Today is only going to be 10 minutes but you’re going to feel the burn and probably be sore tomorrow — but feeling good! I’ve got a great lineup for you. Here’s what we’re going to do!
- Side leg extensions
- Side lift pulses
- Reverse leg lifts
- Plank presses and rocks
- Knee to elbow squeezes
- Slow squats
- Slow push ups
- Mountain climbers
You can read along in this blog post to get a feel for the workout before you watch the video and follow along with me. Each workout will be 40 seconds with 15 seconds of rest. Doing each exercise slowly will engage your muscles and help you get the most out of a short workout. Let’s get started!
Left and Right Side Leg Extensions
For the first exercise, we’re going to start off by standing on one side of your mat. You’re really going to sit back in your booty, and everything is going to be nice and slow. You’re going to extend one leg out to the side and then bring it back in, so kind of like gliding up and down. Keep your chest up and really push down into that supporting foot to keep yourself stable. We’re going to take it as slow as you can go. You may already be feeling the burn!
Side Lift Pulses
Next up, we’re going to take the leg up and hold it out to the side, lifting it up and down. Push the supporting leg down into the ground through your heel. Keep the chest up while you lift the leg up and down, and then take it over to the other side. This is going to shape and tone your thighs. Do you feel that burn? That means you’re doing it right. You’ve got this!
Reverse Leg Lifts
I love reverse leg lifts because of what they do for your booty! You’ll definitely feel the squeeze as we go through this one. Come to the other side of your mat, extend your right leg out toward the back, and start lifting up and down. Everything is in that supporting leg, so stay nice and strong, and bend low. Try to keep going as slow as you can. You’ll feel that burn! After those 40 seconds are up, it’s time for some kickbacks.
You can take a 15-second rest or you can do little kickbacks. These are also amazing for your booty. Bend a little deeper in that front knee and kick that foot out. Your glutes should be on fire. These are slow little motions lasting just a few more reps. You won’t need to do that many in order to optimize this exercise. Just do about five reps. Now let’s do reverse leg lifts and kickbacks on the other side. If you want to make it more challenging, you can extend your arms up all the way, keeping them close to your ears. Maintain your form and don’t bend your arms. If that’s too hard to balance, keep your arms down.
You’re doing great! Let’s keep going! We’re going to focus on our core with some planks. Come down to the ground this time, and make sure your hands are directly underneath your shoulders. Now, you’re going to send your hips towards the sky, then slowly bring them down. Hold that plank, and squeeze in your abs. Remember, this is really slow. Don’t rush it. After we have done 40 seconds of plank presses, we are going to do 40 seconds with plank rocks. Rock forward and backward slowly. Keep breathing into it! Give it all you’ve got! I know it’s challenging, but strengthening your core is essential for everything you do. Now, let’s get ready for the next exercise.
Knee to Elbow Squeezes
Next, you’re going to lie down on your back with your hands behind your head, arms bent, and elbows extended out on either side of you. Bring your legs up so your shins are parallel to the ground and your legs are bent at a 90-degree angle. This is your starting position. Now, use your core muscles to bring your elbows up towards your knees and your knees to your elbows (crunch those abs!), then extend all the way back out to the starting position. The goal here is to really make sure that your back is flat on the ground. Lift your chest, extend those legs and then you’ll want to bring the legs a little higher. Again it’s really slow and controlled so you can work those different muscle groups. You’re going to feel amazing! Tomorrow, these muscles might feel a little bit sore, but you can do it! It will be worth it. Do this for 40 seconds, and then for the rest period, just pulse up and down for 15 seconds.
Next, you are going to come all the way up to standing. We’re going to do a nice wide squat. Squat all the way down with your arms extending all the way to the top. Make sure you are sitting really low and taking it slow. Lean forward, making sure that spine is nice and straight. Let’s do this for 40 seconds. At the bottom, start pulsing for just about five seconds.
Remember, you set an intention for this workout. You are feeling confident and strong. You can do this! Squats are so good for the booty, thighs, and quads. You’re getting a full-body workout in just 10 minutes. Isn’t that amazing? Let me know if you like these slow-burn workouts, and I’ll make sure to post some more.
Almost there! We just have a couple more exercises. Now you’re going to take a narrow push up. Either come up onto your toes or go down to your knees and come down super, super slow. Then you’re going to push up and squeeze that belly button. Take it nice and slow. Squeeze those elbows in, and then push all the way up. Do this for 40 seconds. Stay strong. Don’t worry if you can’t go down all the way, just keep your form with a straight back.
Okay, we’ve reached the last exercise! Let’s give this one all you’ve got! I love mountain climbers because of how many muscles are worked at the same time. Stay in the push-up position, but bring your toes up closer to your palms. From here, you’re going to start kicking your legs out, one after another, almost as if half of your body is running or jogging while the other half is ready to do a push-up! Just 15 seconds! Finish by bringing your feet together and standing all the way up. You’re done!
You might feel sore tomorrow, but that’s a good thing! Your body will thank you. Make sure to drink lots of water today and take time to rest your mind and take deep breaths. Whenever you need a quick toning workout, you can watch this video and follow along. It’s fast, easy, and fits in with your busy lifestyle.
