Fast Workouts That Really Work

Friday, April 10, 2009 0 Comments

I know most of us want to stay fit and healthy. I was reading an article about fast workouts that really work. According to this article, you can can get an hour's worth of fitness and calorie burning in 20 short minutes. Well, for me, I prefer either walking, running or swimming. Here are some workouts you can do...

• Pick any cardio you like (running, swimming, the elliptical trainer).
• Tighten your tummy: Do two sets of 10 to 12 crunches on a stability ball.
• Firm up legs: Stand on left foot, hands on hips, and bring right knee to hip level in front. Trace a horizontal figure eight in front of you with knee. Then bend left knee and hop to right, landing on right foot. Repeat figure eight with left knee, then hop back to left to complete one rep. Do 10 reps, then hop back and forth 10 times to complete one set.

• Boost your bottom: Stand with feet hip-width apart, hands on waist. Shift weight to left foot and lift heel of right foot so you're resting on toes. Bend left knee and sink hips back, keeping weight off right foot (toes stay on ground). Rise up. Do 12 reps on left leg, then switch legs and repeat.

• Bare amazing arms: Holding a dumbbell in each hand, stand with feet hip-width apart. Raise arms, palms down, out and slightly forward to shoulder height. Slowly lower them behind you so weights almost touch. Do 12 reps.

• Slim all over: Stand with feet hip-width apart. Keeping legs as straight as possible, bend forward and walk hands out until they're under shoulders. Do two push-ups, then walk hands back and stand. Repeat twice, doing four push-ups, then six.
