Low Impact Exercises
Begin in a full plank position with feet hip-width apart, neck in line with your spine and shoulders over your wrists. Quickly kick right leg to the left, as left hand reaches toward right foot, pivoting on left foot. Return to start (rotate back to full plank) and repeat on the other side. Continue alternating sides.
3. No-jump burpee
Stand tall with feet hip-width apart, arms extended overhead. Push hips back and bend knees to lower into a squat. Place hands on the floor and quickly walk feet back into a full plank position, one at a time. Lower into a pushup if you can. Press up, walk feet back into squat, and stand up, reaching arms overhead.
4. Plank extension
5. Lunge (once through on each side)
Begin in a lunge with left leg forward, arms bent by sides, back knee pointing towards the floor and both knees at a 90 degree angle. Pushing up through your feet, extend legs and rise up onto balls of feet as arms extend overhead, fingertips reaching to ceiling. Return to start and repeat. Repeat on opposite side.
6. No-jump tuck
Sit on the edge of a sturdy chair or box, leaning back slightly. Pull abs in tight, and bend knees about 90-degrees. Point toes lightly on the floor, and bend elbows and hands in front of shoulders. Lift knees up and lightly tap thighs with hands, sitting upright as you draw legs in. Return to start and repeat.
Stand with feet wider than your hips. Bend right knee, putting your weight in your right heel & extend your left leg out, driving your left arm forward and right arm back. Staying low in squat position, shift weight to left leg, lowering into a left side lunge, with your weight in your left heel, right leg extended & right arm forward. Repeat side to side.
