We know how it is... We get super busy with work, kids, or just trying to keep up with a social life and the last thing we want to do is go to the gym for a long intense workout. Well here are some great workout tips that you can do at home and it will only take up a few minutes out of your day!
For the Legs!
Lunges not only help build muscle in the legs but its also great for working that booty too ;) Lunges are an essential workout to tone the lower body. They also help in balance and toning core muscles.
We suggest doing 3 sets of 20 for each leg. Remember to keep your upper body straight and shoulders back and relaxed. Also, be careful not to let your knee go past the foot in order to do a proper lunge.
For the Booty!
Squats are great for building up the booty muscle! The lower the squat the better, this will help build up more muscle and burn more fat. Squats can actually help improve upper and lower body strength too, and build muscle throughout the entire body.
Squats are also one of the most efficient ways to burn fat, because the more muscle you build the faster it is to burn calories. So don't forget your squats!!
Be sure to keep your feet shoulder width apart. We also suggest doing 3 set of 20.
For the Arms!
You are going to want to focus on your bicep, triceps, and shoulders!
We recommend doing 3 set of 10 of bicep curls. This is one of the most beneficial workouts for toning your arms. Start out with whatever weight you are comfortable with and work your way up.
The One Arm-Kickback is one of the best ways to strengthen your triceps. Be sure to keep the weight even and level with the floor. Also do 3 sets of 10 with this workout too!
To strengthen your shoulder you will need to do side arm raises. We suggest using a 5 pound weight for beginners so you don't pull anything. Do 3 sets of 15 for each arm. This will really tone and strengthen your shoulders. Also, do front arm raises to work more of those muscles in the shoulder. Be sure when you raise your arm that the weight is level with your shoulder.
For the Abs!
A good way to tone those abs is to do 10 crunches and then hold and pulse to burn more fat. We suggest doing 10 reps of each which will equal out to about 200. However, if you are a beginner definitely start out with about half the reps and work your way up!
Remember with all of these workouts to start small and then gradually build up and push your self!
