I am on vacation this week! I’m ready for some relaxation and quality time with my family. However, this does not mean that I will be taking a week off of my workouts! This week’s challenge is great because it doesn’t take much time, and it’s easy to add to your existing routine – perfect for vacation (and those of you that are missing my classes this week)! It’s a super-charged cardio circuit, and if you do it first thing in the morning, it’s sure to wake you and your metabolism up! If you are not sure how to do one of the exercises, you can click on it to see a video.
Do everything in this list in a row 25 times with only a 10 second break in between:
Jog in place (30 seconds to warm up)
High knees (right, left=one)
Mountain Climbers (right, left=one)
Burpees (with a jump at the end)
Jump Rope (slowing down)
Jog in place (slowly for 30 seconds to cool down)
Keep moving slowly (walk around) until your heart rate comes all the way back down to normal.
(You can repeat this circuit as many times as you want – I suggest three times through, but just getting through it once is enough! Do not include the cool down until you have completed it the number of times through you determine.)
This challenge does need to be completed all at once everyday, but should only take around 5-15 minutes. This is a great way to keep yourself moving all week. It’s a quick little blast of hard core calorie burning that will rev up your metabolism! We can all do this every day…Ready, Set, GO!
