Short 'n' sweet 15-minute workout


One of the best ways to get yourself goin’ in the morning before school starts is a short ‘n’ sweet workout. By the end of it, you’ll be wide awake. That’s right—no more snoozin’ in first period.

 

Straddle Stretch

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.

 

Reach-for-the-stars Lunge

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 this twice.

 

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.

 

Squat Jumps

This is just what it sounds like: go into a squat, jump up, go back into a squat. Do fifteen, rest, and repeat.

 

Quick Jog
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.

 

Cool-down Stretch
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. Repeat.
