Heads up! Some of these exercises are different and you might feel goofy doing them...but, they're also wildly effective and even a little fun (if we're using the word "fun" liberally), so you're going to want to try this routine.
After all, fitness is a lifelong project, so it's nice to break away from routine staples like jumping jacks and push ups every now and again to shake things up a bit. Try it and you're going to find that your brain appreciates new challenges, and that because of the unfamiliar movement patterns, your muscles will be talking to you in new ways, too. Just be glad that you're likely doing this at home in your living room, and your not on the world wide web doing these weird exercises in the name of keeping things interesting and challenging!
