Okay, we’re ready to start. Let’s go!

1 – Start With Jogging

2 – Jumping Jacks

Next, do 25 jumping jacks. Remember when landing, bend your knees slightly to reduce the impact on knee joints.

3 – Crunches

Now it’s time for 15 crunches to really tone our tummies!

  • Place your hands behind your head with elbows pointing outwards.
  • Support your neck with your hands.
  • Keep your neck in a straight line with your spine.
  • Flex your waist to raise the upper torso from the mat.
  • Lower yourself until the back of your shoulders touches the mat.

4 – Hip Bridges

You should be sweating now, think of all that fat that is being burned!

Our next exercise is going to be doing 10 hip bridges.

  • Lie on your back.
  • With your hands at a 90-degree angle to the floor, lift your body off the floor to form a straight line, a sort of a bridge, from the shoulders to the knee.
  • The position should resemble a table… your hands and legs as the legs of the table and your upper body to your knees as the surface.
  • Hold this position for two seconds. Squeeze your gluteus (butt muscles) and then lower yourself.

We’re working our butt, lower back and hamstrings with this movement!

5 – Step Up’s

Now we’re going to do 1 minute of step up’s.

Step up’s are great for getting a firm and toned butt by working your hamstrings, quads and glutes.

  • Lie on your back with your hands on your sides.
  • Keep your knees bent.

  • Hold this position for a second, and then lower your knees.

We’re hitting our lower abdominals with this exercise.

It’s time to do 1 minute of mountain climbers which are great for working our triceps, deltoids, gluteus, quads, hamstrings and calves!

  • Run in that position, supporting your upper body with the palms of your hands.
  • Keep your back straight.

This is one we all know.

Hammer out 15 push-ups remembering to keep your back straight and core tight.

9 – Squat Thrusts
