Five moves in five minutes

This routine is extremely easy—consisting of just 5 moves, you’ll be on your way to a more toned body in no time. Get ready to feel the burn!

1. Skier Swing:


Grab a set of dumbbells that suit your strength and hold them by your side. Bend your knees slightly and proceed to swing the dumbbells behind your back while you bend forward. Then swing your arms forward and have your arms straight out in front of you—very much like a skier on the slopes. Continue this movement for 50 seconds, rest for 10 seconds.

2. Plank walk-up:

Get yourself into the regular plank position with your elbows resting on the floor—be sure to keep your back straight. From this position, lift one arm so you are propped up on your hand, then lower in the same fashion and repeat with the other arm. Go back onto your elbows, one arm after the other. Repeat this movement for 50 seconds and rest for 10 seconds.

3. Dumbbell squat thrust:

Pick up your dumbbells and start in a standing position, feet a little more than shoulder-width apart. Squat down until the dumbbells are touching the floor and position them securely. Jump back with your feet so that you are in plank position, then jump forward and lift yourself back into standing position. Repeat the movement for 50 seconds and rest for 10 seconds.

4. Alternating shoulder press:


Start in a standing position, holding your dumbbells with your arms bent upwards by your sides. Lift one arm towards the sky until it is straight while twisting your body 90 degrees towards the other side. Twist back to standing position and repeat with the other arm. Continue this movement for 50 seconds and then rest for 10 seconds.

5. Rotating T extension:

You’re almost there! For the final move, you’ll want to get into a plank position on your hands. Rotate your torso to the right, raising your right arm toward the ceiling as you roll onto the outside of your left foot. Pause, then reverse the movement to return to start. Repeat this on the other side and continue this movement for 50 seconds. You’re done! You can rest for as long as you like!
