IT DO T HIS CIRCU
WHY: Raises your heart rate in no time. HOW: With your eyes on the horizon and shoulders relaxed, jump lightly, flicking your wrists to bring the rope under your feet twice before landing. Do 21 reps. If too hard, do 42 single skips or 14 combos (1 double-under and 2 singles). WHY: Works your legs, core and glutes, but gives you a breather between the double-unders and burpees. HOW: Lie on the floor with your feet hip-width apart, heels close to your hips, and chin tucked. Push into your feet and squeeze your butt to drive your hips off the ground. Hold for 2 seconds, then roll back down, vertebrae by vertebrae. This is 1 rep. Do 15 reps. oes your morning begin only once some caffeine has hit your bloodstream?

HOW: Crouch down and jump your feet back to a high plank, do a push-up (dropping to your knees if necessary), then jump your feet back to your hands and jump up to clap your hands overhead. This is 1 rep. Do 9 reps. For an easier version, step your feet out to the high plank, step back in and stand to clap your hands.
