THE 5 BEST WORKOUTS TO DO EVERY DAY! THEY ARE ALL VERY SHORT, BUT EXTREMELY EFFECTIVE!
Single leg lift kettlebell
Take a 20 lbs kettle bell in the left hand. Stand on the right leg. Keep your other leg a bit on the ground, but make sure your back is straight. Your left knee should be bent, the upper body forward and the free leg extended behind for balance.
Lower down the kettle bell close to the ground. Then, return to the pose in which you started and do the move with the other side. Do 3 sets and 15 reps.
For this exercise, stand straight. Your feet should be as the hip width apart and your hands should be placed on your hips. Make a step back with your left leg. Cross it behind and lower the left knee to the floor.
The right knee should be above the right ankle and your torso should be straight. Lower the hips until your right leg is parallel to the floor. Hold this for 2 seconds. Then, return to the start and repeat with the other side. Do 3 sets and 15 reps.
Fire hydrant and leg extension
Start on all 4.Your knees should be hip width apart and your hands below the shoulders. Keep your knee bent on a 90 degree angle. Lift your left leg to the left side and then extend. Pause for 2 seconds and bend it again. Return into the start position and repeat. Do 3 sets and 20 reps.
Barbell step ups
Do this exercise by putting a bench or some chair in front of you. Then, put the right foot in the center of the chair while you’re holding a barbell behind the head.
