This weekend, if you’re not sure what to do, try my newest workout featuring on my YouTube channel called The Ice Cream Sundae Workout. Why is it called that? Because after you finish, you will feel like you deserve to have one! Try my banana soft-serve recipe instead!
Do each move for 1 minute without resting in between. After you have done each one, rest for 1-2 minutes and repeat 2 more times for a total of 3 sets.
Move #1 & 2: Curtsy & Kick
a) Start standing tall with feet shoulder width distance apart. Lunge back with your left foot behind your right hip. Stand back up.
b) Kick your left leg out to the side for a lateral leg lift.
c) Kick left leg out in front extending leg until it is completely straight.
d) Lean forward and kick left towards the back. Return to start and repeat. After 1 minute, repeat this move on the opposite side.
Move #3: Tree Trunk Hip Lifts
a) Lie down with rib cage pressing into the mat. Place feet up on a tree trunk or bench. Engage glutes.
b) Lift hips up as high as possible, squeeze at the top and slowly lower down to starting position. Repeat for 1 minute.
Move #4: Tuck with Oblique Twist
a) Start in plank position. Jump both feet in towards hands and quickly back out.
b) From plank position, twist body to the right lifting right arm up towards the sky. Lift left hip up as high possible. Place arm back down.
c) Twist to the opposite side lifting left arm up towards the sky. Crunch right hip up high and return to plank position. Repeat tuck and twist for 1 minute.
Move #5: Standing Elbow-to-Knee Twist
a) Start with feet a little wider than shoulder width distance apart. Reach right hand down towards left foot with all limbs straight. Feel a stretch behind your left hamstring.
b) Return to standing and bring left elbow to right knee, twisting at your waist, breathing out and engaging abs to protect your back.
If you are advanced, try doing this move 4-5 total times.
LOVE the workout- I tired it out the other day: http://www.supersana.com/2012/07/20/ramadan-mubarak/
2 questions —
1. Do you have any suggestion for workouts for thighs and hips? I do cardio 3x a week and also do weight training. However, when I do weight training for legs I do a lot of lunges, squats, calve raises, leg press, and hip abductor machines… But I never feel like my hips and inner thighs are targeted to be slimmer when doing them. Any suggestions on a specific move that would be good to add to a leg circuit?! Or are any of the moves above in your print out a good one?!
2. As far as working out tri’s goes — i definitely have gotten more definition with weights and stronger, but I feel like no matter what I can never fully get the area on the top of the triceps (like right under your shoulder/where your armpit begins if that makes sense? haha) to tone up. Is this purely an eat clean/cardio type of thing. In my opinion you have the perfect arms- sculpted, but not bulky which is exactly what i’m going for!
Thanks for your advice, you’re so motivational!
