Fun, Heart Pumping Workout Anytime, Anyplace

Now that fall is here, the weather can be unpredictable. Workout inside with this fun and challenging workout! Complete one or two circuits and you will be hooked!

 

Push UpsThe Workout

 

Start your workout with a light 10 minute warm up and then complete all six exercises in order with little rest between moves. Try to complete two circuits for a great cardio workout! Try to build on this workout by completing more reps as you build endurance.

 

 

Exercise #1 – Plank Squat

Begin in a straight-arm plank, with feet together and abs braced in tight. Bend knees and quickly jump legs forward, landing in a deep squat with toes just outside of hands. Immediately jump back out to plank position. Do 20 to 30 reps as quickly as possible.

 

Exercise #2 – Quick Corner Drill

Stand with feet hip width, knees slightly bent, and arms by your sides. Push off your right foot and quickly cross your right leg in front of your left, turning your right hip forward and kicking your left heel up behind body. Quickly step your left foot back down and then your right, returning to start position. Immediately repeat on the opposite side, allowing your arms to swing naturally during the movement. That’s one rep. Do 10 to 20 reps as fast as possible.

 

Exercise #3 – Figure 8 Lunges

Stand with your feet together, with your arms by sides. Step your right leg back into a lunge and sweep your arms down and across your left hip. Quickly step your right foot back next to your left foot, swinging your arms up to the right, then reverse to the other side. That’s one rep. Do 20 to 30 reps as fast as possible.

Make it more challenging by doing power lunges, pushing off both legs and jumping up as your arms and legs switch.

 

Exercise #4 – In and Out Jacks

 

With your feet wide, lower into a deep squat and extend your arms out to the sides of your shoulders, palms facing up. Jump up out of the squat, bringing feet together and clapping your hands overhead. That’s one rep. Do 20 to 30 reps as fast as possible.

 

Exercise #5 – Traveling Climber

Begin in a full plank position. Perform a traditional mountain climber by quickly alternating knees into your chest, and then begin to “run” feet about 45 degrees to the right. Run back to center, and then travel 45 degrees to the left. That’s one rep. Do 10 to 20 reps as fast as possible.

 

Exercise #6 – Jumping Pushups

Begin in a modified pushup position, with hands wider than shoulder width, knees bent, and toes pointed on the floor. Lower into a pushup until chest lightly taps the ground. Quickly “jump” off hands and push hips back to heels reaching arms out. That’s one rep. Do 10 to 20 reps as fast as possible.

 

Once you complete the circuit one time, complete the entire circuit one more time. Follow your workout with a 10 minute cool down before you stretch.

I grew up in a family who has a long history in natural supplements. I've always found such a greater level of health and well being because of the choices I've made to seek natural and organic products. I've taken a lot of my knowledge now to be able to help others make the right decisions to achieve a higher level of wellness. From what I've seen most of where the problems come from is what we put in our bodies, and what we're not. I hope to shed some light on many issues we all face.
