Today, I have a workout for you straight from New York.
Kate V headed outside and did a quick workout for everyone at EFI.
It’s very cool to see the New York landscape behind her.
Enjoy the workout!

We have 4 different exercises that you are going to do for 30 seconds each, with a 30 second transition in between. Let me show you the moves and then it’s your turn to go rock it out.
#1 – Bodyweight Squats
We are going to start with a bodyweight squat. Begin in an upright standing position with your feet shoulder-width apart. Hinge from your hips and bend your knees to lower your seat into a squat position. Keep your toes behind your knees and your chest up. Raise back up to a standing position, squeezing your glutes at the top position. Do as many bodyweight squats as you can in 30 seconds.
#2 – Plank
Begin in a 4-point position with your hands beneath your shoulders and your knees under your hips. Lower to your forearms and step back with both feet to move into a forearm plank position. Maintain good alignment with your head, shoulders, hips, and legs. Pull your elbows back and squeeze your glutes and abs. Hold this position for 30 seconds.
#3 – Total Body Extensions
Begin in an upright standing position with your feet shoulder-width apart. Hinge from your hips and bend your knees slightly as you extend your arms behind you, then return to a standing position, raising to your toes and lifting your arms overhead in an explosive movement. Do as many total body extensions as you can in 30 seconds.

# – Power Punches
Begin in an upright standing position with your feet shoulder-width apart. Take a step forward with one foot to move into a fighter stance. Squeeze your hands into fists and hold them at chest-height. Punch forward with one hand, retract your arm, and repeat the movement on the opposite side. Continue in a rapid, punching motion for 30 seconds.
Those are the four exercises in this circuit. Go through the circuit twice, working hard to ensure your heart rate is elevated during those thirty second periods.
