Work your way to a leaner body like Jessica with these essential moves...
Step into shape
How many?8-10 per leg
How to do:Stand up straight holding two light dumbbells at your sides. Step forward with your left leg and keeping torso erect, bend knees towards the floor. Repeat with right leg.
Benefits?The perfect way to warm up the muscles, Jason says walking lunges help “stretch the leg and glute muscles.”
Target your tum
What?Hanging Leg Raises
How many?3 sets of 15 reps
How to do?Hold onto a pull-up bar and pull your knees up above your waist. Hold briefly and then lower your legs back down.
Benefits?Hanging leg raises target your abs and lower back. Jason says, “They don’t build a six-pack, but they flatten.”
Jump to it
How many?Two sets
How to do?Jump from the bottom step of a flight of at least 20 stairs to the third step, (so skipping one step during each jump).
Benefits?This body conditioning exercise helps to keep the figure lean – but it’s not an easy one to do straight off! Jason revealed, “After Jessica did these for the first time, she would’ve punched me if she had the energy.”
