Weekend Workout – No Equipment Necessary
August 8, 2014
No equipment necessary other than your body and a wall for this one! Go one minute for each move, add a minute of jumping jacks or jump rope at the end, then repeat it all 3x. For extra, do a fourth round, and as a 20 minute run, jog or walk/run to it. Have an awesome weekend!
MOVE 1: Side-Kick Plie
To perform this glute and hip toner, stand with your feet two to three feet apart, toes turned out, then lower into a squat, elbows bent and fists in front of your chest (a). Stand up and lift your right leg off the floor. Focus on your glutes, then drop your left shoulder and kick your right leg out to the side (b). Reverse the movement to return to the squat position. That’s one rep. Do 10, then repeat with your left leg.
MOVE 2: Ab Roll-Up
Sit on a mat with your legs extended in front of you. Roll your back onto the mat and lift your legs over your hips, supporting yourself with your arms(a). Use momentum to roll quickly back to the starting position, but bend your knees and place your feet flat on the mat. Plant your feet and jump up, reaching your arms over your head (b). Land softly and bend your knees to lower back down to start. That’s one rep. Do 10.
MOVE 3: L Stand
Place your heels against the bottom of a wall, bend forward, and position your hands shoulder-width apart on the floor. Walk your feet up the wall until your legs are parallel to the floor and your body forms a 90-degree angle (a); this works your upper back and shoulders. Raise your right leg to activate your core (b). Reverse to return to start. That’s one rep. Do 10.
MOVE 4: Standing Mountain Climber
Add a cardio component by jogging in place for 10 counts, bringing your knees up to hip level (a). Drop to the floor, get into a plank position, and quickly alternate bringing your knees to your chest 10 times (b). That’s one rep. Jump up to return to start; repeat three times.
