Add some heart-pumping cardio to the traditional Plank Pose with our modified Half Burpees, giving your core and metabolism a serious run for its money.
With every rep, you’ll tone those core muscles (think abs, chest and lower back) all while boosting your endurance levels and strengthening your spine for improved posture.
Begin in a Downward Facing Dog (stacking your shoulders in line with your wrists, keeping your hips in line with your knees, tucking your toes, lifting your knees off the floor and taking your hips into the air).
Don’t forget to pace yourself! If you happen to stop during this sequence, you’ll notice it only takes longer to get going again. Instead, pick a pace you can maintain for however many burpees you feel you can do and don't stop. Remember, slow and steady wins the race!
To further challenge yourself in this Plank-to-Forward-Fold sequence, try adding a push up in between. Do this by first dropping your chest down to your mat then pushing yourself back up to Plank Pose and finishing by “jumping” your feet back to your hands.
