It’s about time to pick up the pace a bit, don’t you think? After a week off from videos and several videos of strength-based moves in a row, let’s get our hearts pumping! (Maybe that will distract us from the slightly shaky video? It’s OK Mom ;) )
Today we have four exercises that will give your leg—not to mention cardiac—muscles a workout. These plyometric moves are best with a step, but a stair can be an excellent stand-in for the lunges and you can do most of the squat moves simply on the floor. If you’re without a step, simply focus on the jumping motions and sinking low into the squat. For the straddle move, jump your legs from a standing position to a plie squat and back together if you’re performing this move on the floor.
Do you prefer to strengthen your muscles with stationary weight-based exercises or more functional workouts ?
