We spend so much of our time sitting—at home, at work, in the car—and as a result, our joints and muscles are not running through their full range of motion. This quick, explosive workout will wake up your muscles and kickstart blood flow.
Each exercise is geared toward shifting your body back into alignment. When the body is in alignment, oxygen flows freely to the muscles and creates more energy. This way you can burn calories and skip the afternoon coffee. Give it a try!

Exercise #1: In a standing position, reach your arms straight out and run in place, bringing your knees high, for thirty seconds.
Exercise #2: Drop your arms and run in place so that your heels kick your butt for thirty seconds.
Exercise #3: Squat low with your feet pointed straight forward. Then spring up as if to jump, driving your arms straight up, but do not let your feet leave the ground. Repeat these ‘fake jumps’ for thirty seconds.
