Warm Up

The success of every workout depends on the warm up. So, don’t forget this part of your daily workout routine in Planet Fitness or Curves. Here is one of the best methods of warming up your body before doing your actual workout routine.

  • Frontal lateral jack

Stand with your feet together and your arms on the sides. Jump out so that your feet are more than shoulder width apart. Swing out your arms forward alternately up to shoulder height. Repeat for 30 seconds.

  • Heel clicks

Stand on your left foot and then kick your right foot behind while swinging your right arm across. Do the same movements while standing on your right foot. Repeat for about 30 seconds.

  • Capoeira

Lean forward slightly while holding your core tight. Swing your arms around to your sides while tapping the same foot behind. Repeat the movements for 30 seconds.

  • Break the Board

Hop using your left foot and drive your right knee upwards. Switch legs and bring your arms above your head and then bring them down when your knee comes up. Repeat for 30 seconds. This will end your warm up.

Lower Body Workout

The following exercises will increase your strength.

  • Start by jumping from foot to foot like you are using a jumping rope, while moving your wrists in small circles on your sides. Do this for 20 seconds.
  • Assume a push up position but hold one leg off the floor behind. Jump your foot forward and then press and stand on one leg. Lower your body and jump out until your leg is straight. Perform these movements for 20 seconds and then switch legs.
  • Sit in a squat position on one side of the wall and pulse two times. Pivot your foot 90 degrees so that you are facing forward. Then start jumping and squatting alternately and then pivot 90 degrees to the other side. Pulse two time and then pivot to the center. This is one set. Repeat these alternating moves for 40 seconds.
  • Stand with your feet shoulder width apart. Then lower your body into squat position with your arms bent at your elbows. Jump from your squat position while straightening your arms.
  • Go back to the squat position and try to maintain a lower squat by having your heels raised above the floor. Hold this position for about 40 seconds.

Cardio Blast for the Lower Body

You need to jump rope for 20 seconds in between the following routines:
