With all of the sweets, treats and cocktails December brings, it’s easy to lose track of your fitness routine, especially when travel makes you forgo your normal gym. Here, fitness guru Anna Victoria gives us 3 simple sets of workout moves you don’t even have to leave the house to do. So wherever the holidays bring you, ensure that you’ll stay taut, toned and looking fit. See her tips and how-to video below.
Glute Bridge + Single Leg Glute Bridge
Begin by laying on the ground with your feet placed shoulder width apart, and hold a dumbbell in a comfortable position above your hips. Proceed to lift your hips straight up by pushing off your heels, and pause for a brief moment in the upwards position to squeeze your glutes together—this is the most important part. Repeat for 5 reps. Then switch to a Single-Leg Glute Bridge by raising one leg in the air, and push off the opposite foot for 5 reps. Remember to pause for a brief moment at the top so you can squeeze! Repeat on the opposite side for 5 reps.
Total: 15 reps
Commando + Side Plank Dip
Begin by performing a commando, start from a push-up position and lower yourself into a plank position one arm at a time, then immediately raise yourself from a plank position to a push-up position. Then, rotate to a side plank and dip your body down. The key is to lift your body back up by using your core strength. This counts as one rep. Continue to alternate between each side.
Total: 6 reps.
Side Plank + Three Way Leg Kicks
Begin in a side plank and maintain this position throughout. Proceed to kick your leg in three ways, one after another: 1. Knee to Elbow 2. Upwards Kick 3. Forward Kick. This counts as one round, repeat for 4 rounds for a total of 12 reps. On each kick, be sure to squeeze your core. This will help you maintain your balance and get the best ab workout possible!
Total: 12 reps.
