This month I will challenge myself with some cardio. I will be doing THREE 30 sec. rounds of high knees* as fast as I can with 15 sec breaks between rounds, during which I will be stepping side to side. I will be doing this routine twice a week and report my score. My goal is to increase the number each time or at least each week. I hope my knee will be fully healed by tomorrow and I can begin…..
Try it, it’s an amazing cardio and a great warm up exercise. It improves running form, lower body speed, power, and flexibility. It works your core, your thighs and your lower back. Using high knee exercises gives you a greater range of motion for your knees and your hips. For me it’s important because it should improve the quality and speed of kicking 🙂
*High knees – It’s a running motion with exaggerated knee lifts. If you are a beginner, start out slow with your exercising and then add more repetitions for greater results. Good luck!
