You may be feeling busy and have a lot on your plate this time of year. That is why we are brining you a quick workout that you can get in any time! Whether you complete 1, 2, or 5 rounds, this quick high intensity workout will keep you feeling good and staying active when you are on the go.
•20 jumping jacks
•Jog in place and circle your arms forward and back for 30 seconds
Complete 10 reps of each exercise. Go through all exercises once, and then depending on how much time you have, repeat the circuit 1 to 4 more times.
Squat to push-up
Perform a normal squat, and then walk your hands out so that you are at the top of a push-up. Perform a push-up, walk your hands back in to standing, squat, and repeat.
Single leg burpees per side
Just like a regular burpee, only keep one leg lifted! This will really challenge and help build core strength and stability. If you perform one or two but are losing good form or find you are falling, then please do a regular burpee.

Plank knee taps per side
Holding a plank position, tap your right knee down, and then lift it back up. Then tap your left knee down and back up. Continue alternating knee taps.
Side plank dip and thread the needle per side
Holding a side plank (you can be on your hand or forearm), dip your hips down towards the ground, and then lift back up. Once you lift back up, perform a side crunch/twisting motion, brining your top arm under you, reaching behind you. Return to starting position and repeat.
Cross-Climbers per side
Similar to a mountain climber, only from a plank position, drive opposite knee to opposite elbow. Try to move quickly here as if running, but you can slow it down as needed.
Make sure you take time to cool down and stretch, or use any of these yoga or foam rolling exercises here.
Have a great weekend!
