Estelle Matthews: Hi there! I am Estelle Matthews, welcome to my 10 minute exercise program. Now if you feel you need energizing, this 10 minute workout is absolutely great if you really want get going. It has got some high impact workout that always must bring it down to low impact. Let's get started. This is guaranteed to get the heart rate up and energize you for anything else you got to do in the day and as I said only ten minutes. Have a go, alright, you just get started. Let's get very carefully pony trot, this is like a relaxed jog, that's no feet need to leave the ground at any time at this point and getting the shoulders relaxed, they come bounced to it comfortable relaxed bounce and in fact if you are adjust on the spot the other good way to warm up the legs without going into a full job is to take a slushy sideway hip movement because the hip relaxes well and you even feel the waist is warming up if you do. Keep going that path. That's great and it's really relaxed too. Back in to pony trot and just to get the heart right up with the arms but at a very big swings that keep you them slow, its up and over the head and lift, take it a couple more of times, let them stretch through the body and march on the spot, we are going to go through the high impact version in a minute and of course that's when you are jogging and kicking the heels up into the bottom. If you are just starting out on your exercise program, stick to the low impact version. You will still get a good work out, you won't get the stress on the heels and you will find that you can build up too gradually. Looking good just taking the arms, hence we are doing a lots of little segments of exercise and our plan is to try and pull all of them together still though its not a balanced routine you can start exciting the grave as well. Marching on the spot, the knees right up towards the chest, so its low impact again and then the next movement is also need to lot of energy behind these boxes stepping on the right foot left and then pull in towards forwards and back. Once you are comfortable with that little movement can make it a lot bigger, a much more energetic and my arms just kind of going where they want to, nothing set here, that's it and I begin this version is literally on the spot, down, down up both boxes is talking a bit to fill the up, I think that's it and you can widen the dance and you can cooperate him with more arms you want to get the energy going. Good reach, reach and clap, get to the top anyway and then should be able to get up about legs, concentrating the too hard on the arms, lovely okay. If you want to you get a bit more rushing place and taking a tonnage and that's it. March it out, if you are up to it we come to jog, heels into bottom, it should never look tends to jogging, got to relax the upper body and yes. If you are out of breathe, you think you can't cope with this little bit bring it back down again, bring the knees up towards the chest, that's it. Right, the next movement in our little segment today march it, good it's great, very simple ones to get hang of it. It's a sideways movement, lets go this way first, 1, 2, 3 touch and that's the basic movement and you can swing the arms and that's the basic as I said but now you need to pick up the energy, you can even kick one foot up half of the way with the other and you can feel that working in inner thighs as well. It's a cardio workout in getting that squeezed to the inner thighs, so that muscles and you can add anything into those arms, anything that keeps that body working out create your own style, break with the difference. If you choose a favorite track of music, it's much, much more easy to get motivated so get the kids involved, do you think they are great and march it out, okay. One of the little thing is it's a high level little thing and we can put a hope in together, arms up to the side and you step this step okay, you can take it small as this to start with jus
