Strength and Tone Workout
Here is a great bodyweight strength and tone workout
Before you begin the workout, do a warm-up. For this you can walk, jog, and skip. Also make sure to stretch.
For these exercises you are going to want to have a gym mat or something similar.
You are going to want to have a set number of each exercise you want to do per set. 12 would be a good number to start off with, but if you can’t do 12 then start at a number that you know you can reach.
The first exercise is push-ups. If these are hard for you, you can start with your knees on the ground and eventually get to the point when you are in normal push-up position.
After you have done your push-ups you are going to move onto squats. Do these with your arms straight up at either side of your head.
Superman for the Lower Back and Butt
Once you have completed the squats you are going to lay stomach down on your mat to do opposite arm/leg raises. This is going to really work out your lower back. You are going to raise the opposite arm with the opposite leg at the same time and switch back and forth.
Planks – Unreal for Great Abs
The forth exercise you are going to do will include different variations of the plank. You will begin with the basic plank, which is in push-up position with your forearms on the ground. Hold this for an allotted amount of time. Next you will do obliques in which you will hold yourself up on the side with one arm for an allotted amount of time and then do the same on the other side.
Bridges for Your Best Butt
Finally, you will lie on the mat with out back down. Have your knees bent, feet on the floor and hip-width apart and your arms by your side and lift your butt up.
Cool Down and Stretch
Once you are done with the workout make sure you cool down and stretch.
