Couple Exercising On Beach                                                                                            High knee exercises work your calves,hamstrings,quads,abdominal muscles and shins.Here more than one muscle is being worked at the same time,thus you will burn more calories than if you are just doing an isolation exercise such as hamstring curls or crunches.Before this high knee jump a minimum of 5 minutes warm up to ready your muscles and that can run or march in place,along with performing a few dynamic stretches such as toe touches,side bends and a few foot grabs to stretch the quads.
After warm up stand up straight,place your feet about hip-width apart,place your hands palms down facing the floor,hovering just above your belly button.Drive your right knee up to meet your right hand quickly,bring the same leg back to the ground immediately bring the left knee coming up to meet your left hand.When you are alternating knees you want to do it with a hopping motion,staying on the balls of your feet the entire time and make sure that you are engaging your abdominal muscles as each knee comes up to meet the hands
If you do not quite have your endurance built up yet,have knee issues or a beginner,you can still target the same muscles with this variation of the high knees exercise.
You can begin in the same stance as the high knees exercise with your palms at belly button height and facing down towards the floor.Bring your right knee up to meet your right palm,then lower the same leg down to the floor and repeat with your left knee.Leave the hopping part out and keep alternating knees while engaging your abdominal muscles as you bring the knees up each time.
Another exercise is High Knee Oblique Twist where standing with your feet hip width apart and make a fist with both hands,then bend the elbows to where your hands are about level with your chin.Drive the right knee up,twist your torso to the right and bring the knee to meet your left elbow,immediately repeat with the left knee meeting your right elbow and do this in a hopping motion while staying on the balls of your feet.Keep your abdominal muscles engaged as your knees come up,squeeze the the side oblique muscles as you twist.
Try to keep moving a minimum of 20 minutes at a time,
