If you’re looking to get more out of your workout, reach for some tunes. Research indicates upbeat music can help you get through any workout–and even push harder, too. With the Fitbit Versa and Ionic, you can sync several hours worth of music right on your wrist. Just grab your wireless headphones, and you’re ready to try this calorie-blasting workout from celebrity trainer and Fitbit ambassador Harley Pasternak.
Skater Lunge with Floor Tap: Pretend you’re a velocity skater. Step back with one leg( your right leg for example ), traversing it diagonally behind you( to the left) while swinging your limbs in front to the side, and touch the opposite hand( your left in this case) to the floor.
Squat with Arm Swing: Perform a squatting while simultaneously bringing clasped hands forward in front of your chest as you lower down.
Reverse Lunge with DB Bicep Curl: Hold a light dumbbell in each hand, and as you step back into a lunge with one foot, simultaneously curl the dumbbells as you lower into the lunge.
Lunge with Single Arm DB Shoulder Press: Hold a light dumbbell in each hand and as you step forward into a lunge, simultaneously press the opposite limb overhead, maintaining it simply in front of your ear.
Jump Squat: Lower into a squatting and then jump up. Control your landing and slowly lower into the next squatting before jumping again.
Bicycle Crunch: Only like the classic: Clasp hands behind your head maintaining your elbows out to the sides, and diagonally crunch one elbow to the opposite knee while extending the other leg.
Push-Up: Maintaining your back flat and abs pulled in toward your spine, and your hands on the floor below your shoulders, lower toward the floor and push back to start. If this is too difficult, rest your knees on the floor while performing push-ups.
Note: Substitute cans of soup or filled water bottles for dumbbells if you don’t have them handy.
