Jumpstart 10-10-10 Circuit:

Cardio Circuit

Do 5 circuits of the following 4 exercises followed by 10 minutes of power walking.

High-Knee March: With feet hip-width apart, begin marching in place. Gradually raise your knees as high as you can comfortably with good form. To make it harder, try running with high knees instead of marching.

Bodyweight Squats: With feet spread shoulder-width apart, squat down as if sitting into a chair. Stop when your thighs are about parallel with the floor. Then press yourself up. Continue, quickly, for 15 seconds.

Jumping Jacks: Jump your feet out wide while raising your hands in big arm swings, then jump back and drop your arms to your sides. You remember. Keep it up for 15 seconds.

Reverse Lunges: From a standing position with feet under your hips, take a large step backward with your left foot. Bend both knees, allowing your left knee to dip down just inches off the ground. Push explosively up to the starting position and repeat the lunge, this time with your right foot backward. Keep alternating legs in this fashion for 15 seconds.

Power Walk: Walk briskly for 10 minutes outside if possible. Swing your arms for greater calorie burn.
