We all want a toned body, but the moment we see pizza we forget about it. Well, unfortunately eating fast food and laying all day won’t give you the body you want. You need to set your mind, get up and move that body of yours if you want to see results.
In order to help you tone your body, we talked with Kelvin Gary, owner of Body Space Fitness. His specialty are the workouts for efficiently activating the whole body in the time you have to spare. He claims that in just one week you can renew your fitness dedication. Repeat every move for 10-15 times in a 3 set, every day for one week and tone your body from head to toe.
What you’ll need:
- Two dumbbells (12-15 pounds)
- Yoga mat
- Stability ball
Monday: Marching Bridge
Lie on the yoga mat and place your feet in front of your hips. Push up with your heels, while raising your butt and bring your body to a bridge position. Pull your right knee towards your face while keeping your back straight and foot flexed. Repeat with your left leg.
Tuesday: Abs of Steel With a Moving Plank
Do a plank pose, with a straight back. Reach out and touch the ground in front of you, one arm at a time. Keep your hips straight!
Wednesday: Dumbbell Rows
Grab the dumbbell with your left hand and lunge forward. Place your knee at a right angle and bend your arm on it. Push the elbow back and bring the dumbbell to your chest. Repeat the exercise on the other side of your body.
Thursday: Lateral Lunge
Stand with your feet squarely under your hips. Step backwards with your right foot, swing it across your left leg into a deep curtsy. Swing the right leg to the side while coming up and bending into a side lunge. Repeat with your other leg.
Friday: Dynamic Side Plank
Get into a side plank position. Dip your hip down to the floor and raise it back to the starting position slowly. Flip over and repeat!
Saturday: Dumbbell Squat
Grab a dumbbell in each hand and lower your body into a weighted squat. When you start coming up, pivot your right foot and raise one arm above you. Get back into squatting position.
Sunday: Stability Ball Chest Press
Sit on a stability ball and start stepping forward until your shoulders rest on the ball. Keep your back straight and hold the dumbbells in the same line as your shoulders. Press up slowly and lower your back down.
