Uppercut – Professional Boxing Credential are Not Required
Boxing is a great cardio exercise. To do the famous boxing uppercut, a punch which has knocked a foe or two, stand with your legs a bit apart and with one leg, right or left, a tad ahead of the other leg, then throw the punch with the fist that is on the side of the body with the back foot. When you throw the punch start your fist at about hip level, palm up, and then snap it up towards the ceiling to about the same height as your head. Continue throwing this punch for ½ a minute and then switch to the other side. Complete 10 sets of 30 seconds on each side for a total of 10 minutes.
Lunge Jump – It’s Time for Some Air
Lunges are a blast to do, it is a bonafide fact. Begin by standing straight up, feet planted next to each other. Place the right foot forward with that knee at a 90 degree angle, thigh horizontal. From there launch yourself straight up and then when you’re in the air change the position of your legs where you land in the lunge position with your left foot forward. Keep doing this routine over and over for a total of 10 repetitions.
Jumping Jack Planks – These Just Sound Cool So Do Them
Planks in and of themselves are an amazing exercise. When they are included in an exercise regimen and done consistently for several weeks the results a person will see are amazing. Begin this exercise in the standard plank move with your shoulders over your wrists and your body in a linear position and your feet placed together. From there do jumping jacks with just your legs, out and then back together. Complete 10 to 15 repetitions.
