through 5 stages. Here are the 5 bodyweight exercises that will finally make you a Human Frogger.

Bodyweight Exercise #1: Frog Press

Frog_Press

The Frog Press is a unique body weight exercise that strengthens the upper body. Most people have not heard of this exercise but it works just as well as the normal push-up. Your hands will be in the normal push-up position and your feet will be closer to your hands then the normal push-up. They should be, depending on your height, about 3 to 4 feet. Your knees will be bent at 90°.  Lower your body down until your nose touches the ground, and then push back up.

Bodyweight Exercise #2: Frog Hop

The Frog Hop is a great exercise to get the heart rate up and burn calories! Frog Hops help you strengthen your power muscles, the glutes, and your upper body so you can build explosive pressing strength and jump higher. Your body position will be the same as the Frog Press, but you will explosively launch your entire body off the ground when you push yourself back up.

Bodyweight Exercise #3: Frog Clap

The last and most advanced variation of playing live action frogger is the Frog Toe Touch.  Your body position will be the same as every other Frog Hop Progression but after you explosively launch your entire body off the ground you will clap each hand to each toe before landing. This is extremely hard, and even harder if you can get into a fluid rhythm.
