DON’T have time to work out?
Pearl Thusi shares the four moves every woman should know – and they’ll only take 10 minutes!
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.”
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.”
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.”
