Try this for a quick countdown styled work out. Repeat 2-3 times!
30 Mountain Climbers: Your start position would be a lunge with one leg in front and one behind, with both knees bent. You then switch by jumping in the air and land with the back leg in front, and front leg in back. Make sure to stay up right with good posture, and land each jump with soft knees. To modify this, you can switch by stepping into each lunge. Each “switch” counts as one. Go for 30! This will work your Quads, Hamstrings and glutes as well as some great intense cardio.
25 Monkey F’ers: This is that one move that looks super fun, even has a funny name, but once you get into it you have no reservations of screaming out the full name ;). Start with a wide stance and place both hands straight out in front of you with your palms UP. Keeping your palms up, bend down and reach underneath and between the space in your stance. Grab the back of your sneakers, or heels, hold tight. Hanging on to your heels for dear life, bend and straighten your legs as quickly as possible until you get to 25. This will work your Quads, hamstrings and glutes.
20 Full Sit Ups: If you have a hard time getting up all the way with a sit up, tuck your feet under the couch or chair. When doing any sit up or crunch, my number one rule is to keep your chin away from your chest. Try keeping your eyes on the ceiling or pretend you have an orange between your chin/chest. This will help you focus on engaging your core instead of just tossing your noggin around and getting a sore neck. Complete 20 full sit ups! This will work your core.
15 Backwards Dips: Start by sitting on the floor, with your hands behind you, and your fingers pointing towards your rear. Raise your bottom off the floor. Bend your elbows so that they point out behind you, and return back to straight. Keeping your bottom off the floor, repeat 15 times. These will work your triceps.
10 Push Ups: start in plank position. Make sure your hands are under your shoulders and your butt is in line with your back. To modify try a wider stance with your feet or drop down to your knees ( but still keep the back and butt in line!) Drop down for 10 pushups! These will work your core, back, chest, shoulders, triceps and your overall awesomeness.
5 Burpees: My favorite! Start with a jump! Then get down on to the floor. Any way you need to get down there and lay face down so all weight is on the floor. Whatever way you need to get up and start again with that jump. That is one! They don’t need to be pretty. Complete 5. Again another great cardio. These will work almost everything!
Try to take 15-30 seconds rest in between each exercise, and then 1-2 minutes in between each set! Go for at least 2 sets! For more workouts and video explanations of different exercises, join the Dani-Stream site for only $1.99/month being released DECEMBER 2014!
