WorkOut #1 – Warm Up!

I’m doing this as a favour for the lovely Elle, but hey, if someone else finds it helpful…awesome!

You will need: a fitball, light hand weights (or some fairly heavy cans or waterbottles), a skipping rope if possible, a towel and some water…to drink!

Exercise 1

Skipping  x 400 reps – that’s right count each skip until you reach 400 – try not to stop unless you absolutely have to – and if you must set yourself a goal (I’ll reach 100 before I stop etc)

Alternative:

If you don’t have a skipping rope then do the same thing with jumping jacks.

2 plank ups [set yourself up in a plank, knees or toes, elbows on the floor and then slowly raise yourself up on to your hands – alternate which hand you push up on first]
