Blast Calories in 12 Minutes
Instead of just hoofing it in the park, try mixing up your routine with this total-body workout from Darren Taylor, co-owner of Boot Camp Fitness in Brooklyn.
|0:00-2:00||Walk briskly, taking long strides and swinging your arms in an exaggerated fashion.|
|2:00-3:00||Stop at a bench (or a roomy spot) and stretch your legs, arms, and back.|
|3:00-5:00||Do 20 jumping jacks, then jog for 20 seconds, bringing knees as high as you can. Repeat sequence 3 times.|
|5:00-6:00||Do 15 push-ups (modified or full).|
|6:00-7:00||Do triceps dips off a bench or step (as many as you can).|
|7:00-8:00||Lunge forward with right foot, hold for a few seconds, and return to start. Do 10 lunges, alternating sides.|
|8:00-9:00||Do 20 seconds of each: running in place, mountain climbers (in push-up position, alternate bringing left and right knee up toward chest), running in place again.|
|9:00-10:00||Squat 15 times, then run in place for 20 seconds.|
|10:00-11:00||Do 20 lunges (alternating legs each time).|
|11:00-12:00||Finish with 20 crunches.|
