Sara Haley, master trainer and creative consultant for Reebok, developed a fun plan just for GL. Repeat the entire series two to six times.
1. Beach bunny hops with arm circles
“Hop from one foot to the other, as if you were on the beach,
standing in sand that’s too hot,” Sara says. As you’re hopping, make
giant circles with your arms to warm up your body. Repeat 10 to 15
2. Watermelon press
Hold a 5- to 10-pound weight between your hands, with your feet
shoulder-distance apart. Squat down then stand up, extending your arms
and lifting your weight to the ceiling. Repeat 12 times.
3. Short shorts side splits
Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart with your right leg
slightly in front of the left. Lunge down by bending both knees (be sure
not to let your knee go past your toes). Return to start and repeat 16
4. Tank top tricep pulses
Start with your feet shoulder-width apart while holding a 5- to
10-pound weight behind your back with both hands. “Hinge over from the
hips, working to maintain a flat back by squeezing your shoulder blades
together,” she tells us. Slowly pulse the weight up and down 20 times.
5. Bikini abs
Start on your back with your legs up in the air and your knees
bent. Cradle your hands behind your head. Lift your shoulders up and
pull your knees into your chest. Lower your upper body and straighten
your legs on an angle. “Try your best to keep your feet together,” Sara
reminds us. Repeat 16 times.
6. So-fly flutter kicks
Lie down on your stomach with your arms in front of you and your
legs straight. Tighten your core. Lift your arms and legs off the floor.
Pump your arms and flutter your legs simultaneously (when your left leg
is up, your right arm should be up). Repeat 10 times.
