#MotivationMonday Cardio Intervals Time!

  • Double-Footed Lateral Jumps: with your feet together, jump as far as you can laterally, then jump back and repeat.
  • Side Lunge-Squat Hops: Perform a side lunge with your right leg (bring it out to your side, bending it in a 90-degree angle and keeping your left leg straight,) then lift up your right leg and bring it back to center, but without putting it down, perform a jump pushing off of your left foot.  Rest your right foot down and repeat on your left side.  Repeat all together, alternating sides.
  • Forward-Backward Squat Jumps: Perform a squat, reaching back as deep as you can, launch yourself forward landing in a squat.  Repeat, jumping backwards.
  • Wood Choppers: Start with your hands straight above your head and feet together (like you are a tall pole.)  Jump your legs out into a squat, bringing your arms down to graze the floor between your legs.  Return back to your pole position.  Repeat.  Add a medicine ball for more difficulty.
  • Tuck Jumps: Perform a side lunge with your right leg (bring it out to your side, bending it in a 90-degree angle and keeping your left leg straight,) then lift up your right leg and bring it back to center, but without putting it down, perform a jump pushing off of your left foot.  Rest your right foot down and repeat on your left side.  Repeat all together, alternating sides.
