Shoulders back, core in, and get ready to burn with reverse lunges and your water bottles.
Make sure you maintain a straight back at all times for each move, keeping your core engaged – so a ‘closed core, almost like putting on a cardigan,’ says Svava.
This workout also involves stretching your hips with alternating split leg plank stretches.
With the correct techniques, Svava makes it easier (hopefully) for you each time. As long as you try to keep up, you’ll be a somewhat-pro in no time.
10 minutes, five moves, two sets.
Perform each of the five moves for 40 seconds, followed by 20 seconds rest.
- Move #1 Reverse lunge with overhead lift using water bottles
- Move #2 Kneeling alternating shoulder press with water bottles
- Move #3 Jumping feet taps into a squat
- Move #4 Alternating split leg plank stretch
- Move #5 Plank knee to elbows
