Simple Exercises You Can Add to Your DIY Boot Camp at Home
Regular and intense workouts supervised by certified fitness professionals are among the perks of joining boot camps. But spending time not to mention the money for a fitness boot camp that may take several days is something that not many women can easily make. Career and personal responsibilities often get in the way of such plans. If you want to get fit by doing your own version of boot camp at home, you can add some of these exercises to your routines:
Burpees are adrenalin-pumping that seem easy enough to look at until you get down and do it yourself. Do this exercise by squatting down. Place your hands on the floor and get ready to jump while simultaneously putting your feet back and getting into the plank position. From there, quickly jump back to return to the squat position then jump back to a standing position while putting your arms straight above your head.
2. High Knees
Stand straight and get ready to run in place. Make sure to bring your knees as high as you can. You can place both your hands palms down in front of you and try to alternately reach them with your knees. Be careful not to overdo this exercise as it may be jarring to your knees and feet.
3. Jump Rope
You can do this exercise with or without a jumping rope. Start from a standing position with your knees slightly bent as if preparing to jump. Start skipping or jumping just high enough for your real or imaginary rope to pass through between your feet and the ground. Keep doing within the time you allot for each exercise in your routine.
4. Mountain Climbers
Get down on the floor in a push-up position. Put one of your feet near one of your hands. Make sure to align your hands with your shoulders and hips. Jump while simultaneously pulling the leg near one of our hands back and extend it then putting the other leg close to your other hand.
Start by getting into a push-up position. Your hands should be shoulder width as you assume the position. Make sure that your body is straight when you do the drill. Drop down to the ground then push off from the ground to go back to your original position. Do as many as you can while maintaining proper form within the allotted time.
