WHY: Raises your heart rate while also work­ing your glutes and legs. HOW: Stand­ing in front of the chair with your chest up and belly braced, step your right foot onto the seat, then the left. Step your right foot back to the floor, fol­lowed by your left. This is 1 rep. Do 5-15 reps on each side. To make the move harder, raise your knee to your chest as you step up, and drive your op­po­site arm to the sky. WHY: Keeps the car­dio el­e­ment of the work­out go­ing while strength­en­ing your up­per body. HOW: Kneel­ing in front of the chair, an­gle your body for­wards and place your hands on ei­ther side of the seat. Keep your torso long and belly braced as you lower your chest to­wards the seat, as low as you can, then push back up to the start­ing po­si­tion. This is 1 rep. Do 5-15 reps. To make the move harder, come up onto your toes.
