High impact does not mean higher intensity. Low impact workouts can also be very high intensity. It’s all about the amount of effort and attitude that you bring to that workout. And this Low Impact Burn 1 workout is the first in a series of high intensity/low impact workouts that will challenge your muscles and your mind.
This Low Impact Burn format will challenge you, make you sweat, and leave you feeling energized and strong, all using just your bodyweight.
In order to get more out of a low impact workout, make sure to use good range of motion. Chris will have you lunging, squatting, doing pushups, getting your arms up overhead, and motivating you to give your best effort! And the good news is that low impact will be more joint friendly for those of us who need less jumping for the hips, knees and ankles.
Low Impact Burn 1 is no joke. You will do a series of 20 exercises in a row. This is an interval workout with a work-to-rest ratio of 50 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of rest. Those 10 seconds will be just enough time for you to take a breath and get ready for the next exercise. With no repeating, this 30-minute workout goes by quickly.
Chris will also coach you on good form. As you know, good form equals good results! It is important to keep your mind in the game and work on your body awareness. Even though this class is low impact, there still will be modifications offered for some of the exercises.
Get ready to lunge, squat, push-up, and do all sorts of fun combinations using your entire body and every muscle group.
