If you have eight minutes you can do this cardio ladder boxing exercise. Punch one drop down to the ground and step it back into a plank position. Punch 2 drop again, punch 3 drop again, and keep going for 8 minutes and see how far you can go with your punches. It is a great anaerobic exercise to get your heart pumping. Try it next time you're at the gym.
