Energy Booster Morning Workout
Here’s a breakdown of the 6-minute morning workout:
Squat Pulses – 20 Seconds
Wall Sits – 40 Seconds
Rest 20 Seconds
Triceps Dips – 20 Seconds
Windmills – 60 Seconds
Rest 20 Seconds
Knee Diamond Push Ups – 30 Seconds
Plank Shoulder Taps – 30 Seconds
Rest 20 Seconds
Burpee Stand Ups – 30 Seconds
Hand Walkouts with A Jump – 30 Seconds
Squat pulses are quite challenging even though they don’t have much movement. Remember to keep your back straight while doing this exercise.
Make sure your knees don’t extend past your toes as you hold the squat position.
Wall sits mainly target your quads. Note that you’ll start feeling the burn after a few seconds but don’t quit until you get to 40 seconds.
Keep your thighs parallel to the floor and knees bent at 90 degrees. Avoid placing your hands on the thighs as it makes the exercise easier.
This exercise is great for building your arm muscles. Since triceps are bigger than biceps, doing dips regularly will make your arms stronger, firmer, and bigger.
Avoid lowering your butt too much as it may increase the risk of injury.
Windmills are a great full body exercise that stretches your hamstrings. Remember to rise after each rep instead of going from side to side.
Knee Diamond Push Ups
This exercise also targets your triceps. Keep your hands directly below your lower chest and then bend your elbows backwards.
Lower your body until your chest almost touches the floor and then rise until your arms are fully extended.
Plank Shoulder Taps
Plank shoulder taps engage your abs, arms, and shoulder muscles. Squeeze your ab and butt muscles to prevent your hips from sinking.
Try to keep the hip movement minimal as you tap the shoulders. Keeping your feet a few inches apart may help stabilize your hips.
Burpee Stand Ups
This burpee variation doesn’t put as much pressure on the joints as regular burpees. Yet, it burns lots of calories and increases strength rapidly.
Gently place your hands on the floor to avoid straining your wrist and shoulder joint.
Hand Walkouts with a Jump
You probably know that hand walkouts target your arms, shoulders, and core. Adding a jump to this exercise will activate your leg muscles and challenge your cardiovascular endurance.
