6 To Slim: A Total-Body Tone-Up

by

[tps_header]No Gym? No Excuses! These are a few of my FAVORITE moves to burn major calories. It’s a perfect last-minute circuit to get you feeling bikini ready, and the best part is – all you need is YOU.

I love this workout because it truly targets your ENTIRE body and does some serious toning. You will feel the burn in your booty, legs, arms and abs. Each exercise in this circuit is designed to challenge your balance, strength and endurance.

The goal is to repeat the circuit 4 times, with little to no breaks. You can expect to burn over 200 calories in about 25min with this workout. While moving quickly will pump up your heart rate and help burn calories faster, you always want to make sure you are completing the exercises safely. Take the first round to get comfortable with the moves and then go from there.[/tps_header]

Oblique Toe Taps (10 each side)

Place your right hand on the floor, fingers spread wide and directly under your shoulder. Take a side plank with your left leg as your foundation, bringing your right leg out in front of your body. Once stable in your side plank, draw your belly button into your spine and squeeze into your obliques to lift your right leg up to meet your left hand. Lower and repeat 10 times.  Switch sides and complete 10 more.

Modification: You can always drop to your knee as you build up strength.
