Look Sexy Naked for Valentine’s Day!

Ever feel like this guy?

You’re not alone! And with Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, I figured I’d share some moves to help you get a tighter butt, flatter tummy, and all around sexy body in time for VD!…probably should think of a better abbreviation.

Here’s the plan:

This week, add these moves (2 sets of everything) in addition to your current routine:

1.  Squat with a Donkey Kick – 40 reps

Great for the legs and the butt! Stand up straight. Keep your feet shoulder-width apart. Come down into a squat position. Stand back up but lift your leg back behind you as you do. Repeat and lift the other leg back. You should feel it in your glutes!

NOTE: It’s important to alternate one leg and then the other – if you attempt to lift both legs at once you will most likely fall down. ;)

2.  Kneeling Side Kicks – 20 reps, each side.

 

These tone the thighs & butt. Begin by kneeling. Lean to the left. Place your left hand on a mat under your shoulder and your right hand behind your head with the elbow pointing up. Raise your right leg until it is parallel to the floor. Holding the torso steady, kick the leg to the front and then to the back. Keep your knee straight.

3. Standing Side Crunches – 20 reps

These target the obliques (aka LOVE handles). Stand with feet shoulder-width, hands behind head. Lift right knee to side; pull right elbow down. Return to start; repeat on left side; that’s 1 rep.

4. Walking Lunges with a Twist:  10 reps (Add a dumbbell or plate if you have one).

These target the legs and obliques. Stand with your feet hip-width apart.

(A). With your right leg, lunge forward about three feet until your right thigh is parallel to the floor and your left knee is nearly touching the floor. At the same time, twist your upper body 90 degrees to the right

(B). Twist and step back to start, then repeat, stepping with the left leg and twisting to the left. That’s 1 rep.

5. CARDIO!!!  Soulcycle, running, jumping jacks, stair climbing, jump roping, cycling, whatever!  Try adding 10min to your routine. If you do cardio just 4x’s a week, that’s 40 extra minutes!  …or if you never do it, that’s 10min/a day better than sitting on the couch!

 

Your body will feel healthier, and while getting results requires you to stay consistent over time-  the confidence you gain is instant!
