Here’s what to do: 1. Grab a beach ball, a Frisbee, and a pool noodle. 2. Head down to the beach, out to the yard, or over to the park (don’t forget your sunscreen). 3. Get ready to play off some serious fat and calories! This 30-minute routine by instructor Carol Johnson is based on her hot “Chisel” class at Crunch in New York City. Do it 4 times a week to lose up to 3 inches in 4 weeks.
Circles in the sky For core, inner thighs, outer hips, butt Lie on your back with hands behind your head. Contract abs, lifting upper body slightly off the ground. Raise right leg 5 inches (or keep it on the ground if that’s too challenging) and left leg straight up toward the sky. Keeping your core engaged and hips stable, trace 4 softball-size circles clockwise with your entire left leg; reverse, circling 4 times counterclockwise. Lower both legs, switch sides, and repeat.
WATER AEROBICS: Melt fat fast These cardio pool moves torch up to 10 calories per minute! Combine them for a 30-minute power session (10 minutes each) or do them in 2-minute cardio bursts between sculpting moves. Float faceup with noodle wrapped around back and under arms, holding ends with hands. Kick legs swiftly to move across pool (as shown).
