Promoting Women Health and Fitness
From boot camp classes to circuit training, star jumps are showing up in many hardcore workouts. The trend of doing back-to-basics calisthenics reflects the philosophy of multitasking. Many vigorous calisthenics, including Star Jumps, do more than burn calories. They function as cardiovascular, strengthening and stress-relieving exercises. Make Start Jumps part of a daily or weekly fitness plan and modify them to meet your fitness goals.
Pulse Squats with Leisa Online Personal Trainer
Perform a basic squat, but instead of returning to standing, stay in the lowest part of your squat with your thighs parallel to the ground and move up and down, keeping the movement small (a few inches up or down).
Begin standing in a wide stance, toes pointing on an angle away from your body and hold your arms up in front of you. Keep your back straight at all times. Bend your knees, lowering your body, being sure not to allow your knees to go over your toes. Push back upwards through your quads & hamstring muscles and really SQUEEZE your butt!! Then immediately lower again, & up & lower & up to complete one full rep. (this can be done with a double pulse)!!
You can perform this exercise with a kettlebell or even a medicine ball if you have one and don’t own a dumbbell. Either works…a weight plate will do just fine too…if you don't have any of those, grab a reusable grocery bag & toss some ingreds into it, use full water bottles or even cans of food.
In the demonstration above, I am lifting one foot at a time which actually works really well through the inner thigh to add a variation to this exercise. This also helps improve your balance.
I would love to hear from you
