To get started you need to warm up first, get your heart and blood pumping. Let’s goooooo

2-minute warm up: Jog in place, or walk up and down your stairs.

1-minute on Burpees- Get in an extended pushup position, arms straight, legs straight, straight line from head to toe. Push through your toes, bend your knees, and jump your feet forward, landing them between your hands. Spring explosively off the floor, straightening your body as you jump vertically in the air, arms raised high. Land with soft knees, then bend at the waist, place your hands on the floor, and jump your feet back into and extended pushups position. Repeat.

Rest For a Minute

1-minute on: Squat Jumps

Stand with feet hip-width apart. Bend at the knees and drop your seat toward the floor, tucking your elbows as you lower. With one explosive movement, push through your heels and jump vertically in the air, extending your arms out to the side. Land softly, and immediately return to the squat position. Repeat.

1-minute on: Marine Crawl

Get down on all fours. Lower yourself onto your elbows and extend your legs behind you so knees are slightly bent, but not touching the floor. Begin to crawl marine-style in your room, shifting your weight from side to side to allow your arms and feet to move.

Rest for a minute

1-minute on: High Knees

One of my favorite exercise, Stand with your feet together. As fast as you can, begin running in place, hiking your knees as high as you can get them (aim to hit your chest).

Rest for a minute

1-minute on: Butt Kickers

Stand with feet together. As fast as you can, begin running in place, kicking your heels back and up behind you (aim to hit your butt with the kick).

Rest for a Minute

1-minute on: Plank

Get into a low plank position( like doing a push up) weight on your forearms and balls of your feet, back straight. Stay like that for a minute, If you’re a beginner you might do less then a minute but try your best to do a minute.

Repeat this set every other day and you should have heads turning when you hit the beach! Good Luck!
