Work your core while toning your leg muscles by doing High Knees!
This is an excellent cardio workout that will get you sweating in minutes. It’s a great exercise to add to any high-intensity interval training (HIIT) routine. High Knees are a lot like jogging in place, but it adds more resistance to your movement. Getting your knees up while running in place works your legs, glutes and core muscles. Doing it for 30 seconds is enough to let you feel the burn. Don’t be surprised if you need to take a break to catch your breath.
To learn how to do this workout, just follow these steps!
How to Do High Knees
- Stand with your arms bent in front of you similar to a jogging position. Keep your feet as far apart as your shoulders.
- Start jogging in place. You should lift one knee up while your other leg is straight as you alternate this move. Take note: your knee should bend up as high as you can when you lift it. Try to move your feet up and down as quickly as possible.
- Keep repeating this exercise within 10 to 15 seconds or for as long as you can.
