Living with a jam-packed schedule is second nature to Kate Hudson, but that doesn’t stop her from getting in her workouts even when they are on the fly. Check out some fun moves that you can do almost anywhere. They are sure to jumpstart your day, especially if it’s a hectic one.
MOVE 1: Step-ups
Instead of using a step stool or block like you do in the gym, take advantage of your natural landscape for some sweat-making step-ups—the higher the step, the better the workout. Simply step up onto the object with one leg and let the relaxed leg follow. Then step back down with the relaxed leg. Do as many sets as you see fit and then switch legs. Do 30 reps for 2 sets.
MOVE 2: Dips
Ever dream of having Kate’s toned arms? Well, this little workout can help get you there. For this move, you can use a chair at home or any other raised object outside. Walk out your feet in front of you and bend your arms to lower your body. Get your butt as far down as possible and then push your body up with your arms. Do 10-14 reps for 3 or 4 sets.
MOVE 3: The Leap
You may not see this move at the gym because it’s more spontaneous and free-formed. Use two raised surfaces (or even a flat surface) and jump from one side to the other. Each time you land, do a deep squat. Do 15 reps for 3 sets.
