5 Days of 5 Minute Workouts – Day 4

Get ready! This 5-minute workout will tighten and tone your full body. You’ll only complete each exercise once, so do your best to avoid taking any breaks. Make sure you have a stopwatch or clock nearby and get ready to work!

Knee tucks: 1 minute

This exercise is performed sitting down. With your hands behind you, lift your legs off the floor and tuck your knees into your chest. When you extend, lean back to get a full range of motion and then repeat the knee tuck. For a challenge, keep your hands off the floor.

Bent over row: 1 minute

Grab some medium dumbbells and begin in a bent-over position. Drop your chest slightly to ensure a flat back and row the dumbbells up to your ribcage. Squeeze your shoulder blades together to activate your back muscles. Make sure to keep a slight bend in your knees to protect your back.

Plank rainbow: 1 minute

Begin in a plank position with your shoulders directly above your elbows. While holding the plank position, drop your hips to one side and then up and over to the other. Repeat side-to-side, squeezing your obliques.

Romanian deadlifts: 1 minute

Grab some heavy dumbbells for this exercise. Start standing straight up and with a slight bend in your knees, push your hips back and slide the weights down the front of your legs. Let your chest drop while ensuring a flat back. You should feel a stretch down the back of you legs in your hamstrings. Make sure to control the movement on the way down and back up.

Thrusters: 1 minute

This exercise begins with a set of dumbbells in your hands placed near your shoulders. While squatting down, keep the weights in the same position and use your momentum to stand while pressing the dumbbells above your head. Engage your core and repeat the squat to press.
