We have loved working out with you all over the last 6 weeks and hope you will continue to use our favorite routines all year round! For the last part of our series we wanted to focus on toning, sometimes we just want to tone, lengthen and refine so here is our quick and easy workout for toning the body. Remember that workouts are most effective when they are a part of a balanced lifestyle with a healthy diet.
Start standing. Reach your hands up to the sky as you jump up. Upon landing, bend knees/lower butt to bring your hands to the ground. Jump kick the legs back to land in a plank position. Return by jumping your feet forwards to land behind the hands. Then reach the hands up to the sky as you stand to jump in the air. Repeat 15 times.
Get into position by standing with feet hip width apart. Bend knees and lower body down towards floor to place hands on floor. Then step each foot back bringing the body to a plank position. Hold plank for 2 x intervals or 30 sec each.
Start in a squat with arms reaching straight up. Jump up to straighten legs in the air. Upon landing, return to deep squat. Repeat
Start in a plank position. While holding the plank, alternate pulling each knee forward, a la running movement.
DOWN DOG SPLIT TO SINGLE LEG PLANK
