Today’s workout is a Total Body exercise routine. The full workout will take 40-minutes and incorporates strength exercises with cardio movements to improve your overall fitness as well as your cardiovascular endurance and efficiency. This workout is from Week 2 of my Total Body Sculpt + 1-Mile Run Workout series. You can find the additional workouts here: https://www.benderfitness.com/2020/06/fit-and-fun-summer-run-body-sculpt-workout-challenge-week-2.html
You will find the workout video and full breakdown list of exercises below. I incorporate two plyometric exercises, but this can easily be adjusted to be a low impact/non-jumping workout routine.
In order to make this routine low impact you will need to adjust two exercises: Froggers and Long Jump. Both exercises can be done with stepping instead of jumping. Remember, there is always a way to modify a workout to suit your needs.
Small acts of kindness can go a long way and have a significant impact on someone else’s day. Plus, it will make you feel amazing too.
I firmly believe that health is not only a physical journey, but also a mental, emotional and spiritual journey as well. When we find balance in each of these areas is when we feel our best.
Wishing you a beautiful day, and I hope you enjoy today’s workout.
