10 Minutes Of Cardio

Do any form of cardio for 10 minutes. You can run, do jumping jacks, high knees, forward kicks, etc.

Tabata Intervals

Now it’s time to do about 20 seconds of jumping squats, then rest for 10 seconds.

Next, do 20 seconds of speed skaters 4 times.

 

Ab Workout

For the abs, you are going to need to train your entire core. These include your rectus abdominis, transverse abdominis, external obliques and internal obliques.

Here Is The Workout:

Standing Side Abs

Stand up with feet hip distance apart. Place hands behind head, keeping your elbows out. Raise your right knee and lower your right elbow so that the two touch. Return to starting position. Continue for 30 seconds. Switch sides and repeat.

Dead Bug Abs

Lay down on the floor with your face toward the ceiling, right leg bent and left leg up towards the sky. Lower your right arm and left leg until they hover over the floor. Return to starting position and switch sides. Repeat for 1 minute.

Squat Thrusts

Crouch down and place your hands on the floor. Jump back into a plank position and then jump your feet forward toward your palms. Jump back and forth for 30 seconds. Switch sides and repeat.

 

These basic exercises can help women to feel confident as they get healthy and learn to love their bodies.
