You want to get back in shape, but a busy lifestyle leaves you without time and opportunity? This short routine just might be the one to start you on your fitness journey. With only 3 minutes per day you can achieve great results. Kayla Itsines is a popular trainer with more than 4 million followers on Instagram. The Australian instructor came up with a training regime that requires just 3 minutes per day while guaranteeing a good stretching and a body with shaped buttocks, slender arms and tight abs.
1. Double Pulse Squats
Stand with the feet spread further than shoulder width apart and the toes pointing outwardly. Start bending at both the hips and knees until the upper legs are parallel with the floor. Now extend the legs slightly before returning to a full squat. Do this move 2 times for a double squat. When done, push through the heels to return to the starting position. Repeat 10 times.
Duck with your hands on the floor right in front of your feet. Now kick your feet backwards, extending our legs behind you and resting on the ball of your feet. From there, jumping your feet inward, return to the crouching position before propelling your body upwards in a single energetic movement with your arms above your head. Repeat the exercise 10 times.
Set the stopwatch to 3 minutes and do this short routine daily. Take a look at the video to see how the trainer Kayla does these exercises herself:
