60 Seconds of Jumping Jacks Start things off by getting your heart pumping and muscles warmed up with jumping jacks. Jumping jacks provide a full-body workout on their own. You move all of your large muscle groups doing jumping jacks. While you’re doing these throughout this workout, remember to breathe deeply, engage your core to target your abdominal muscles.



10 Push-Ups
Drop and give me 10!! Push-ups are one of the oldest and most basic exercises you can do for one simple reason. They work! And, you can do them anywhere. This exercise fires up all the muscles in your upper body, building optimal strength in the forearms, shoulders and chest. Not only that, these engage muscles in the lower body as well; core, legs, calves, back and glutes all tighten when you’re doing push-ups.



30 Seconds of Jumping Jacks
Get your cardio going again with another set of jumping jacks, just 30 seconds here.

10 Lunges, Each Leg
Stand with feet together, then bring one foot forward so your knee is above your ankle. Do these at a slower pace to strengthen all the muscles this exercise works. Lunges actively engage the quadriceps, glutes, hamstrings, calves and core. Do a set of 10 for each leg. For an added challenge, add some dumbbell work while you lunge to help build upper body strength. Do shoulder presses or bicep curls as you step into your lunge.

Yep, back to those jacks! Get your heart pumping and calories burning with 30 more seconds.

30 Second Plank
Start by getting into a push-up position, bend your elbows and rest your weight onto your forearms. Your body should be a straight line from shoulders to ankles. Engage your core by pulling your belly button into your spine. Hold this position for 30 seconds.

10 Leg Lifts, Each Leg

These are great for lean legs and glute toning. Start on all fours. Engage your core and lift your straight leg until you feel your glute tighten. Bring leg down to release, then lift – do this for 10 sets on each leg. This full-body exercise tones the entire body from shoulders to calves. Strong glues, toned core and back help support your lower back, so this is a good move for those who need a little back support.

Last set! Give it your all.

20 Ab Crunches
Let’s get the core burning with a few crunches. Sit on the ground with your legs straight out in front of you. Put your hands by your side for support. Lean back, tighten your core (pull your belly button into your spine), lift your legs and bring your knees into your chest. Keep your core tight during every move. Bring legs back down and as straight as you can. Repeat. Do a set of 20 crunches.
