Workin Out Wednesday ~ Home Exercises

I (finally) came up with some exercises I want to do on a daily basis. They are

  • leg lifts (inner) ~ 25 each side
  • leg lifts (outer) ~ 25 each side
  • bum scoot ~ 5 minutes
  • wide squats ~ 25
  • legs-together squats ~ 25
  • crunches ~ 50
  • oblique crunches ~ 25 each side
  • ab twists (standing washing machine) ~ 25
  • shoulder lifts ~ 12
  • wall push-ups ~ 12
  • crab position push-ups (triceps) ~ 12

As I am not a personal trainer, does anyone have anything they can suggest I add to get an all-over tone?

  1. Wow. I have no expertise at all, so I can’t make any suggestions about your weight/muscle training program.

    One thing I do know: I love Leslie Sansone. She’s the best. If I hadn’t become so lazy that I can barely be bothered to pry myself off the sofa to go to the bathroom, I’d totally be doing one of her walking workouts each night. Maybe I need to make a mid-March resolution to get back on track.

  2. do the plank – you rest your weight on your toes and forearms and keep your belly off the ground – intense core workout (look it up for a good picture – sorry it’s not a good description :P).
