30 Minutes or Less New Year WORKOUT! From Claudia

Hello Clean Eaters! Today I have another post from the WONDERFUL Claudia, over at ChicaLOVerde

She has a quick, efficent, do anywhere workout for you guys. It should take 30 minutes or less! 

This post also includes PICTURES!! How fancy is that? :) 

Happy New Year everyone!

I hope you all had a great holiday and that you are ready to work on those New Year’s resolutions!

By the time January comes most of us have set some goals for the year, and these are usually related to our body image and health. That’s why I wanted to share with you a quick exercise routine that you could do anywhere in half an hour or less.

I know we all have busy lives, but I don’t want time to be an excuse to not exercise. So just follow these movements at least three times a week and you’ll be in your way to a newer, healthier and leaner you!

1.  Run, Jog or Power Walk for 10 minutes: in order to raise your heart rate. If it’s raining or snowing outside you can try jumping rope, doing jumping jacks or, if you live in a building, going up and down the stairs… Remember, no excuses!

2.  To tone your upper body: Do 3 series of 12 repetitions of the movements showed in the picture below. If 12 reps are too much for you, do the most you can and increase your repetitions over time. You can also put your knees on the floor when doing the push-ups to make them easier.

3.  For your lower body: do 3 series of 12-15 repetitions of squats and lunges.

4.  To finish, let’s work those abs! If you usually don’t do abs just do one set of the movements showed in the picture below. If you feel your body can give more, try to go for 3 sets for a total of 300 abs. Do each movement 25 times (#2 repeat on both sides)

Let’s get started and prepare that body for the summer!
