Strength-Training Routine 1
Strapped for time? Aim for 10 to 20 minutes every day, doing two complete sets, with 10 reps of each exercise.
- Arm circles: With arms out to the side, make dinner plate-size circles with your fists. Do 10 in each direction and repeat.
- Simple squats: Place your hands behind your head. With feet shoulder-width apart, lower yourself as if about to sit in a chair. Do two sets of 10 repetitions.
- Knee push-ups: Lie on your stomach, hands under your shoulders, knees bent, and feet together. Push up, then lie back down. Do two sets of 10 repetitions.
- Reverse crunches: Lie on your back, knees bent at a 90-degree angle. Place your hands behind your head and bring your knees toward your face while exhaling. Do two sets of 10 repetitions.
