Disclaimer: Do not start a new exercise routine without first consulting your physician!
It sure is cold out there, but this workout will definitely warm you up. Plus, doing this workout with a friend or loved one will make in pass in no time. So gear up and get going.
Start with a quick 2 minute warm-up of: 30 seconds jumping jacks, 30 seconds high knees, 30 seconds butt kicks, 30 seconds jumping jacks.
Then the series starts. While one person is running on the treadmill the other is completing the exercise. You either run for a minute or complete the exercise for a minute and then switch. This means you should be running every other minute.
You can also walk instead of run, depending on your level or use a different form of cardio like a bike, elliptical, etc.
