Head to Toe Workout

Some days, it's impossible to make it to the gym.  I was having several of those days the other week, and needed something to counteract all the Reese's eggs I was eating.

I decided to come up with a quick head to toe workout.  I tried it myself, and then tried it out on my students, and it.works.  Like, big time works.

^(8) Burpees

^Hold the last burpee down in a plank, open up to side plank.  
Hold side plank for 8 counts. (or seconds for non-dance people) :)
Take top arm and cross underneath, then take arm up to starting position. Do this (8) times.

^Drop top arm to this position.  Do (8) tricep dips.

^Open back up to the opposite side plank and repeat 2A and 2B on opposite side.

^Repeat triceps dips (3A and 3B)

^Hop up to a squat position.  Cross hand over to opposite foot while in squat, jump together, repeat opposite side. (8 times)

And then do the whole thing all over again!

So, in review:
*1a, 1b: 8 times
*2a, 2b: 8 times
*3a, 3b: 8 times
*2a, 2b (opposite side): 8 times 
*3a, 3b: 8 times
*4a, 4b: 8 times

Repeat.  And then again.

Have fun!  (muah ha ha) Let me know if you have any questions.
PS.  If you're just wanting a leg workout, you'll love this one!

I need a workout routine and this one looks great. It has been a while since I've worked out. Lucky for me our apartment is on the 3rd floor and the laundry room on the 1st so that gives me a workout at least once a week lol.

This is prefect! I just did all these moves at the gym the other day in class and I know how great they work (my muscles are hating me right now!) Glad we can get out and enjoy a workout outside again, too;)
