Need help with some of the debate exercises?
Read on for descriptions and helpful resources to get you started.
Burpees: Moves that engage major muscle groups throughout your body, burpees are done by dropping into a crouching position, pushing the legs back into a push-up position, returning to the crouch and finally, standing back up. Watch a video on how to do a burpee.
Jumping Jacks: Cardio interval moves that work the entire body by jumping out with your arms extended and jumping back to a standing position. See jumping jacks in action here.
Planks: These basic moves test your body's overall strength. Hold your body for a determined amount of time in a push-up position with either your arms extended or with your entire forearm completely on the ground. To rest, put your knees on the ground. Learn how to do a perfect plank.
Pop Squats: Start low with your feet slightly wider apart than a normal squat. Jump into the air bringing your feet together then land back down into your squat. See how to turn a regular squat into a pop squat.
Push-ups: These classic, yet functional moves improve upper body strength. From a resting position on your stomach, push your body upward by extending your arms. See a push-up demonstrated here.
Squats: Defined as functional exercises, squats mimic the movement of sitting and rising from a chair to tone the lower body. Watch how to do a squat correctly here.
Wall Sits: Start by standing about two feet away from a wall with your back against the wall. Slide your back down the wall until your hips and knees bend at a 90-degree angle. Keep your shoulders, upper back and the back of your head against the wall. Both feet should be flat on the ground with the weight evenly distributed. See how to do a wall sit.
