Moves you can try at home (Book excerpt):
- Speed skating drills: Speed skating drills are great for toning the outer and inner thighs and legs muscles overall. And great for anyone who plays, or is interested in tennis and hockey.
How-to: Stand with your hips and knees bent and your hands on your hips. Sidestep to the right, and as soon as you've planted that foot, bring the other leg over as well, planting that foot behind the lead foot. Continue in this fashion for 10 steps before reversing the move and doing the same number of steps in the other direction.
- Mountain Climbers: great for leg toning and good for those interested in running and football.
How-to: Assume the standard push-up position. Bring your left knee toward your chest on the same side, and without hesitation, bring your right leg forward while extending your left leg back. Continue in alternating fashion, "running" like a sprinter on the floor.
- Rumba Cuban Breaks: great for a toning the midsection. they also work the back, arms and legs. How-to: Lie faceup on an exercise ball with your knees bent 90 degrees and your feet planted on the floor. Raise your arms above you and clasp your hands. Rotate your torso to the right, until your arms are parallel with the floor. Raise your arms back to the center, and then lower your arms to the other side. Continue in this windmill fashion until you've gone back and forth 20 times.
