Get Pumped with Piloxing

 
Part Pilates, part boxing and super fun, Piloxing is a new way to get fit!

Here, instructor (and former professional ballerina) Viveca Jensen shares six body-blasting moves. Do ’em three times a week to tighten your core and bump up your confidence. Jog in place for a couple minutes to warm up, and then get pumped!

Jab Cross
Stand with feet shoulder-width apart and bent knees. Make your hands into fists. Guard your face with one arm and tighten your abs, keeping your other arm bent at your side. Twist your torso, hips and knee while you extend the bent elbow out across your body in a slow punching motion.

Return to start and repeat for 30 seconds. Do the same thing on the other side, and aim for three sets on both sides.

Drive the Car
Start with feet shoulder-width apart, toes facing out. Extend your arms in front of you, at shoulder height, with hands in fists. Bend your right side and “steer” your hands in the same direction.

Return to start and repeat on the opposite side. Continue to alternate for 30 seconds. Do three sets total.

Serve the Platter
Stand on your left leg, with your right leg bent and raised at hip height (right leg will be bent at a 90-degree angle). Have your arms bent, with palms up. Straighten arms and straighten right leg out in front of you, continuing to balance on the left.

Return back to start. Do eight reps. Switch sides, and do three sets total.

Plank
Get in a push-up position. Lower to your forearms, keeping your body tight as a board. Hold for 30 seconds. Slowly bend both knees to the floor and straighten back to plank position.

Repeat three to five times, holding for 30 seconds each time.

Upper Cut
Start with feet wider than shoulders, with knees slightly bent. Arms will be tucked by your side, with palms facing up and fists clenched. Punch right arm up, scooping in a circular motion, rotating shoulders slightly.

Quickly go back to start and repeat on the other side. Alternate between arms for 30 seconds. Do three sets.

Knee Lift
Kneel with your left elbow on the ground, directly under left shoulder and your right hand on ground under right shoulder. Keeping your right knee bent, lift right leg up to hip height. Staying controlled, kick leg straight out to the side.

Repeat for one minute and then switch sides.
