Yes summer is fast approaching and breathing down our necks but that doesn’t mean we don’t have time to get our bodies where we need them.
“In preparation for summer I am all about having clients get results quick through compound workout routines”, says celeb trainer Marxel Leobez. “My program sculpts multiple muscle groups while torching calories for visible results.”
This guy has helped folks such as Nina Dobrev, Lea Michelle, and Reese Witherspoon get camera ready so why not try a few of his fave moves:
Muscles: Abs, Arms, Legs and Glutes
Start in High Plank , with your heart facing down towards square palms and hips squarely facing the floor. Align your body from the crown of your head to your heels with an engaged core no saggy hips. Keep your eyes on the floor to avoid neck strain.
Once you are in alignment begin to pull your knees to your opposite elbows. Start out at a moderate pace for 16 reps then increase your speed and do as many as you can 45 seconds.
Now get back into a high plank and quickly lift your right leg with pointed toe, and begin to pulse for 16 reps. All the while squeezing and engaging your glutes and tightening your core. Once you have completed the right side pull the right knee to cross underneath your body to tap the opposite left elbow for 16 reps. At the completion of the last rep hold and pulse for 16 more reps as fast as you can. Give the arms and legs a rest and relax for 20 seconds. Now repeat on the opposite side.
Lie flat on your back , with your navel pulled into your spin so that there is space between the floor and your lower back. Grab a 1 -2 pound weight/dumbell and bring it behind your neck so that your elbows point out wide to the side. Tuck your chin to look forward lift your shoulder and pulse. Keep the shoulders slightly elevated off the mat. Now rotate your chest right and left scooping in your mid abs by the slight rotation. Do this for 24 reps and hold to the right side and pulse keeping your arms wide left shoulder off the floor but maintaining your left hip glued to the floor. Rotate for another 24 reps then hold to the left side maintaining the same form. At the completion of your left side come back to center and pulse for 1 more minute.
Now relax and release thee weight and lie with legs up at a 45 degree angle. Reach towards your toes while holding weights in both hands. Pulse for 24 reps. While reaching for the toes, slowly lower the legs and arms down towards the floor for two counts and rise for two counts punching towards the toes. Repeat for 16 reps.
Release the weights and place hands under your butt and do leg scissors while maintaining a slight bend to effectively target the lower abs. Do this for 1 full minute.
Muscles: Glutes, Arms, Arms and Cardio system
Standing with legs wide and toes pointed forward bend to a flat back with your palms close to your heart. Now sway side to side targeting your thighs. Repeat for 24 reps then release the arms wide and long and reach opposite arm to leg twisting through your transverse abdominals for 24 more reps. Rise to a standing position and begin to punch as fast as you can alternating arms for 24 reps. Then proceed to doing jump squats by squatting low to the floor then jumping as high as you can for 1 full minute.
