Compliments of Jénel Stevens of ProwessPT:

This week we have two exercises: Thrusters (squat to press) and shin grabs. This couples a whole body movement with an ab exercise – trifecta mix – cardio (bc of the time aspect), strength exercise incorporating upper and lower body, and a core exercise. It hurts so good!

20 seconds Thrusters (Squat to Press), 10 second break.
20 seconds Shin Grabs, 10 second break.
20 seconds Thrusters (Squat to Press), 10 second break.
20 seconds Shin Grabs, 10 second break.
Repeat for a total of 4 minutes.

Give it a try and let us know what you think!

20 seconds jumping jacks, 10 second break.
20 seconds push ups, 10 second break.
20 seconds high knees, 10 second break.
20 seconds mountain climbers, 10 second break.
Repeat for a total of 4 minutes.

Tips:

Jumping Jacks – Try to touch your finger tips together at the top and move as quickly as you can while your toes make contact with the ground while landing softly.

Push Ups – Can be done on your knees, but make sure your rear end comes down to the ground with you. Can also be done on a chair or bench if you are not ready for the ground.

High Knees - Be sure your knees come above your hips, use your abs to raise your knees and maintain control.

Mountain Climbers – Keep your shoulders over your wrists and your back flat with your neck neutral. Use your abs to raise your knees up, similar to high knees.
