It’s a METCON kind of day today, Killer Bs, and that means we’re getting a full body burn and tone workout without jumping, squatting, floor work or equipment! This KNEE-FRIENDLY routine is gentle on your joints, but have no fear, there’s still plenty of sweat. 😅
Here are the FAST FACTS: ALL levels | ALL standing, NO jumping, NO equipment, NO squats | BURN 175 – 225 calories | MODERATE day demonstrated | INCLUDES warm up + cool down
We’re alternating fast-paced LOW IMPACT cardio with slow and controlled BODYWEIGHT strength work for a total body workout that’s lots of FUN!
On-screen, I’m demonstrating a MODERATE effort, but you could easily turn this into a PUSH workout if you’d like.
