Welcome to day 2 guys! How are we feeling after our first day? Not too sore we hope! Ok so today’s workout will be a cardio based workout to give those muscles a break. The same time format and rounds as day 1. Each of this week’s workouts will be the very same length of time. 15 minutes of pure heaven! These are today’s exercises:

Jumping Jacks

Stand with feet together, knees slightly bent, and arms to sides. Jump while raising arms and separating legs to sides. Land on forefoot with legs apart and arms overhead. Jump again, lower arms and returning legs to midline. Land on forefoot with arms and legs in original position and repeat.

High Knees

Stand with your feet pointed straight ahead and placed shoulder-width apart. Contract your core, jump up and bring your knee to hip height. Land softly and repeat with opposite knee. Allow arms to swing freely.

Ski Runs

Create a wide stance between feet, one foot forward with slight bend in knee and arm extended to shoulder height. Jump up and bring opposite leg and arm forward, landing into position. Repeat.

Mountain Climbers

Place hands on floor, slightly wider than shoulder width. On forefeet, position one leg forward bent under body and extend other leg back. While holding upper body in place, alternate leg positions, landing on both forefeet simultaneously.

Power Knees

Create a wide stance between feet, one foot forward with slight bend in knee. Extend arms out in front at waist height. Squeeze your core and bring knee up to meet hands. Return to start position and continue with the same leg for 15 seconds before swapping legs.
