It seems like summer days are never ending with everything
that is packed into them. But what’s a girl to do when it’s supposed to be the
most relaxed time of the year, and the time when you’re supposed to have the
best bod? No one wants to spend their summer days working out. Trust us, we
know. So we’ve whipped up a ten-minute cardio blaster to get you whipped into
shape quick. Try it out on those days where you just can’t seem to find time to
workout. Or hey, even try it on those days when you do have free time, but you
don’t feel like spending it at the gym!
Start in a regular squat position – your feet should be
shoulder width apart and your arms should be by your sides. Begin the exercise
by doing a regular squat, but then jump up as explosively as you can with your
arms towards the air. When you come down to land, lower down into a squat
position. This is one rep. Repeat for one minute.
Start with your hands on the floor, a little more than
shoulder width apart, and one leg bent under your body. The other leg should be
extended back. Keep your upper body in place, and alternate your leg positions.
As you pull one leg in, the other one should be extending back simultaneously.
It’ll feel like you’re jumping from position to position. Do this for one
Run as fast as you can for 30 seconds, and then follow with
a minute jogging break. Repeat this three more times.
Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and your arms by
your sides. Jump up with your arms towards the ceiling and land in a crouched
position with your hands on the ground. Now, push your feet back, so that you
are in a push-up position. Return to the crouched position and then jump up to
be back to the start. All of these movements should flow together. Do as many
as you can in 30 seconds.
