Summer home workouts can be incredibly quick and effective. And you don’t even need much home workout equipment.
Just follow one rule: Move as much as you can in the time you have. That means switching quickly between exercises and adding cardio bursts.
Following are three home workout routines that each require one tool!
Do them on their own if you’re short on gear (or time), or combine them. Either way, you’ll sculpt from head to toe, shed fat, and be the envy of your gym-going friends!
The Summer Home Workout Plan
A stability ball, or 2 hand towels, or an 8- to 10-pound dumbbell (or a full 24-ounce water bottle). If you want to do all 3 workouts, you’ll need all the tools. Find gear at theshapestore.com.
How it works
Three times a week, do each move in order for 1 minute. Rest for a minute after the cardio burst, then repeat the series or start the next one. Do each group 3 times.
Workout #1: Stability Ball Front Squat
Body Parts: Butt, Legs
Equiptment: Balance Ball
A. Place a stability ball against a wall and lean your chest against it. Step back about 2 feet so you’re at an angle, and rise up onto the balls of your feet. Leaning against ball with your hands at your sides, lower into a squat, keeping heels up and back straight, until ball is at chin level.
B. Stand up, squeezing glutes tight and staying on your toes. Lower and repeat.
Workout #2: Stability Ball Military Press Push-Up
