This is a workout I threw together one day last week as I was pinched for time and needed something that made me sweat and could be done in as little as 15 minutes. Voila!
These moves target your arms, core, glutes, and chest.
Perform each move for 1:00 and repeat 3-5 times.
2 Way Push Up- begin with arms wide, perform push up, then move arms closer together and perform another push up. Repeat until the minute is over.
Alternate Curtsy Lunge With Kick- Lunge backward with right foot, bringing your knee in line with your left ankle. Come out of lunge and kick your right leg into the air. Repeat with left leg, alternating until 1 minute passes.
Tricep Kickback- Using dumbbells, hinge at the hip and keep your elbows tucked in close and upward. In a controlled motion, extend your arms behind you and bring them back in.
Jack Knife Crunch- Lie on your back with legs straight and arms extended. Bring your arms over your head and bring your knees into your chest at the same time to meet your elbows. Release and repeat.
Tuck Jumps- Just as the name sounds, jump off both feet and bring knees high. Use your arms to gain momentum for each jump.
Bench Dips- Using a stable surface, keep your arms close to your body and extend your legs straight in front of you. Lower yourself from the surface until elbows are bent, and push back up. Keep this slow and controlled…it will burn!
Raised Leg Sit Ups- Using an elevated surface, prop your legs up and lie flat on your back. With hands behind your head (lightly touching but not pushing your head up) exhale as you tighten your core and lift yourself toward your knees. Lower and repeat.
As always, modify these moves as needed (ie: if you can’t do tuck jumps, hop in place or do high knees with one leg at a time).
Remember to spend at least a few minutes before AND after each workout to warm up and stretch, getting your body ready to move, and giving it a chance to cool down afterward.
Have a happy, fit, and fun day!
