Summer 6-Step Tone-Up
Summer may be approaching at what feels like lightning speed, but there is still plenty of time to tone up before the long sultry days become the regular. My last workout used a foam roller to build up strength in the core and throughout the body. This week, we are going to make those results pop by increasing heart rate and body temp to tone up and slim down!
Ready, set, GO! It’s all about a lot of speed, a little rest, and then repeat.
Quantity: 20-second sprints with 10-second rests for 3 minutes total
2. High Knees
A Begin with your palms facing down in front of you and your right knee touching your right hand. B Jump up and down, alternating knees to the same sided hand.
Quantity: 3 rounds of 30 seconds on, 5 seconds of rest
3. Push Ups
A A classic that never fails! Start in a high plank, be sure your back isn’t curved or concave, and place hands under shoulders. B Use your chest muscles to lower your body to the ground and back up. Feel free to make this a little easier by completing them on your knees.
Quantity: 3 sets of 10
4. Handstand Arch
Increase flexibility and strength with this one! Get into a handstand against a wall, and then walk your hands a little bit back. Next, arch your back until your booty hits the wall. The more you practice, the further from the wall and the deeper of an arch you’ll get.
Quantity: Hold the handstand 1 time for as long as you can stand!
5. Booty Bridge
A Rest one leg on a ledge, the other extended straight up, foot arched. B Squeeze your Glutes as you lift your hips until your body is in a straight-line neck to knee.
Quantity: 3 sets of 10 per side
6. Wall Sit
Finish strong by firing the Quads! Rest your back against a wall with knees bent at 90 degrees like you’re sitting in a chair.
Quantity: 3 rounds holding for 30 seconds, resting for 10 seconds
