10 workout moves to do before breakfast

Step your right foot back into a reverse lunge and bend both knees to 90 degrees. Engage core and push off your back foot, driving your right knee up towards the chest as you jump straight up. Step straight back into reverse lunge. Do 30 seconds on each side for a duration of 1 minute and 30 seconds.

Glutes, Thighs, Hip Flexors and Core

Start in an elevated plank position with feet together. Keeping hips low and abs tight, hop feet out and in like a jumping jack. If you need a break, hold your plank or try some pushups. Repeat for 1 minute and 30 seconds.

Chest, Shoulders, Core and Abductors

Sitting on a mat or floor, rock back off sits bones, lift legs up to 90 degree position, find balance and place hands behind head. Pull right knee in and extend right leg out while rotating torso toward the left knee and punch with the right arm. Switch to other side to complete the rep. Repeat for 1 minute and 30 seconds.

Obliques, Deltoids, Quads and Lower Back

Start in a squat position, making sure you have tension on the bands. Press off both feet and jump, sending arms out into a high V and extending the legs out wide, creating a star shape with your body. Do as many as you can; if you start to get fatigued move to traditional squats. Don't quit! Repeat for 1 minute and 30 seconds.

Glutes, Quads, Hamstrings, Inner Thighs and Calves

Start with right foot crossed behind left, so inner thighs touch. Bend knees to a curtsy position, keeping upper body in straight, upright position. Then step out to the right into a side lunge, send hips back but keep chest lifted. Do 30 seconds on each side for duration of 1 minute and 30 seconds.

Glutes, Abductors, Inner Thighs and Hamstrings

Start in a lunge position with right foot back and elevated on small box or step. Bend knees down to a 90/90 position. Take 2 counts up and 2 counts down, make sure torso stays upright with core engaged. Do 30 seconds on one side then switch.  Repeat for duration of 1 minute and 30 seconds.

Glutes, Quads, Hip Flexors and Core

Start in plank position and pull right knee up toward right elbow. Then extend right leg back to a high-diagonal and squeeze gluts. Do 30 seconds on each side. Repeat for duration of 1 minute and 30 seconds.

Chest, Back, Arms, Glutes and Core

Lying on back with left knee bent and right leg straight. Extend both arms up over head, keeping lower back pressed down to the floor. Draw navel in to engage core and raise right leg up to a 45 degree angle, while lifting lower body up as you extend finger tips toward toes at the top of the V shape. Do 15 reps. Switch and repeat for duration of 1 minute and 30 seconds.

Entire Abdominal Wall and Back

Standing on left leg, place right foot up on small box or step. Step up onto the box and drive left knee up toward chest, abs tight. Do 30 seconds on each side. Repeat for duration of 1 minute and 30 seconds.

Glutes, Quads, and Calves

Start in plank position and alternate drawing right and left knees up towards chest, like you are running. Keep hips down and try not to bounce. Climb for 20 seconds, do 10 seconds of pushups and repeat to complete the minute and 30 second set.
