Anyone else needing a total-body calorie burner today?
Happy day-after-Valentine’s Day, everyone! If you were anything like me and got a little carried away with food and treats last night (dang you, Valentine’s Day), you’re probably in the mood for some at-home calorie-shredding goodness today! This workout only takes 10 minutes, is mostly bodyweight (one pair of dumbbells is preferred), and is a great way to shred some of those few extra calories last night’s festivities may have incurred. Hope you enjoy it like I did!!
Feet shoulder with apart holding one dumbbell vertically with two hands (10 pounds would be a good weight to start with; if you don’t have one 10-pounder you can use two 5’s). Come into a 1/2 squat while keeping your back straight and explode up out of the squat while raising the dumbbell(s) towards the ceiling. Keep you back straight and control the speed of the weight as it returns back to its starting position. That’s one rep.
Works great under a table or between two chairs with a very strong handle (broomstick, shovel, etc). Hang underneath the table from your hands; just your heels should be on the floor. Pull with your back and arms to raise your chest to the table and then slowly return to start position. That’s one.
Feet shoulder-width apart; squat down to parallel and then explode up into a jump. Try to land as softly as possible and absorb the jump down into the squat position again. That’s one.
Plank position on elbows and toes – hold for 30 seconds
Finish off the set with some high knees! Rapidly bring your right knee straight up so your thigh is parallel to the floor. jump and put your right leg down while brining your left knee up to parallel. That’s one.
Rest 45 seconds
REPEAT 3 TIMES FOR A KILLER 10-MINUTE AT-HOME WORKOUT!
