DAY EIGHT: One New Exercise a Day

Running on the Spot

A simple, yet effective exercise for raising your heart rate, getting your blood pumping, and getting oxygen to your brain. Running on the spot is something you can incorporate into your daily routine to keep your energy up, or you can do some light running on the spot early in the morning to get your body moving before you do your stretches. 

Be sure to keep your core tight as this can be a good core strengthening exercise as well. And you can always rotate between focusing on getting your knees up and kicking your heels to your butt.
