Skip for Cardio by Laura Scanlon

Benefits of Skipping

✔Skipping gives a full-body workout

✔It is especially great for toning and developing the lower body

✔Simultaneously, it also works on abs and arms

✔ Burns more calories per hour than running

✔ It can be done anywhere

✔ It engages and improves the hip-flexor muscles

✔ Awesome cardio vascular workout

Skipping is for all levels of fitness. Although for beginners I recommend learning the technique first (YouTube have lots of tutorials) and building up some cardio vascular endurance.

Here is an example of a skipping workout 

1. 1 Minutes Singles

2. 30 Seconds Right Leg

3. 30 Seconds Left leg

4. 1 Minute High Knees

5. 1 Minute Doubles (Advanced)

REST

Repeat X 4 Rounds 

20 Minutes Total 

 

Enjoy, Laura x

Workout Of The Day by Laura Scanlon

Hi Everyone,

Its Christmas next week and we all know that means lots of food and drink so with that idea in mind exercise will be vital over the silly season. So here is a full body HIIT workout that can be done at the gym, in the garden or even in the house. Always warm up the body before, check out my YouTube channel for warm up routines but a light jog getting the heart rate up with some stretches will be sufficient. 

5 Rounds with little rest between sets of:

 

* High Knees Fast X 20

* Air Squat X 10

* Mountain Climbers Fast X 20

* Push Ups X 10

* High Knees X 10

REPEAT X 4-5 Rounds depending on fitness level. Always cool down after and stretch.

Full Body HIIT Workout - Working legs, bum, core, arms, cardiovascular.

Enjoy :)
