Jumping jacks

The humble jumping jack workouts out the entire body, and also keeps your heart-rate up and running! Start with 15 per session, then increase 10 over each day. Be sure to use your arms for extra stability.

Squats

Squats will become your best friend (or worst enemy) after this workout is complete. As always, start with 5 squats until your body is ready to progress to 10 or possibly 15 over the next week.

Russian twists

Workout your arms, legs, and core muscles at the same time with a Russian Twist. The most effective way to nail this exercise is by keeping your legs off the ground, and twisting your body from side to side.

Plank

The plank might feel as dreadful as the squat, but it’s so good for you! Keep your arms at a 90º angle, and it will give you enough stability to keep this position for 20-40 seconds, easily.

Kneeling push-up

An effective workout which is taking the pushup to a completely new level! This is a popular method used by NFL Cheerleaders to achieve their toned physiques before each game. Keep your legs elevated at a 90º angle, then push up with your arms.

Superman

Work your love handles with this interesting little routine called Superman. Lie down flat on your stomach, then try and extend your arms and legs off of the floor. You should feel a burn in your abdominal muscles.

Lunges

Finish your workout with a few lunges to make your legs look toned and sculpted. Try a tick-tock lunge in which you quickly alternate the lunge on each leg – your legs and core muscles will feel so good afterwards!
