Skoog’s Quick Workout

December 23, 2010

I’m insanely busy…which is why I haven’t been consistently blogging this week — the holidays are upon us!  Below I share a workout you can do anytime, anywhere for about 20-30 minutes.  It’s a calorie blaster and metabolism speeder-upper!

Preliminary stretch/joint prep 2-5 minutes
repeat the following set of exercises 3-5 times, depending on time:
40 jumping jacks
25 deep squats
15 pushups
30 crunches with feet off the floor
20 alternating lunges
15 dips
plank 1 minute

Let me know if you do it and how long it takes!  Stay active!

Yours in health,

    • SkoogFit Says:

      Hi Barb!
      Dip: Sit on a sturdy bench with your hands firmly by your hips. Walk feet forward until butt is dangling off bench. Bend & straighten elbows, keeping neck long and shoulders away from ears. This works your triceps (and anterior deltoid)
      Plank: Lie face-down on floor. Prop yourself up on your toes and forearms, hips an inch or two above shoulder level. Hold as long as you can, working up to a minute. If you feel your low back, come down.
