Happy Monday to you! I wanted to share one of my favorite ways to spike the heart rate for a little added cardio in my weight training.
I call these Lunge Knee Drives/Hops. I am showing you 3 variations from a beginner end to a more advanced.
1-All you do is take a step back like you are doing a reverse lunge and as you stand drive your knee up ( think abs ) with you.
2- Same thing. Reverse Lunge but when you stand this time add in a jump.
3- Same thing. But you are going to touch the ground on the reverse lunge. Crazy how a little reach for the ground can add that much more of a challenge.
Try this out in between one of your lifting sets or after a circuit. Set a timer for 30 seconds OR do a set number of reps; 10-15. Don't forget the other leg.
