1. Move and Groove: Turn on some tunes and dance–the more you shake it, the more calories you’ll melt!
2. Towel Shuffle: Stand with knees slightly bent, arms extended, holding towel taut at chest height. Step right foot to right followed by left foot 3 times; repeat to left.
3. Knee-Ups: Holding towel, do a little hop as you raise left knee and pass towel under leg from left hand to right. Repeat with right leg.
4. Stair Sizzler: Attack a set of stairs: Walk or jog up and down or, if you only have a couple of stairs, simply step up and down repeatedly.
Main Move: Front to Back Lunges
Stand with right foot on towel.
Slide leg back, bending knees to lower into a back lunge, keeping left knee over ankle and coming onto ball of right foot. Without lifting foot, slide right leg back to center, then forward, lowering into a front lunge, right knee bent over ankle. Slide right leg back to center to complete a rep. Do 8 times, then switch sides.
Now do a CARDIO BURST!
Make it easier: Do just the back lunge portion of the exercise 8 times.
Make it harder: Add pulses: While in lunge, raise and lower body a few inches 3 to 5 times before sliding foot back in.
Home Tone Up: Side Slides
Stand with a towel under left foot, hands-on hips.
Simultaneously sit back, bending right knee as close to 90 degrees as possible while keeping knee behind toes, and slide left leg out to side, keeping knee straight. Slide leg back to center and stand. Repeat 10 times; switch sides.
