Summer is here and that means it’s time to get our bodies into shape. So, this is where Pure Fitness steps in. The trainers are experts when it comes to toning up. And they’ve been teaching us some key fitness poses. Add the following six exercises into your circuit training routine, with 20 repetitions of each for three to four rounds. Take a 20-second rest in between each. And then strut your stuff with confidence this summer…
Jumping Lunges (30 secs)
Start off in a basic lunge pose and then jump up into the air. Switch your feet so you end up in a lunge with the opposite foot in front of you. Keep a steady rhythm going and do as many as you can, switching from your left to right foot.
Plank rows with dumbbells (20 reps)
Start off in a plank position with dumbbells in each hand. One by one, lift each dumbbell to your chest and then back down, all the while keeping your form.
Crunches (20 reps)
With your lower back flat on the ground, bend your knees with your feet flat on the floor. Tuck your chin in as you move up and down, making sure to tighten your core as you go. Your hands can go behind your head with your elbows out to the side.
Dumbell Push-ups (30 reps)
Start off in a plank position with the dumbbells under each hand. Keep your chest out and your core tight. Also keep your lower back flat. Watch your tempo as you lower yourself and raise yourself up.
