Workout Wednesday: Full Body Cardio Workout

We are back with a killer full body workout that provides cardio and strength training combined. In order to do this workout you will need hand weights, but if you dont have any, soup cans or full water bottles work well too. Use between 3-10 lb weights based on our fitness level. Do the entire series 3-4 times to really feel the burn.


Exercises:


Lunge swings - Start standing with feet a little wider than hips with apart and hands down at your sides with a weight in each hand. Twist your right foot to the side while rotating your body to the right and dip your back left knee down to the floor while bending your right front leg into a lunge. As you lunge swing your left arm up in front of you and curl at your elbow bringing the weight towards your chest. As you lower the weight back down straighten your legs and twist your body back to the front. Repeat on the left doing a total of 10 reps on each side.


Squat arm curls - Start standing with feet a little wider than hips with apart and out to your sides with a weight in each hand. Bend your knees and lower down into a squat while bending your arms into 90 degree angles with your hands towards the sky. Stay in the squat and bring your arms together in front of your face to touch while keeping them bent in that 90 degree angle. Bring your arms back out to the side and as you bring them back to the starting position straighten out of the squat. Repeat 10 times.


Side skip reaches - Start standing with feet a little wider than hips with apart and hands down at your sides with a weight in each hand. Jump your right foot towards your left and jump your left foot far out to the side while also raising your your left hand up and over your head. You should be leaning slightly to your right. Now jump your left foot towards your right and jump your right foot far out to the side while raising your right hand up and over your head towards the left. You should be leaning slightly to the left. Repeat this 20 times for a total of 10 reps on each side.


Weighted arm high knees - Start with your feet slightly apart and your arms out to the side and curled up at a 45 degree angle with a weight in each hand. Keeping your arms in that position kick each knee up (alternating) as a high and as fast as you can. Repeat 20 times for a total of ten knee raises on each leg.
