Exercises for Day 1
Day 1: Crunches, modified push-ups (“girly” push-ups), forward lunges
Lying on the floor on your back, with the knees bent and the hands behind your head, when you exhale, raise your chest until your shoulder blades lift off the floor and when you inhale, slowly lower back in the start position. Tip: use only your abdominal muscles to lift you up.
Get down on your hands and knees, with your hands just outside the shoulder width. When you exhale bend your elbows and lower your chest until it makes a 90 degrees angle with your elbows. When you inhale, push up till your arms are straight and the elbows completely locked. Tip: works the shoulders, triceps and chest.
In the start position your feet should be about 6 inches apart from each other and the toes should be pointed forward. When you inhale, step forward with one leg and then lower your body to 90 degrees at both knees, keeping the weight on your heals. When you exhale push up and back to the start position. Repeat 10-15 times with one leg and then switch the leg.
