New Move Monday” has been in hiding for a while–it’s time to re-emerge! When Candace was in town a few weeks ago, I put her through one of my typical workouts. We taped one of my favorite active rest/plyo moves so I want to share it with you!

New Move Monday: Medicine Ball Taps (video) |

When I do my weight routine, it is rare that I just walk from exercise to exercise. I like to keep my heart rate up high, and work in an interval in regards to my heart rate. I add plyo/cardio bursts, or active rests, in between each exercise, or each circuit. This is one of my favorite ones that also works on my coordination!

Remember–slow it down to modify. You may just tap right and left until you get the hang of it. Land gently each time!

There is no right or wrong as to how to do these. You can count and do “x” amount of taps, or do them for seconds. I do them until I feel like I can’t breathe anymore. (Nice, right? :))
