1. Flat-out Burpees
Get ready for your heart rate to elevate! We love burpees because they are a great metaphor for life – when you fall down to the ground, you get right back up!
2. Jump Squats
Jumping exercises, also known as plyometrics, are great for fat burning and really activate your core. Not only are you working your big leg muscles, (quadriceps, hamstrings and glutes) but you’re also working your inner and outer thighs (adductors and abductors), calves and challenge your stabilization as well. If you’re not ready for jump squats yet, regular squats are great, too!
3. Skier Abs
This exercise is a variation of the plank (which we love!). You’re targeting your ab muscles from all angles with this move! Plus, you have to stabilize your upper body and use your legs to jump from side to side.
