Trainer Justin Wecker will teach us how to do squat jumps, plank knee ups and lunge jumps in today's Exercise Minute. All you will need for these exercises is yourself.
180 Squat Jumps
The first exercise will be 180 squat jumps. First, you will go down into the squat position and then jump up and spin 180-degrees until you're facing the opposite direction. Once you're facing the other direction, squat down and then jump back around into your original position and repeat. Make sure you are alternating your turns throughout this workout so that you don't get dizzy. Do this exercise for 30 seconds followed by a 30-second break.
Plank Knee Ups
The second exercise will be plank knee ups. Start off in the plank position with your feet and hands placed apart. Then, bring your knees to your chest by jumping forward with your feet while your hands stay in place. Then, bring your feet back to the original plank position and repeat this for 30 seconds and then rest for 30 seconds. Try to get your heels to reach down to the ground if you can to strengthen your flexibility.
The last exercise in this circuit will be lunge jumps. For this exercise, you will be doing alternative lunges while jumping into each lunge. Start off by lunging forward with your right leg and then jump and alternate into a left leg lunge. Continue to alternate between legs for 30 seconds, and then take a 30-second break. Repeat this entire circuit at least once more or as many times as you would like.
Have a great workout!
