DO IT ANYWHERE WORKOUT: Six Moves to Fit!
Celeb trainer Torri Shack (torrishack.com) developed this total body toning routine that can be done anywhere. Start with a five-minute warm-up, like running around the park, doing jumping jacks and toe-touches. “If you can find some benches, do tricep dips,” she adds.
To cool down after, Torri recommends light stretching, jogging in place and doing a few quick punches, alternating arms. Do this workout three times a week!
Start in push-up position. Bring the right knee toward chest, keeping the left leg solid. Plant right foot on the ground. Quickly jump and switch legs, so the right leg is behind you and your left foot is on the ground. Do three sets of 20 reps.
Start in lunge position, with your left leg in front and right leg in back. Jump up and switch legs, throwing arms up in the air while jumping for added toughness. You’ll land with the right leg in front and left in back. Do three sets of 20 reps.
Start in push-up position, with arms slightly wider than shoulders. Tighten abs and extend your right arm forward. Slightly lift your left leg behind you. Lower to start and repeat on the other side. Do three sets of 20.
Start in a push-up position. Reach the right arm straight out in front of you. Bend your left leg toward your left elbow and plant it on the floor just outside your hip. Return back to start and repeat on the opposite side. “This requires a lot of flexibility, so it’s a really great move for core stabilization because your core is engaged the entire exercise,” Torri tells us. Work up to doing three sets of 20.
PUSH-UP WITH SIDE PLANK
Start in a push-up position. Lower yourself, staying straight as a board, until you are an inch above the ground. As you push yourself up, rotate to the right into a side plank. Your entire body will face one wall. Reach your left arm up to the ceiling and slowly lower back to start. Repeat on the other side. Aim for 20 reps.
Lie on your back with your legs straight out in front and arms out to the side, making a “T” position. Place palms on the ground. Bend your knees and lift your legs until your thighs are above your hips. Press palms into the floor and lower legs to the left. Go as far as possible, while keeping shoulders stuck to the floor. Use your abs to slowly raise your legs back to start. Repeat on the other side. Do three sets of 20 reps.
