3 Minute Fat-Burning Cardio
This is perfect for people who are ready for mild intensity. Your breathing will get up as your body goes through a large distance with burpees. You’ll be tested with your breathing on the tall planks as you recover from the burpees. This is a great fat burning and core toning exercise!
3 rounds of:
•30-sec no push-up burpees
•30-sec tall plank
No Push-up Burpees: With smooth and controlled movement go from a tall pushup to standing. Keep the feet close together and step each leg forward. Come to a tall and stable position when standing. Practice moving without taking a break and hold a smile on your face!
Tall Plank: A progression from elbows planks. Lift up the hips and get your body straight and in a slightly hollow position. Lock your legs straight by pulling your knee caps towards your hips (up). Squeeze your glutes and brace your core to create stability. You don’t want to be sagging your hips. Imagine your hands are on plates and you want to spin the outwards. This helps to activate your lats and stabilize your shoulder. Be sure to breathe calmly when holding the position.
