How to High Knee Sprint

Exercise Families: Cardio

Equipment: Bodyweight

Trainer: Ashley Steele


  1. Stand with your feet slightly apart with shoulders flexed and arms straight out in front of the body.

  2. Drive your left knee up toward your left hand, keeping your toes pointed up toward your shin, and explosively extend your leg back toward the ground.

  3. Rapidly repeat the movement with your right leg and continue the static run for the specified amount of time.

  4. High knees are a great way to elevate your heart rate and actively stretch at the same time. As you drive your knee toward the sky, aim at trying to increase your range of motion each repetition.

  5. You should feel this exercise working your hips and quads, hamstrings, glutes, and lower leg.
