Workout of the Week
Low Impact Cardio

Instructions
Find a space that is clear in front, behind, and to each side of you to avoid injury. Perform a warm-up that consists of an activity that gradually increases your heart rate and moves your joints through a moderate to large range of motion such as the one below. Perform each exercise in the warm-up for 45 seconds.

It is encouraged that you modify each exercise to a version that is best for you.

Workout
This workout will utilize energetic, low-impact, high-intensity movements for a quick bodyweight cardio workout. Perform each movement for 40 seconds with a 20 second rest between exercises. Modify intervals and exercises as needed. Repeat each set 2-4 times total. Rest 1-2 minutes between sets 1 and 2.

Equipment needed: No equipment is needed for this workout.
