Rachel’s Quick 10 Minute Work Out
Anyone else a little time poor at the moment? Here’s a super quick 10 minute workout to get the blood pumping and endorphins kicking!
Do this full routine 2 – 3 times per day with a 60 second rest in between each set and your workout is done and dusted! Easy!
50 x Jumping Jacks
Stand with your feet together and your hands down by your side. In one motion jump your feet out to the side and raise your arms above your head. Immediately reverse that motion by jumping back to the starting position.
40 x Crunches
Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor, hip width apart. Place your hands behind your head so your thumbs are behind your ears.
Hold your elbows out to the sides but rounded slightly in. Tilt your chin slightly, leaving a few inches of space between your chin and your chest.
Engage (tense) your core by sucking your belly button into your spine. Curl up and forward so that your head, neck, and shoulder blades lift off the floor.
Hold for a moment then lower slowly back down.
30 Second Plank
Start by getting into a push up position. Bend your elbows and rest your weight on your forearms and not on your hands.
Your body should form a straight line from shoulders to ankles. Engage (tense) your core/tummy.
Hold this position for 30 seconds.
20 x Modified Push Ups (OR full push up’s if you are game!!)
Get into a high plank position. Place your hands on the ground, directly under shoulders. Lower your knees to the ground. Begin to lower your upper body, keeping your back flat until your chest just grazes the floor. Push back up.
10 x Squats
Stand with your head facing forward and your chest held up and out. Place your feet shoulder width apart or slightly wider.
Sit back and down like you’re sitting into an imaginary chair and then stand up.
Make sure you have a really good stretch after!
