MAKE IT A WORKOUT
Complete four rounds in descending order, doing 40, then 30, 20 and 10 reps of the following, trying to beat your time in each round: This exercise really works your cardiovascular system. SET-UP Assume a pushup-ready position, resting on your toes, hands directly under your shoulders and your body forming a straight line. This one is called “dead bug” for good reason, and you may get a few funny looks while doing it, but it’s a great move for your core. SET-UP Lie flat on your back with your hands and feet pointing straight up in the air. EXECUTION Take your weight onto your hands momentarily as you jump both feet up towards your chest (pictured), then kick both feet back to the starting position. This is 1 rep. These are harder than they look so rest if you need to. This is your starting position. Remember to keep on breathing throughout. EXECUTION Using your core, simultaneously lower your left hand and right foot to the floor, then lift them back up to the starting position. This is 1 rep. Go into a rep on the other side.
