Working out doesn't have to be complicated! 3 week beginners workout, I bet you get results!


Do you remember when you were a child and had to take PE in grade school? One of the main exercises we always performed were jumping jacks. Why, because they are simple and give you
a total body workout. The jumping isn't very stressful on the joints and you can do them pretty much everywhere. Not to mention, there is no need for equipment.

So here's a workout you can use to jump start your workout program if you haven't worked out in some time. We will use the Tabata approach which is just another fancy word for interval training.
Let's start with a goal time of 10mins. As you get stronger, you can increase that time to 20mins.

Find some music or a playlist that will keep you hyped up for that time and begin jumping for 20 seconds. I like to use 20 seconds on, 20 seconds off. If this is too difficult, scale back your recovery
to a 30 seconds. The goal is to keep moving during your on time and recover during your breaks so even if you have to stop jumping during your on interval just keep shuffling your feet from left to right. You will be surprised how fast your endurance picks up and how easy it will become for you to complete this workout.

I recommend doing this 3 times a week if you are just starting out.  Make sure to extend fully overhead to touch your fingertips on every rep.
