Looking for a workout that will raise your heart rate, work your legs, and strengthen your arms? Then take your run of the mill burpees to the next level by adding a donkey kick. Then strengthen those arms with cross punches and burn calories with weighted squat thrusters. This full body workout is just 3 moves, but do them right and they’ll be the only 3 moves you’ll need to feel the burn and rev up your fitness routine!
1- Burpee + Donkey Kick
2-Cross Punch + Donkey Kick
3-Thruster with Weights
Set a timer for five minutes per exercise, then work at high intensity for 20 seconds, with 10 seconds rest between each set. Don’t forget to refuel with a cold Core Power high protein shake at the end your workout, you’ve earned it!
