Where there's a step, there's a way: 6 exercises you can do on a step for a full body workout.
Rochelle and I planned for a run along the lake. It didn't happen. What did happen was a lot of girl talk, people watching and by the time we knew it we were in 30 minutes deep and didn't workout one bit. Instead of running, because it clearly wasn't going to happen, and now short on time, we decided to get some quick cardio and toning in with these 6 exercises.
Try 10 reps of each move, repeat twice and do your last set to failure.
You can do this in less than 30 minutes.
Toe touches- this is your warm up. Get that heart rate going.
Jump Squats- abs tight, strong quads, really focus on that squat when you reach the top. Take your time to perfect your form.
Lunges- Watch for your knee going over your toes, that’s a no-no. Adjust your position and without going over your toes, get as close to perpendicular as you can. Remember to squeeze those glutes when you extend for some extra booty werk.
Step ups- losing balance is easy with this one, but a tight core can help with that. Engage your arms for momentum, this is cardio!
Triceps- straight legs, deep dips. take advantage of your body as a weight.
Push ups- elbows in, body straight. Go as far down as you can go to feel your shoulders and upper back engaged.
