    How To Do This 30-Minute Full Body Workout

    Perform each exercise below for 12 repetitions, then immediately go into a high knee run in place for 60 seconds.

    Need low impact? Instead of the high knee run, do a fast high knee march, pumping your arms to make up for the heart rate.

    Once you finish your 60-second high knee, take 15 seconds to catch your breath and move on to the next move followed by another 60-second high knee run.

    Keep this going throughout the workout, and repeat the entire sequence two times, making for a 30-minute workout.

    Try to get this workout in 2-3 times a week and you’ll be feeling great in no time!
