- Fifteen squats
If you’re looking for a powerful way to boost your overall fitness and get some serious results — fast – then squats is your go-to exercise. It’s a leg exercise that promotes body-wide muscle building by catalyzing an anabolic environment. Squats are also one of the best functional exercises out there, promoting mobility and balance and helping you complete real-world activities with ease. Squats also help you to burn more fat, as one of the most time-efficient ways to burn more calories continually is by developing more muscle. Although squats have long been criticized for being destructive to your knees, research shows that when done properly, squats actually improve knee stability and strengthen connective tissue. And if you listen to the grapevine, squats is the number one reason given by women who suddenly developed more rotund derrieres.
- Ten Push-ups
Push–ups help you focus on your arms, abs and your lower body, all at the same time. They train your muscles to work together and become stronger. It is a strength exercise that also boosts metabolism
- Twenty Jumping jacks
Jumping jacks boost your heart rate. An increased heart rate causes the body to burn more calories and burn fat which results in weight loss. By breathing deeply while performing jumping jacks, blood circulation is improved which oxygenates your blood and muscles.
- Twenty Crunches
Crunches work on your abs and help burn belly fat. Crunches help improve balance by strengthening abdominal muscles. Strong core muscles improve posture, which helps to function efficiently in everyday activities. A healthy posture also helps prevent lower back pain and muscle injury.
- Ten Lunges
Lunges target the quadriceps, but involve additional muscles, including the glutes, hamstrings, calves and core muscles, making them an important exercise for toning the lower body. They are also back-friendly, because of the need to keep your back straight and your chest lifted, so you have little risk of back strain.
Stretch for a minute or two to bring your body back to rest. Congratulations, you are on your way to becoming a #FitFam champion!
