We will be sharing out Jamie’s tips and workouts with you here on Happily Obsessed. This is the time of year when people’s wellness resolutions for the new year start to drop off and our fitness posts are here to help you stay on track!
To kick off the month of February (and only 10 days left til V-day), here is Cupid’s Challenge workout with Jamie showing you just how easy these moves are. Get fit ‘n’ fab in time for your Valentine’s Day date! Each move targets a different area so you get a full body workout.
1. Clock Lunges 10x (5x each leg)
Start in standing position, keep your chest up tall throughout the movements and your core engaged. Step your Right leg forward into a front lunge making sure to keep your knee in line with your ankle. Return to standing position. Step Right leg out into a side lunge – bend at the hips and keep weight in your heel. Return to standing position. Step Right leg behind you into a reverse lunge. Again, make sure to keep your knee and ankle in line. Return to standing position. That is one repetition. Repeat on the other side and alternate for a total of 10 times.
2. Burpees (15x)
Start in standing position, reach or jump up towards to ceiling. Come down to a tuck position. Walk or jump feet out to a plank and immediately walk or jump back to the tuck position. Reach or jump towards the ceiling. Complete 15 repetitions as fast as you can to burn some serious calories and tone up your core muscles.
3. Bent Knee Push Ups (20x)
Start on your hands and knees with your hands directly under your shoulders. Re-position your knees as needed to create a straight line in your body from the knees, through the torso and out through the head. There should be no bend at the hips. Keep your abs braced as you slowly bend your elbows and lower your body toward the floor. Press upward through your arms and straighten back to starting position.
4. Russian Twists (25x)
Sit on the floor with your knees bent, feet together. You can choose to keep your heels on the floor or for more of a challenge lift them up off the ground. Sit as tall as possible, keeping your back straight, arms clasp out in front. Exhale as you rotate your arms to the Right side, inhale as you return to center. Exhale as you rotate to the Left side, inhale to return to center.
