The Best Exercises to Make You Fit Fast
Do three complete rotations of these exercises, spending a minute on each exercise, and then rest for another minute each time you complete the five exercises. Be sure to do a quick stretching warmup before you work out.
- Reverse Lunges
You can use either dumbbells or a medicine ball for this exercise. To begin, you’ll want to stand holding a pair of dumbbells or a medicine ball at your sides, and make sure your feet are together. You’ll want to keep your chest lifted, head up, and knees slightly bent. Then you’ll want to step backward with your right leg, landing on the ball of your foot, and then bend both knees to lower towards the floor until your front thigh is parallel to the ground. From there, push off the ground to extend your knees and ships, and then stand back up and return to the starting position. Alternate legs with every repetition.
- Renegade Row Pushup to Side Plank
To begin this exercise, place two dumbbells on the floor about a shoulder width apart. Then you’ll want to position forward on balls of your feet and hands like a push up position. Make sure to keep your body straight and extended, and you’ll want to hold on to the handles of the dumbbells so that your upper body is supported. Widen feet for more core support. Then perform a pushup by bending your elbows and lowering your body towards the floor. You’ll want to push back to straight, continuing to push one dumbbell into the floor and row the other dumbbell, retracting the shoulder blade of the side you’re working on. Bend your elbow, pulling it up to your side and past your ribs. You’ll want to continue pushing your base arm down, reaching the top dumbbell into the air. Then turn to rotate on your feet until your body is aligned in a straight side plank line. Be sure to keep your core right, and your neck and spine aligned. Return to start and alternate sides.
- Wide Squat to Jump Squat
To begin this exercise, you’ll want to hold a heavy dumbbell or medicine ball in your arms or at your shoulders, and then place your feet shoulder width apart with your chest up. Then bend your knees, and sit back so that you’re squatting partially down. Immediately push yourself off the floor to explode off the ground, and into the air while extending your hips, knees, and ankles. Be sure to maintain good posture, keeping your core tight. Finally, return lightly to the ground, absorbing impact through your legs, and repeat.
- Reach and Twist
For this exercise, stand tall holding a heavy dumbbell or medicine ball in your arms. Then sit with your hips down, and bring yourself into a full squat position. From that position, you’re going to explode into an upright position pressing the dumbbells or medicine ball over your head while simultaneously rotating towards one side to reach the dumbbell or medicine ball up towards a diagonal. You’ll want to make sure that your front leg stays stationary, and that your back leg rotates, pivoting on toes. Pause and gain control of the weight overhead before lowering the weight down to starting position. You’ll want to repeat alternating directions.
- Triceps Press and Core Crunch
To begin this exercise, you’ll want to recline on your back with your feet on the floor. Hold a dumbbell or medicine ball with a narrow grip and lift it over your head. Then bend your elbows and lower forearms, and bring the dumbbells or medicine ball behind your head. Make sure you keep your upper arms straight with your elbows stationary. Then press upward, extending your forearms back up to the starting position. Continue to push dumbbells or medicine ball to the ceiling, lifting your head, chest, and shoulders off the floor. You’ll want to simultaneously contract your abdominals while lifting your legs and pulling your knees to your arms until your hips are off the floor, and your body is in a total body crunch position. Then lower yourself slowly back to the starting position and repeat.
These exercises will help to tone your entire body, and you’ll start seeing results within a month. If you keep it up, you’ll be looking fabulous by Labor Day!
Need a Little Extra Help Getting that Hot Body?
Get fit this summer with VelaShape, the only FDA-cleared body contouring device. It effectively and safely contours, shapes and slims the body by reducing cellulite and firming problem areas — all in as little as four treatments.
The treatment works via an intricate set of mechanisms. VelaShape boasts four different components – radiofrequency, infrared light, vacuum suction and mechanical massage. The infrared light and radiofrequency energies allow VelaShape to precisely heat dermal and hypodermal tissue in the treatment area. This heating effect boosts fat cell metabolism and reduces the number and size of fat cells, thereby eliminating cellulite. At the same time, VelaShape’s mechanical massage rollers gently knead the area, increasing circulation, encouraging lymphatic drainage and eliminating fat cell byproducts and toxins. Finally, the vacuum suction technology smooths out dimples by stretching fibrous bands in the epidermis, reducing the appearance of cellulite. The end result of these high-tech applications is a significant reduction in body circumference and cellulite, and smoother, firmer skin.
So what happens exactly during a VelaShape treatment? First you’ll be asked to lie down on a table, and one of our medical professionals will apply a lotion-type spray to the treatment area. The VelaShape machine will then be gently placed on the skin, and you’ll generally feel a persistent rolling massage sensation that slowly begins to heat up. Slight pressure will then be applied to the area while the skin is being massaged. Most people agree that the procedure is relatively painless – in fact, many compare it to a warm, relaxing deep tissue massage. And it’s relatively short too. Depending on the area being treated, VelaShape sessions typically last between 20 and 40 minutes.
Most people notice exciting results after just one treatment, including tighter, firmer and smoother skin. After six treatments, people see a significant reduction in cellulite, along with a few inches in circumferential reduction. The best part? You’ll be able to hit the beach again in no time!
Slim down by Labor Day with Zerona, a cutting-edge body contouring procedure that effectively removes excess fat without any negative side effects.
How does it slim and tone the body? Zerona utilizes cold laser technology, which emulsifies fat and allows it to move to interstitial space. More specifically, the cold laser technology’s low-level laser stimulation exclusively releases the cellular contents of fat cells while leaving the capillaries and other cells within the interstitial space intact. By disrupting the cell’s membrane, the cell then releases its fat contents. Once the fat contents are released, the body’s lymphatic system absorbs it. Basically, Zerona procedures cause fat cells to shrink, resulting in a loss of inches on areas such as the waist, hips and thighs.
Zerona treatments are no sweat. During a Zerona treatment session, which takes approximately 40 minutes, patients are asked to lie down on a table. For the first 20 minutes, five cold lasers target patients’ front bodies, and for the remaining 20 minutes, the back part of their bodies is then treated. The best part of Zerona is that is it completely pain free and there are no adverse post-procedural side effects, meaning no downtime.
Patients are required to commit to a series of six treatments every other day for two weeks, and they cannot exceed more than 72 hours between treatments. If more than 72 hours intervene, the fat cells may reuptake some of the fat. It is important for patients to adhere to a strict diet and exercise regime, with includes exercising for at least 30 minutes a day, drinking between 8 and 10 glasses of water daily, and refraining from caffeine and alcohol consumption (caffeine and alcohol interfere with the lymphatic process of removing and metabolizing fat, which could make the treatment less effective). By maintaining a healthy diet and exercise program, patients can expect long term results.
Zerona treatments are so effective that most patients experience an average loss of 3.64 inches on their waist, hips and thighs in a matter of weeks. Some patients even witness a nine inch circumferential reduction after their first series of treatments, and results can be seen in as little as fourteen days.
Best of all, results can be permanently maintained by following an easy, healthy diet and exercise program that consists of exercising a minimum of 30 minutes a day, drinking at least eight glasses of water daily, and refraining from consuming alcohol or caffeine.
