Here are the details of each exercise to ensure you’re doing everything right and not putting your body at any risk.
You probably performed this star jump several times in physical education class in school. Put your feet together and keep standing with your arms at your sides. Jump and land with your feet slightly apart from shoulder width. Raise your arms from your sides and above your head at the same time that you move your legs. Back up to your starting position, then.
The most important things to remember are to land gently with your knees bent and maintain a straight back. Doing this can prevent undue pressure on specific body parts, which can cause pain from repetitive motion.
Put your feet shoulder-width apart while standing, then squat by bending your knees. Make sure your weight is behind you and maintain a straight posture. Your rear end and chest should expand, and you should look straight ahead.
Continue to go down until your bum is just above your knees, during which point you should drive through your heels and jump as high as possible. When you land, bend your knees and go straight into another squat.
Jog on the spot, raising your knees as high as you can. Each time, try to reach them above your waist, at least. Even though this is a cardio-focused exercise, it can still be difficult on your back if you end up leaning over. As you perform the exercise, maintain a straight back and a front-facing posture.
Put your feet together as you stand. Then, while keeping your eyes pointed in the same direction, take a deep step with your right foot out to the side. Then, while keeping your left foot, bend that knee and shift your entire body to the right. As a result, the left leg should straighten out.
Return to your starting position with0020a controlled movement. After that, repeat with your left leg and continue to alternate between them as you complete the workout. Again, the idea is to maintain a good posture with your head facing ahead and keep your back straight.
Repeat the squat from the jump squats we outlined earlier for this workout. However, push yourself back into your starting posture rather than jumping into the air with force. Remember that good posture is essential for squats—keep your back straight and your chest out!
If you consistently perform this two-minute exercise, it will be sufficient to compensate for the gym session you skipped. In addition, you will burn calories by making your heart beat quickly and building lower body and core muscles.
