Ensure you start with shoulder width apart feet: take the first one slow - jump feet out and back in as you squat your booty to the floor.
Stay still in the same spot: b. is rotation to show you how low you need to go.
Variation: place hand in front rather than clasp together at centre.
Push Up Alternative
Complete a set of plank or push up alternatives to complete whole body workout.
This exercise focuses on the core, abdominals, lower back and arms. It is a great alignment exercise also so after wearing heels on the weekend it will help to reset your body. Focus by pulling in through your belly button. Hold in the plank for 20 secs if you are still at a beginner level of push ups. Add the push up if you can and add the alternate arm also. Complete 10 of the variation 3 times.
Complete a set of 16 lunges per leg x 3 sets : Hands on hips and ensure your knee touches the ground and your back foot goes back to the toe. As an alternative : complete a set of walking lunges on the opposite day: 40 walking lunges x 3 sets and feel those thighs burn. Remember if it burns its the fat cells melting!
