Full Body Workout For Beginners – Exercise #1
Step back with your right foot, bend both knees to lower into a reverse lunge, creating two 90 degree angles with your legs.
Your right knee should tap the floor, keep your chest lifted back flat and your glutes and core engaged.
Push through the heel of your left foot to step forward about two feet and lower into a forward lunge.
Push through the heel of your right foot to return to standing and immediately into the next rep. Do this for 30 reps.
Full Body Workout For Beginners – Exercise #2
Start in a high plank position with your palms flat on the floor. Lower into a forearm plank starting with your left arm, followed by your right.
Come up in the same or reverse order. Perform one frogger by jumping your feet outside your hands.
Keeping your weight in the center of your feet, drop your butt down, then jump your feet back out to a high plank and repeat the plank up.
For an easier variation you can scale down by doing the plank up from your knees and walk your feet in for the frogger instead of jumping.
