Light up your metabolism and burn a ton of calories with this incredible, fat-torching workout from celebrity fitness expert Jay Cardiello and TRX. With these five simple moves you can get in great shape virtually anywhere. The best part? This workout only lasts 15 minutes, so get ready to give it your all.
Perform each exercise for 60 seconds, resting for 30 seconds while you transition to the next movement. When you finish all five exercises start run through the sequence one more time for a 15-minute workout. For the first round perform the single-leg exercises on your right side, then switch to the left for the second.
TRX Atomic Pushups
Start in a pushup position with your feet in the foot cradles of the Suspension Trainer, directly under the anchor point, and your hands under your shoulders. Brace your core and perform a pushup. When you reach the top of the push up, pause for a moment and perform a TRX crunch by drawing your knees toward your chest and pikeing your hips up slightly. Pause for a moment at the top, then lower your hips back down and straighten your legs to return to the start position.
TRX Suspended Lunges
Start standing on one leg facing away from the anchor point with one foot suspended in both foot cradles. Brace your core and focus on standing up straight as though you are performing a single-leg plank while standing up. Drop your hips down and back into a deep lunge. Keep the shin of your working leg vertical and your chest up. Stop at the bottom when working knee is at 90 degrees. Drive through your front leg to return to the top of your lunge. Engage your core and keep your chest and head up throughout the entire movement.
With the Suspension Trainer at mid calf place one foot in both foot cradles.
Drive your suspended leg back, lower your hips until back knee is two inches from ground. Place your hands on the ground and hop your grounded leg straight back to a plank position. Perform a pushup then hop your grounded leg forward and explode up to a jump.
Stand facing the TRX Suspension Trainer holding the handles with both hands in front of you and your feet together. Jump to your right side and land on your right foot. Control your momentum by letting your knee bend as you land. Hop rapidly from side to side.
TRX Jump Squats
Adjust the TRX Suspension Trainer to mid length. Stand facing the TRX with your feet hip width apart. Position your elbows under your shoulders and lower your hips down and back, keeping your weight in your heels. Squeeze your glutes and drive your hips up to explode and jump at the top of your squat. Use the TRX straps to help you decelerate and land as softly as possible. Keep your chest lifted throughout the movement.
