Before diving into a rigorous workout, it’s important to warm up your body to prevent injury and get your blood flowing. Two great warm-up exercises to start off with are side bends and high knee twists.
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and hands on your hips. Slowly bend your upper body to the left side, feeling a stretch along the right side of your waist. Hold for a few seconds, then return to the starting position. Repeat on the right side. Side bends help to warm up your obliques and improve flexibility in your torso.
High knee twist
Stand with your feet hip-width apart. Lift your left knee up as high as you can while rotating your torso to the right, trying to touch your left knee with your right elbow. Return to the starting position and repeat on the other side. This exercise engages your core, stretches your glutes, and gets your heart rate up.
Now that you’re all warmed up, it’s time to get into the main part of your workout. The following exercises are a combination of cardio and strength training, targeting different muscle groups to give you a full-body workout.
Start by standing with your feet together and your knees slightly bent. Jump to the right, landing on your right foot with your left foot lifted slightly off the ground. Immediately jump to the left, landing on your left foot with your right foot lifted. Continue hopping side to side, moving as quickly as you can without sacrificing form. Ski hops are a great way to work your quads, hamstrings, and glutes while also improving your agility and balance.
Side leg raises
Lie down on your right side with your legs extended straight. Lift your left leg up as high as you can, keeping it straight. Slowly lower it back down to the starting position. Repeat for a desired number of repetitions, then switch sides. Side leg raises target your outer thighs, hips, and glutes, helping to strengthen and tone those muscles.
Stand with your feet together and arms by your side. Jump up, spreading your feet wide apart and simultaneously raising your arms up overhead. Jump back to the starting position. Repeat for a desired number of repetitions. Jumping jacks are a classic exercise that gets your heart rate up and engages multiple muscle groups, including your calves, quads, and deltoids.
Get into a high plank position with your hands directly under your shoulders and your body in a straight line. Bring your right knee in towards your chest, then quickly switch and bring your left knee in towards your chest. Continue alternating for a desired number of repetitions. Mountain climbers are a fantastic full-body exercise that engages your core, shoulders, and legs while also providing a cardiovascular challenge.
Running in place
Stand with your feet hip-width apart and start jogging in place, lifting your knees high and pumping your arms. Maintain a brisk pace for the duration of the exercise. Running in place is a simple but effective cardio exercise that helps to improve your cardiovascular endurance and burn calories.
Start in a standing position with your feet shoulder-width apart. Bend your knees to squat down, then place your hands on the floor in front of you. Jump your feet back into a high plank position, then immediately jump them back towards your hands and stand up explosively, reaching your arms overhead. Repeat for a desired number of repetitions. Burpees are a challenging exercise that work your entire body, targeting your chest, legs, and core.
Stand with your feet together and arms by your sides. Jump up explosively, spreading your arms and legs out to form a star shape in the air. Land softly with your feet together and arms by your sides. Repeat for a desired number of repetitions. Star jumps are a great plyometric exercise that works your entire body, particularly your quads, glutes, and shoulders.
Sit on the floor with your knees bent and feet flat on the ground. Lean back slightly while keeping your back straight, then lift your feet off the ground, balancing on your tailbone. Hold your hands together in front of your chest and twist your torso to the right, then to the left, tapping the ground on each side. Repeat for a desired number of repetitions. Russian twists target your obliques, improving your rotational strength and stability.
Lie flat on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the ground. Place your hands behind your head, elbows out to the sides. Lift your upper body off the ground and twist to the right, bringing your left elbow towards your right knee. Return to the starting position and repeat on the other side. Cross crunches engage your core muscles, particularly your rectus abdominis and obliques.
Start in a high plank position with your hands directly under your shoulders. Lift your right hand off the ground and reach it underneath your body, tapping your left hip. Return to the starting position and repeat on the other side. Reach throughs engage your core and shoulders, helping to strengthen your abs and improve shoulder stability.
Congratulations! You have completed a fantastic workout that targeted various muscle groups and provided a great cardiovascular challenge. Remember, consistency is key when it comes to achieving your fitness goals, so try to incorporate these exercises into your routine regularly.
