Squat Jumps

Squat jumps can add intensity to any workout. One of my favorite saying is; ‘The more you move – the more calories you will burn – the better you will feel!’ This is also true when it comes to strength training. I wanted to feature a cardio move that is easy to incorporate into any fitness routine and Squat Jumps do just that. No equipment necessary. Do 10 to 20 squat jumps at the beginning, in the middle and at the end of your next workout or to really increase your calorie burn, you can even do a set  in between each exercise. Love squat jumps because you can always make them more challenging by doing the jumps on a step or a Bosu. Be sure to watch for video for the all the details about squat jumps just CLICK HERE!

5 Minute Mini Cardio Circuit: Use a Step

“Mini Circuits” are one of my favorite ways to burns lots of calories quickly! My Mini Circuits are about 5 minutes long and depending on how hard you work – you can burn approximately 50 to 80 calories in just those 5 minutes. They are a great alternative when you don’t have time for a full workout, simply find a couple of minutes 3 to 5 times during your day and complete the mini circuit! Increase the intensity of your next strength training workout by completing this circuit at the beginning and the end of your workout – you’ll be amazed at the added intensity and calorie burn! Do the following exercises in order and with little or no break in between, for more information Click on each exercises for a video demonstration and correct exercise form and technique!
