Hey, I’m excited to share this with you.

I have a video with Jenna, who has been the fitness model in hundreds of my videos during the last six months. Now, she will start doing her own YouTube videos.

Check out her first YouTube video below. Let her know if you have any questions or ideas for future videos that she can do.

Enjoy!

I wanted to show you the best microbreaks to kickstart your day.

These microbreaks will increase your energy and alertness in only 90 seconds. You can do these exercises for about 20 seconds each.

#1 – Squat

Stand with your feet at hip-width apart and go through the squat movement. Sit down, then stand up. You can either hold your arms out in front of you or leave them down at your sides. Repeat the movement. It doesn’t matter what pace you do as you can still reap all the benefits.

If you have more time, then do these in one set of 5 to 10 repetitions. The intensity of this exercise is light.


#2 – Calf Raises

Do this exercise using a chair, a desk or whatever works for you. Stand at the back of the chair and place your hands against it for balance. Straighten out your legs, then lift your heels and stand up on your toes.

If you want to increase the difficulty of this exercise, lift your arms up when you stand on your toes. Do whatever pace works for you and hold onto a chair or stable surface for balance.
