Team Up and Slim Down

Getting Fit With Friends

No access to a pro? You can still give small-group training a go with this do-anywhere DIY routine.

You'll need: A pair of 5- to 8-pound dumbbells, a few fit-minded friends and a stopwatch

What to do: Arrange six stations. Begin as a team with a five-minute warm-up. Jog, do jumping jacks—anything to get your heart pumping. Then split up at different stations. Do the indicated exercise, moving to the next after 30 seconds; have one teammate man the clock. Complete each of the six stations a total of three times and you're done. High-fiving is highly encouraged! :-)

Heel Click

Stand with feet hip-width apart, arms down. Bend knees and jump as high as you can, clicking heels together. Land in start position, knees soft. Repeat for 30 seconds.

  • works abs, butt, thighs
In and Out

Start in a deep plié squat, toes turned out. Lower left knee to ground (as shown), then right knee, coming into a kneeling position. Reverse to return to a plié squat. Continue for 30 seconds.

  • works butt, thighs
Crab Grab

Start in tabletop: facing up, hands under shoulders, fingers forward, hips lifted with knees bent. Hold pose as you extend right leg and reach left arm to meet right foot (as shown). Return to tabletop. Repeat with opposite arm and leg. Continue alternating sides for 30 seconds.

  • works shoulders, triceps, back, abs, obliques, butt, thighs
Ab Throwdown

Lie face-up with feet lifted, knees bent 90 degrees, a weight in each hand, arms extended toward sky, palms facing in, head lifted. Lower head to ground and bend elbows, bringing weights to ears as you extend legs at a 45-degree angle. Return to start. Repeat for 30 seconds.

  • works abs, shoulders, triceps, hips
Cat-Dog Row

Start on all fours, knees under hips, hands under shoulders, a weight in each hand. Drop chin to chest, tucking pelvis under and rounding back like a cat. Lift chin, arching back, then draw weight in right hand to rib cage. Return to start. Repeat on opposite side. Continue alternating sides for 30 seconds.

  • works back
Balancing Act

Stand on left leg and raise right leg, knee bent and thigh parallel to ground. Hold a weight in each hand, elbows bent and raised to chest level, palms in. Balance, then stack forearms in front of chest, right on top. Return to start. Repeat on opposite leg, reversing position of arms. Continue alternating sides for 30 seconds.

  • works shoulders, arms, abs, butt, thighs
Cheers,

Eve :-)
