TTT: Go-To Workout Moves

I’m sure I’m not the only one who has three go-to moves that give me the results I want, right? Right. So here are my tried and true go-to workout moves.

Plank. You can always count on this move to flatten and strengthen your tummy quickly. Not only will you shape up your stomach, but you’ll also strengthen your arms, back and glutes. This is one of the tough ones, but really gets the job done.

Squats/Lunges. I know it’s cheating to combine two, but they really are the best leg toners. Running aside, squats are what saved my butt from it’s terrible desk job fate. Plus, combining these targets your quads, glutes, hamstrings, and even calves, if you add variation to your motion. These suck, suck, suck, but pain means results!

Push Ups. Of course I do these with my knees down, but honestly, what girl with hyper extended joints can actually do a full one? (Rhetorical.) Do them before you head out on your sleeveless date and show the world what you’re made of.

What are your g0-to exercises?
