Memorial Day Workout From the Gals at Tone It Up

The Tone It Up Bikini Body For Memorial Day!

Check out this great workout from the Tone It Up group.

Hey guys! It's Karena and Katrina from Tone It Up.com!

Memorial Day weekend is approaching!  Thank you to our nation’s heroes . . . the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard who have served and to those who currently serve.

Memorial Day is a time for remembering those who have given their lives to this country. It also marks the beginning of sunshine.

This means not only do we get to bring out the white clothing, but summer (ie: bikini season) is just around the corner!  Do this full body exercise ball workout to get that bikini bod!

STATIONARY TONE IT UP PLANK CHALLENGE

Roll out into plank position on the exercise ball (like in the previous move).  While keeping your abs tight and engaged, slowly and in a controlled motion, write out 'Tone It Up’ while balancing on the ball!  Breathe throughout the exercise!

EXERCISE BALL LEG CURL

Lie on your back with arms by your side and with straight legs, your feet resting on top of the exercise ball.   Press your heels into the ball and roll the ball toward your body until your legs are at 90 degrees.  Exhale on the way in, inhale on the way out.

GLUTE HIP LIFTS

Lie on your back with your arms to your side. Place your feet on top of the exercise ball. Bend your knees about 90 degrees and push your hips to the sky and slowly lower down. This really burns!!  It focuses on the glutes . . . the muscles that lift the buns, tone the thighs and it also works your lower back. Exhale on the way up, inhale on the way down. Repeat.

LEG EXTENSION WITH A CRUNCH

Hold the exercise ball between your feet in the center of the ball. Squeeze your inner thighs to hold it there. Bend your knees at 90 degrees.  As you extend your legs straight in the air, crunch up with your upper abs. When you crunch make sure you hold your neck lightly and do not pull on it. Lift your shoulder blades off of the ground using your upper abs.  Exhale on the way up, inhale on the way down.

EXERCISE BALL ASSISTED PUSH-UP

Get into a push-up position with your shins on top of the exercise ball. Keeping your abs tight, slowly lower your body down, and return to start.  Make sure you keep your abs engaged the entire time. Exhale on the way up, inhale on the way down.

EXERCISE BALL AB TUCKS

Hold yourself in a push-up position with your shins resting on the stability ball. Roll the exercise ball in toward your chest using your abdominal muscles.  Keep your abs engaged the entire time.  From the tucked position, lower your legs back out.  Slowly return down to the start position and repeat.

Your Trainers,

Katrina & Karena
