Before you start moving around too much, you’ll want to
stretch. Sit on the ground with your legs making a “V.” Bend forward, reaching
your arms down your legs and get as close to touching your toes as possible.
Count to fifteen slowly, then sit back up. Repeat two more times.
Stand up and keep your legs in a slight “V” shape. Shift
your weight onto your left leg, bending at a ninety-degree angle and
straightening your right leg. While you’re doing this, lift your arms above
your head. Count to ten then stand back up, repeating with your right leg. Do
Twisted Jumping Jacks
Grab two light hand weights or two canned veggies and start
doing jumping jacks. Be sure to keep your arms as straight as possible. Do
twenty jumping jacks, rest, and repeat.
This is just what it sounds like: go into a squat, jump up,
go back into a squat. Do fifteen, rest, and repeat.
Head over to your stairs and run up and down them three times. Don’t have
stairs? No problem! Just run in place for about two minutes.
Once again, stand with your legs apart in a small “V.” Slowly bend down and
reach for your toes. While bending, count to ten. When you reach ten, you
should be at or near your toes. Hold for ten seconds, then slowly curl back up,
counting to ten. You should be in a fully standing position when you hit ten.
