Burpee: Cardio is defined as any type of exercise that gets your heart rate up and keeps it up for a prolonged period of time. Your respiratory system will start working harder as you begin to breathe faster and more deeply.
Equipment Required: None
- Stand tall with feet hip-width apart and arms at your sides.
- Begin the exercise by bending your knees and lowering your hips down while simultaneously placing your hands on the ground and kicking your feet behind you as you drop to the ground.
- Next, with your body, barely touching the ground in the down position of a push-up, arch your back up so that your arms become straight.
- Finally, “snap” your feet forward as you push yourself off the ground and stand up tall. This completes one rep.
