I can't believe there is only one week until Valentine's Day! There is so much to celebrate on this day (even if you are single). Take the time to show the people in your life just how much you care about them - including yourself. 

 

Grab a few of your BFFs and try this Galentine's Day Full Body Heart Throb Workout. You can do this workout anywhere - because it is another NO EQUIPMENT required workout! I love no equipment workouts, because no equipment = no excuses. Try to complete all 7 exercises without taking a break and then REST for 1-2 minutes before repeating. You will be surprised at just how much you will really feel the burn!

Let's Go!

1. High-knees

1 minute

Stand with legs hip width apart and alternate driving your knees up towards your chest. Arms should follow this motion.

 

2. Burpees

10 reps

Begin in a standing position. Drop to a squat position and place your hands on the ground in front of you. Extend your legs back to a plank position, do a push up, and jump your feet back into a squat position. Jump into the air and repeat.

 

3. Modified V-ups

20 reps

Begin sitting up, with your back off the ground and your arms placed on the mat by your sides. Lift your legs 6 inches off the ground and draw them in to your torso. Extend the legs straight back to starting position and repeat. 

 

4. Forward Lunges

20 reps (10 on each side)

Step forward with one foot. Lower yourself down (not too far - do not touch your knee to the ground to avoid injury!) so that your front knee is in line with your front foot and your back leg is extended behind you, bent slightly. Repeat on other side.

 

5. Squat Jumps

10 reps

Stand with your feet slightly wider than shoulder width apart. Lower in to a squat position, keeping your knees in line with your feet.  Quickly explode in to the air and jump as high as you can. Land back down in a normal standing position. 

 

6. Russian (sitting) Twists

30 reps (15 on each side)

Sit on the floor with your knees bent and your toes lifted off the ground. Keep your back at a 45 degree angle, not rounded. Twist back and forth from side-to-side across your body, holding weight if desired. Complete 15 reps on each side, 30 reps total.

 

7. Forward Plank with Leg Lift

1 minute (30 seconds on each side)

Begin in a push up position. Lower your weight onto your forearms and engage your abdominal muscles to maintain a steady state. Make sure that your body is in a straight line from shoulders to ankles, and your belly button is pulled in towards your spine. Engage the glutes and hamstrings by slightly lift one leg to hover about 6 inches off the ground. Hold for 30 seconds and switch legs.
