Happy Friday! This 4-day week just seemed to fly by – not that I’m complaining! Since I’ve gotten into the habit of talking fitness on Friday, I thought I would share another workout out with you. I am a huge fan of routines I can do at home with little to no equipment. This set of 5 moves will work your whole body as well as get your heart rate up with those burpees and squat jumps! Repeat this workout 5 times for a super quick set or 10+ times for a more solid workout.
- Burpees: Start in a standing position. Jump straight up, then drop down into a push up position. Jump feet forward towards your hands. Jump back up into standing position and repeat.
- Up/Downs (ie. Up and Down Plank): Start in a push up position. Lower onto left elbow, then right elbow. Raise back up to starting push up position one arm at a time.
- Squat Jumps: Lower down into a squat position and jump in one explosive motion. Land softly and lower immediately into a squat position.
- Leg Lifts: Lie on your back with your feet in the air, legs straight at a 90 degree angle from your upper body. Lower legs until 6 inches above the floor and quickly lift back up into the air.
