That’s all. Now, climb up and down as fast as you can. Do as many repetitions as you can. To begin with set a target of 200 repetitions and gradually increase as you become more used to it. Step ups are amazing work outs, five minutes of intense step ups a day would burn huge amount of your body fat.
d) Jumping Jacks: It is very simple. Stand in attention position them jump off the floor with your legs and arms spread. It is simple alright!
