We are mid way through summer and the thought of cosy winter days, the autumn collections in the shops and the fact you’ve already had your beach holiday can make all motivation to exercise and stay healthy go out the window. That’s why I thought I’d give you a little mid week move that I think it fabulous for achieving a hot body, flexibility, upper body and core strength as well as getting your blood flowing. You could add this to your workout routine or add to the end of my bikini ab or butt workouts (click for links). I love this move! Even doing 10 of these moves alone in the morning will wake you up and help you feel fit, strong and confident for the day ahead. See below for pics and descriptions…
A. Start in a downward dog position with the heels lifted and really stretch and lengthen your spine.
B. Extend one leg up in the air and really flex through your heel, keep the hips level but try to get the leg as high as you can.
C. Place the foot down and lower your hips into a strong plank position.
D. Take the same leg you extend back and cross it over your body then stretch the leg along the floor as high as you can.
E. See if you can now do a push up (as you can see I am still working on my upper body strength but get as low as you can)
You will then push back up into the downward dog and repeat on the other side.
Now over to you, tweet, instagram or facebook me your workout selfies after doing my hot body move 10 times!
