Let’s get those hearts racing !
KBPT Workout Six – Level One – Cardio Interval Training
Exercise One (Top) – Steps backs with overhead reach. Start standing straight with your feet facing directly forward with a narrow gap inbetween. Step one leg back raising your arms in the air as you do. Alternate sides and keep your knees soft the whole time – do not lock.
Exercise Two (Bottom Left) – Squats – Have your feet hip width apart and squat down as if you are sitting on an imaginary chair! Feel the weight in your heels and look down to check your knees are not going over your toes. Then stand straight – do not lock through the knees. Keep repeating.
Exercise Three (Bottom Right) – Jogging on the spot. Make sure you are moving the arms – the fast the arms move the faster your legs move! Land softly on the floor so you aren’t putting pressure through your joints.
Timings – 45 seconds on and 15 secs to rest. Do three rounds of each exercise.
Progression – Work up to doing these exercises for a minute.
