|Welcome to the newest Microwave Fitness blog article. Celebrity trainer Jackie Warner, star of Bravo's hit show Workout and owner of Sky Sport Spa in Beverly Hills, helps her clients achieve maximum results in minimum time. My hope for you is to help you find better ways to use those spare minutes in your busy day to look & feel better.|
Here's how it works.
While you are microwaving your lunch, instead of being bored, focus on fitness.
Most lunches take from 2 to 7 minutes to heat up. If you have a 2 minute lunch, pick your favorite microwave fitness workout. If you have a 5-7 minute lunch, you can do 2 or 3 workouts! They are quick, fun & easy and each one focuses on a different muscle group.
Microwave Fitness exercises will improve your muscle tone and circulation, improve your energy level, help your concentration, and help you relax from your day's stress. You won't work up a sweat, so you won't need a shower afterwards. You'll just feel better and you'll soon notice you look better too.
Stand normally, with your feet together. Hold your arms down at your side to start. If you find you need a little help with your balance, gently rest one hand against a wall or table. Try not to put your weight on the hand, just use it to steady you.
Stand on your left leg and raise your right heel up until it touches your bottom. Watching the timer on the microwave, hold for about 5 seconds to start. Gradually work your way up to 30 seconds Gently lower your foot to the ground. Repeat on the other side.
