*For glutes, abdominals and back
- Repetition: one minute with five second rest between each one.
- Stand with feet slightly wider than hip width apart, knees and toes turned out about 45 degrees (this is called the ballet-inspired deep plié squat).
- Brace your back and core and start jabbing across the body, alternating each arm.
- Punch powerfully from the shoulder joint and draw the elbow back in, tight and fast to your rib cage.
- This works the leg muscles whilst maintaining the ballet position but also focuses on the arms and top half core muscles at the same time.
- Cardio exercise also helps deliver a surge of blood and nutrients around the body, helping to feed your complexion resulting in glowing skin.
