Five moves. That’s all it takes to fire up your fat burning and build lean metabolism-charging muscle. This basic routine hits all of your major muscle groups. Do these moves one after another with no rest in between. Repeat the circuit a total of two times, resting two minutes between each circuit. Do this workout four to six times a week.
Abs, Thighs and Butt
Kneel on the floor with your hands shoulder-width apart. Brace your abs and lift an alternate arm and leg. Point the arm out straight in front and extend the opposite leg to the rear. Hold at the top of the move for 5 seconds before returning to the start position. 5-6 reps each side or 1 minute.
Lie on your back. Lift your legs and bend your knees 90 degrees so your shins are parallel to the floor. Lift arms straight above you. Lower your right arm toward the floor behind you (elbow straight), as you lower your right foot to just above the floor. Return to start. Lower your left arm toward the floor behind you and your left foot to just above the floor. Return to start and continue alternating, so you do 10 reps on each side or 1 minute
Sit with your knees bent backwards and then slowly go down towards the ground stopping yourself with your flat palms and then pushing yourself up, all the while making sure, your abs are tightly crunched and your legs are perfectly still. You can do 15-20 repetitions or 40 sec. – 1 minute.
Bend your elbows 90 degrees and rest your weight on your forearms. Your elbows should be directly beneath your shoulders, and your body should form a straight line from your head to your feet. Hold the position for as long as you can. Your goal should be to hold it for two minutes.
Stand with your feet shoulder width apart. Sit back, and down as if you are lowering yourself into a chair. You can extend your arms out in front of you to help you keep your balance. Keep your chest upright – don’t bend forward. Push your hips backwards, pressing your weight back into your heels as you lower yourself. Make sure your knees stay behind your toes. Lower yourself as far as you can – try to get your butt parallel to your knees. NEVER go lower than this. If you can’t get that low, just go as low as you can manage. Keeping your weight in your heels, push your body back to the starting position. Your goal should be to two minutes.
