How to Do Quick Skips

This Move Tightens Your Abs and Booty While Burning Crazy Calories

Similar to the "knees and toes" exercise, this quick skip move will tone your lower abs, tighten your core, and work your legs (especially the calves!) and booty.

Here's a quick tutorial on this quick skip motion — it's so similar to high knees, but you're springing off your standing foot to add an extra challenge.

  • Begin by standing with your feet hip-width apart.
  • Make a fist with both hands and bend the elbows to where your hands are about level with your chin.
  • Drive the right knee up, twist your torso to the right, and bring the knee to meet your left elbow.
  • Immediately repeat with the left knee meeting your right elbow, and do this in a hopping motion while staying on the balls of your feet.
  • Keep your abdominal muscles engaged as your knees come up, squeeze the side oblique muscles as you twist.
