We all have those days where we’re feeling sluggish. Whether it’s after a wild weekend or a long work week, the thought of doing any type of cardio may seem impossible. But this 14-minute cardio dance routine injects your workout with extra energy and will leave you feeling better than when you started.

The barre-inspired cardio workout includes a series of high-impact moves, including jumping jacks, football runs, standing crunches, and mountain climbers. If you want to modify for low impact, simply swap the jumps for steps or mini squats, and go extra hard with the upper-body movements to keep your heart rate up. Expect to alternate between standing and floor exercises that strengthen the upper body, lower body, and core. The moves will follow the beat of the music, but feel free to blast your favorite songs to get pumped up. If you’re having trouble keeping up at first, don’t stress. You’ll get the hang of it with practice, and when in doubt, just keep moving!
