The Wake-up Work Out

Yeah I don't either...Yuk!

I hear more often than not, “I don’t have time to work out.” So, here is my wake-up and work out routine.  This work out will take you about 15 minutes to complete.  I think you can spare 15 minutes right?

Move 1 - 10 Jumping Jacks with squat
Move 2 - 5 Modified Push Ups
Move 3 - 30 seconds of “Jumping Rope” with wide arms circles going clockwise. Then 30 seconds of jumping rope with wide arms going counter clockwise.
Move 4 - 10 seconds of The Plank
Move 5 - 10 Jumping Jacks
Move 6 - 10 Baby Crunches

Jumping Jacks with squat: When legs are out bring your bottom down towards the floor.  Your knees should not go over your feet.

Plank: Body on the ground with arms underneith your shoulders and along your rib cage.  Hold your body tight using your arms, core.  Toes should be curled and used for balance.

Jumping rope with wide arms
: Jump up and down like you would jumping rope.  Your arms strenched out to the side making large circles clockwise.  After 30 seconds move arms going counter clockwise.

Modified push-ups - Like in a plank position but arms will fully extrended but do not lock elbows and knees should be on the ground.

Baby Crunches:
Lie on your back. Knees bent and feet planted on the floor.  Chin to chest and slightly raise while keeping a small curve in your spine.  This is more of a micro move.  Do not fully come up to your knees.  Engage your core.
