Fitness Challenges – High Knees
If you’re looking for an alternative to jogging around the park or a half-hour bike ride, this is the challenge for you. High knees will help boost your heart rate, stay flexible, and improve coordination.
Challenge your friends to join you this week. Trust us, they won’t regret it.
Here are some simple steps to high knees:
- Stand with your feet hip-width apart and lift one knee to your chest.
- Switch to the opposite knee and continue the alternations into a running pace.
- Swing your arms at 90-degree angles during knee raises to maintain your balance.
Take your time alternating between knees if you haven’t done this exercise before, so that you achieve the right technique. However, once you become familiar with high knees, you can pick up the pace.
