  • The turn of the new year triggers a desire for most people to want to feel better, be better and look better.
  • Exercise and physical fitness buffs are aware that one’s basal metabolic rate is higher in the colder months because your metabolism works extra hard to keep you warm.
  • Summer is just around the corner and no one wants to feel insecure on the beach. Not that you should: no one really cares.

But in case you have fallen prey to the aforementioned notions, here are 5 exercises that we have put together that are sure to get you feeling fitter and looking better in twelve days.

 


Squat Complex
This is a great combination move for toning and firming up legs and glutes! Perform 8 reps for 1 set and complete a total of 4 sets for a “kick-ass” work out

Hip bridges are great for firming up the gluteal muscles (buns)

Lie flat on the floor on your back with the hands by your side and your knees bent. Your feet should be placed around shoulder width. This will be your starting position.
Pushing mainly with your heels, lift your hips off the floor while keeping your back straight. Breathe out as you perform this part of the motion and hold at the top for a second.
Slowly go back to the starting position as you breathe in.

Modified pushup to Plank
Here is a great combination to tone up your midsection, upper-body and arms.
Follow 10 push ups with a 20 second plank hold. Repeat 8 times to burn a good amount of calories!

Bear squats.
Here is a nice total body movement to decimate some calories
Start off in the plank position and then recline the the hips into a sitting position.
Do this for one minute, and repeat 5 times.

 

Bear Plank Tap

Get into a plank position and bring the knees in at 90 degrees. Hold that position and tap the opposite shoulder (alternate).This is a great one to train all muscle on the front of your body (anterior chain).
