Total-body tone-up for dreamin' gymnasts

 
 
Wish you could conquer the uneven parallel bars or the balance beam? You might not be ready to tackle the Olympics—yet!—but our gymnastics-inspired workout will help you build and tone your entire bod. Start and end this workout with some stretching to test your flexibility, like a V-reach and L-seat. To up the fun factor, grab your besties and sign up for a tumbling class. You’ll be acing floor exercise in no time.

 

Leg Lifts

Lay flat on your back with your legs straight up in the air, forming a 90-degree angle with your body. Place you hands just under your bottom and using your abs, slightly raise your bottom up, lifting your legs straight up. Hold for 5 seconds then lower bottom back down, while keeping legs up straight. Do three sets of 10 reps.

 

Pike

Laying on your back with your arms and legs straight up, slightly lift your bottom off the ground. Quickly fold your body in half, moving your arms straight up and touching your toes. Then, return to original position and repeat. Do three sets of 8 reps.

 

Rolls

Begin in plank position on your elbows and tips of toes. Keeping your body elevated, while staying level, hold position for 30 seconds. Without lowering your body, roll on to right forearm and stack your left foot on top of your right, hold for 30 seconds. Repeat on left side, one rep. Do three sets of 8 reps.

 

Body Pumps

Using a platform that is knee height (like a coffee table or a step) and wont slide, face away and place palms of hands on edge. Stretch your legs straight out in front of your body, resting your weight on your heels. Slowly push up using your arms and keeping the rest of your body in a straight line, then lower back down. Don’t let your booty touch the ground! Do three sets of 10.

 

Jump Up!

Begin by standing with feet shoulder width apart and arms at your sides. Bend down into a squat then while going back up, jump into the air. Do three sets of 10 reps.
