Star jumps are a plyometric move that I have been using in my trainings for a while now. Despite burning quadriceps, screaming glutes, and a racing heartbeat, this move is so much fun. I often have requests for it at the end of a workout just to ensure we go out on a high note!
This is a great move to incorporate into you HIIT workouts as it will provide you with both cardio and strength training. It is a tough one so be sure to modify if you need to by simply taking out the jump-making sure your feet do not leave the ground. You will still get low in your prep, and will rise up shooting and extending your arms out. Your will feel this in every way-even without the jump!
Try it! Start with 20-30 seconds doing as many as you can with good form!
You are stronger than you think you are!
