45:15 Challenge

I also started a 45:15 challenge with some of my Zumba peeps and family members.  Here is how it works.  I will try to post a video soon for any of you who may not know what I mean by the names of these exercises.  The challenge is to do 10 minutes every day!  There is always time for just 10 minutes, right?  It is an interval set of 10 different exercises.  You are to do each exercise for 45 seconds and then rest for 15 seconds, move to the next exercise until all 10 are completed.  The best part about this is that it is super short, no equipment, gym or trainer needed.  Literally there are no excuses!  Is it too hard?  Start with 30 seconds of exercise and 30 seconds of rest.

The exercises:

  1. Jumping Jacks (regular)
  2. Burpees (feet together squat to touch hands to ground, jump feet out to a plank, back in and then stand up)
  3. Butt kickers (run in place bringing your heel to your butt)
  4. Speed skaters (jump side to side touching the floor in front of you)
  5. Jump Rope (in place, no rope required)
  6. Squat Jump (squat in place and then jump, 1 dynamic movement)
  7. Shuffle jumps (shuffle in a squat position, step together step, 3x to right and then jump shot, then to the left)
  8. Plank jacks (hold a plank position on your elbows and jack your feet in and out making a V)
  9. High Knees (run in place lifting knees up as high as you can)
  10. Mountain Climbers (with your arms on the floor and your body in an elevated plank position, alternate your knees to your chest like you are running)
I know these descriptions are vague but you can google most of these exercises for a quick description. Also i will try to get a video tutorial on here ASAP!  Any of you up for the challenge?  It is only 10 minutes but I guarantee you will be dripping sweat when you are done!

Good luck!
