DON’T have time to work out?

Pearl Thusi shares the four moves every woman should know – and they’ll only take 10 min­utes!

Glamour (South Africa) - - Glamourama - Squats

For glutes, ham­strings and calves Pearl says, “Bal­ance your weight over your heels, not your toes, put your arms in front, bend your knees to 90 de­grees and squat down low, with a straight back. Come up for one rep. Do 30 reps.”

Lunges

For glutes, hips, thighs and ham­strings Pearl says, “Bend your left leg at 90 de­grees and ex­tend your right leg back­wards, tap­ping your knee to the floor. Re­turn to the start for one rep. Do 10 reps, change legs and re­peat.”

Box jumps

For your lower body and core Pearl says, “Put a box in front of you and jump on and off it for 60 sec­onds. Breathe for 10 sec­onds. Re­peat once.”

The yoga camel pose

For your back and pos­ture Pearl says, “Kneel so that your knees are in line with your hips and the soles of your feet face the ceil­ing, and place your hands on your hips. In­hale slowly, draw­ing in from your tail­bone to­wards the pu­bis as if you were be­ing pulled from your navel. Si­mul­ta­ne­ously arch back­wards and slide your palms over your feet un­til your arms are straight. Don’t strain or flex your neck. Keep the pose for eight counts, breathe out and slowly come back to the start­ing point. Bring your hands back to your hips as you straighten up. Re­peat twice.”
