Quick Workout for a Night Out

This week’s workout is for all the ladies and gents living for the weekend. Whether you’re going out tonight with your friends, or on that hot date you’ve been planning all week, you’re ready to have some fun. One of my favorite parts about going out is actually getting ready to go out. Yes, it’s about the fashion, but it’s also about how you wear your look.

So today, we’re going to really sweat. You’re going to push yourself so that when it comes time to slip into that little black dress or suit, you look and feel smokin’ hot. The results you want to see aren’t going to happen without some serious work. So get up from behind your computer and do this workout, step by step, with me!

And while you’re at it, share it! With your friends, family and coworkers — everyone you know! Enlist an army of babes or bros to do this workout with you, then take on the night with your crew!

When you look good, you feel good — it’s a fact!

BREAKDOWN //

1 // Oblique Jump Ins + Outs

Step 1 //

Start in downward dog position. To do this, place your hands on the floor in front of your head, extend your legs straight out behind you, then lift your butt in the air towards the ceiling. Your body should form an upside down V shape.

Step 2 //

Begin the exercise by jumping both feet up towards your hands and over to the right side of your mat/body. Use your ab muscles to propel your feet forward.

Step 3 //

Jump your feet back together to starting position behind your body, then jump them up and over to the left side of your mat/body. Repeat this sequence for 1 minute.

2 // Supermans

Step 1 //

Lie down on the ground, flat on your stomach. Extend your arms and legs straight out in either direction, keeping them about shoulder width apart.

Step 2 //

Begin the exercise by raising all four limbs off the ground at the same time. As you do this, your torso should raise slightly off the ground as well.

Step 3 //

Bring your limbs back down to the floor, but not touching them to the ground completely. Repeat the raising and lowering motion over and over for 1 minute.

3 // Twisting Broncos

Step 1 //

Start in downward dog position. Then bring your left foot beneath your right leg to cross your legs at the knees.

Step 2 //

Begin the exercise by jumping up and switching the way that your legs are crossed. So bring your right foot beneath your left leg to cross your legs at the knees with your left leg now on top. Repeat the jumping/switching motion repeatedly for 1 minute.

4 // Glute Thrusts

Step 1 //

Begin standing with your legs a little more than shoulder width apart.

Step 2 //

Bend your legs to sink into a deep squat. Keep your back straight as you do this and make sure not to drop your chest too much on the way down.

Step 3 //

Straighten your legs to return to starting position. Once your legs are fully extended again, thrust your hips forward and squeeze your glutes. Repeat the exercise for 1 minute.

5 // Boat Pose Twists

Step 1 //

Sit down on the ground and form a V shape with your body. Straighten your legs and raise them towards the ceiling on a diagonal. Lean your torso back on a diagonal and engage your abs to hold your body in this position.

Step 2 //

Then begin moving your arms in tandem from one side of your body to the other. You can place the palms of your hands together and touch the floor with your fingertips to ensure that you’re twisting as much as you can each time. Do this for 1 minute.

How’d it go? Did you work up a sweat? If not, give it another go! The more rounds you do, the more your muscles will feel the burn. And in the end, the better you will look. Combine this workout with some cardio circuits and a lean, clean meal plan, and by the end of the week you’ll be more than ready to hit the town with your best body.
