Finding time to work out is hard — and coming up with a fitness routine can be even more challenging when you're crunched for time and in a rush. Well, personal trainer Will Weber stopped by TODAY to share a few exercises that will help you reshape your body. They're simple, low-impact moves you can do at home.
Weber's moves are designed to build strength, but won't leave you in pain. Follow the instructions below to get started!
Start with one leg on the step, bend your opposite leg so that your knee is almost touching the ground. Then step up, bringing that lower leg up to about hip-width height. Perform three sets of 10 repetitions per side.
With your back flat on the ground, bend your knees and place your heels on a bench. Keep your butt close to the edge of the bench. Thrust your hips into the air, while keeping your arms glued to the floor. Perform three sets of 20 repetitions.
Arnold press with reverse grip
While standing, grab a set of dumbbells (a weight you feel comfortable using) and raise them toward your shoulders, with palms facing toward you. Next, as you raise your arms overhead, turn your palms to face outward. Lower your weights the same way, return to starting position and repeat. Perform three sets of 16-20 repetitions.
Chest stretchresistance band
Grab a and hold one end of the band in each arm. Reach your arms out in front of you and widen them as far as you can — you should feel the band tighten as you do this. Perform three sets of 20 repetitions.
Lie on the ground with your legs raised in the air at a 90-degree angle. Raise your hands above your head and reach up to try to touch your toes. Perform three sets of 20 repetitions.
