Exercise Guide / How To

Burpee: Stand with feet shoulder width apart. Lower your body into a squat position, and place your hands on the floor in front of you. Kick your feet back so you are in high plank position while lowering your body to the ground. Push through the arms and jump feet wide to start position, stand, and jump up. 

Air squat: Standing feet shoulder width apart, send your hips back and bend the knees like you’re sitting in a chair. Keep your core engaged and chest lifted, then drive through the heels to activate your glutes and stand tall.

Push up: Start in high plank position, shoulders over wrists. Lower body to the ground, elbows at 45 degrees. Press through the hands with core engaged so you move as one unit back to starting position.

Tuck jump: Start with feet together. Bend the knees slightly, and jump in the air while tucking the legs into the chest. Land softly with bent knees.

V-up: Start laying on the ground with arms above head, and feet a few inches above the ground. Use the core to lift the torso and legs, making a "V" shape. *MODIFIED option, bend the knees into a seated tuck position instead of the full V.
