Tone-Up From Head To Toe With This Killer 15-Minute Workout
Gym equipment sponsored by
Your toned body awaits.
This killer head-to-toe toning workout was designed with the help of exercise physiologist and group fitness manager Amy Dixon. It’s perfect for when you’re stuck somewhere with no gym access.
Do these moves one after another with no rest between them. When you’ve finished the last move, pause 30 to 60 seconds, then repeat the circuit twice more.
Watch one of our WH staffers perform the moves:
One-Leg Squat, Floor Reach And Press
Stand with your fee hip-width apart and your arms at your sides. Bend your left knee, lifting your foot behind you. Squat and raise your right arm out to the side to shoulder height, then reach your left hand down across your body, touching the floor outside your right toes. Stand up as you lift your left hand toward the ceiling, lower your right arm to your side, and raise your left thigh to hip level in front of you. Lower your left leg and repeat on the other side. That’s one rep. Do 12 to 15 reps.
Get in high plank (top of a push-up) with your hands wider than shoulder-width apart. Lower your chest as close to the floor as you can. Holding that position, lift your right knee to the outside of your right elbow. Return to high plank, then push back up to the starting position; repeat on the other side. That’s one rep. Do 12 to 15 reps.
Front Lunge Floor Reach And Reverse Twist
Stand with your feet hip-width apart and your arms at your sides. Lunge forward with your left leg so your right knee is nearly touching the floor and your left thigh is parallel to the floor. Bending forward, try to touch the floor on either side of your left foot. Push off your left foot; using that momentum, step forward with your right foot, shifting your weight to that foot, and swing your left leg behind you. As you sink backward into a lunge, rotate your torso 45 degrees to the right. Return to standing. That’s one rep. Do 12 to 15 reps.
Grand Plié Squat, Reach And Jump
Stand with your legs wide apart, toes turned out, and arms at your sides. Squat until your thighs are parallel to the floor and you’re low enough to touch it with your fingertips. Immediately jump as high as you can, keeping your legs wide and extending your arms straight overhead. Thats one rep. Do 12 to 15 reps.
