What : Jogging in a stationary position​

Why : It’s simple, accessible, gets the heart rate up and is a great way to warm up for more intense exercise

Requirements : A good pair of shoes and a sturdy floor

Precautions: It’s high impact, which may tax the joints, and it can be boring. Because there’s no forward motion, it isn’t as intense as jogging outside​

Variations : Press the arms overhead, high knees, butt kicks, wide knees​.

Precautions: It’s really, really hard

Variations : Stepping the feet back instead of jumping, jump up at the end, add a pushup or use equipment: Medicine ball, BOSU,kettlebell, or Gliding Discs.
