Your #MotivationMonday Workout is In!

  • Leap Frog Jumps: With wide legs (about 3 feet apart) Jump up, reaching your hands in the air, then when you come back down into a deep squat, touch your fingertips to the ground between your legs.  These can be done in place or on the move across a room!
  • Speed Skaters: Get into a runner’s position: knees bent, left leg behind you and in the air, weight on the right foot. Launch yourself as far as you can to the left, landing on your left foot and reaching the right foot behind you and to the side (like a “speed skater, duh!)
  • Split Squat Jumps: Start in a deep lunge position-both knees bent at 90-degree angle- jump up into the air, switching feet and returning into a lunge.
  • Jumping Jack-Toe Touches: Perform a standard jumping jack, then reach down and touch your toes.  Repeat.
  • Knee Pull-Ins: Pop yourself into a plank position with your palms on the ground, straight back, fingertips underneath the shoulders.  Bring your knees into your chest, then kick them back.  Repeat.  Keep that back straight and those hips in place people;)
  • Burpees: Bring your arms down to the floor and jump your legs back into a plank position. Bring your feet in between your hands, then push up off of the ground and jump up in the air.  Repeat.
  • Quick Push-Up Arm Raises: perform a push up, then raise your right arm, straight out in front of you, then your left, and repeat.
  • Squat Jumps: perform a normal squat by starting with feet hip-distance apart, then reaching back with your rear as if sitting in a chair.  Keep the knees behind the toes, chest up and back straight, stand up. Launch yourself up and come down.  Repeat.
  • Mountain Climbers: Get into plank position on the floor, palms down. Alternating legs, pull your knees towards your chest as quickly as possible.
  • Plank Jacks: Get yourself into a plank position on the palms of your hand, straight back, and fingertips underneath the shoulders.  Perform jumping jacks with your legs my scissoring out and back in- limit your hip movement and refrain from piking that butt up in the air!
