High Knees Overview

High knees is a great cardio exercise that can be performed anywhere and doesn't require any equipment. It is a great exercise for improving lower body power and coordination. It also challenges your core stability, as you must engage your abs to keep your balance while performing the movement.  Plus, it's a great way to get your heart rate up and get those legs moving!

You can perform this exercise anywhere, whether you are at home, at vacation or in a park. Make sure to keep your feet light for this one.

How to Do

  1. Start in a standing position with your feet hip-width apart.
  2. Keeping your core engaged, bring your right knee up to hip height as you exhale.
  3. Inhale as you lower your right leg back to the starting position.
  4. Repeat with your left leg.
  5. Continue alternating legs for the desired number of repetitions.

Exercise Tips

  1. Keep your posture tall throughout the movement.
  2. Do not let your knees collapse inward as you raise them.
  3. Make sure to swing your arms forward and back in sync with your legs. This will help you maintain balance and improve the efficiency of the movement.
