JessicaSmithTV: Power Walk

Power Walk is a steady state, low impact cardio walk from Jessica Smith and I loved it. It was definitely not very intense but it was just what I needed for my doubles workout today. I just started Level 3 of Mark Lauren‘s 90 Day Challenge and it is kicking my butt! I needed something less intense but still effective. Power Walk gave me some light, low impact cardio and some body weight conditioning, too. Peanut is with us throughout the entire workout, looking very sleepy on a mat behind Jessica.

Power Walk is 30 minutes; 5:30 minute warm up and 3:30 minute cool down/stretch. You march in place between most of the moves.

  1. Double side steps; add reaching arms overhead
  2. Step side to side, lowering into a squat each time you step to the side
  3. Repeat #1
  4. Alternating knee raises; add alternating front punches
  5. With most of your weight on one leg, tap other leg behind you on a diagonal; add reaching arms overhead; do 4 reps on each side; do 2 on each side; changes to singles, alternating sides
  6. Repeat #2
  7. Repeat #1
  8. Repeat #2
  9. Repeat #1
  10. With most of your weight on one leg, tap one of your heels out and in on a diagonal; do 4 reps on each side; do 2 on each side; changes to singles, alternating sides
  11. March forward and back
  12. Keeping legs wide, do alternating stationary toe taps; taps change to alternating leg lifts behind you; return to taps and add alternating arm circles
  13. Step tap side to side; changes to alternating cross heel digs
  14. Double side steps; changes to double side steps in L step formation
  15. Step side to side w/ shoulder turns; add pushing opposite arm down across body
  16. Repeat #14 but do L formation on other side of body
  17. March in place while pushing one arm forward and back (pressing arm back is a tricep push back); add hinging forward when pressing arm back
  18. Double side steps; open and close one bent arm as you step 2x to the back and 2x to the front
  19. Raise and lower one knee; changes to raising the knee and tapping it out to side while also raising opposite arm overhead when knee raises and pressing other arm down in front of you when tapping leg out to side
  20. Repeat #17-19 on other side of body
