1 x drink bottle 1 x towel
Bub is down for a nap and you are up for an at home workout. Who knows how long your bub will nap for, so let’s get that fat burning started and get burning fast.
Before you start, complete a short warm-up which might include marching on the spot or a shot walk.
Step 1 – Lunge knee lift:
Step one leg back long, hip width apart to the 90 degree of the front leg and your back leg in lunge position, lowering the hips. Lift through your hips and drive your rear knee forward to your hip height, activating some serious burn and tone on your glute area and quad muscles. Return to the lunge, repeat and alternate sides.
7 reps each leg or to your maximum
Step 2 – Dynamic Lunges:
Similar to step one, step one leg back out long into a lunge position with your feet hip width apart. Lower yourself down into a 90 degree front leg, back leg lunge position. Then rise, pushing through your legs, off from the heel of your foot and return your feet side-by-side. Repeat on the other side. Swing your arms in a running movement to power through your lunges and increase speed slightly.
15 reps each leg or to your maximum
Step 3 – Side squat and lunge:
Stand with your feet hip width apart, with your fists comfortably resting on your hips. Step to the side into a wide squat sinking down to 90degree knee bend and ensuring weight is in your heels. Reverse the movement stepping the same foot in and straight back to the lunge position hitting that 90degree knee bend. Push up out of the lunge and repeat on the other side.
7 reps each side or to your maximum
