Time To Workout With Me 

Warm Up – 2 Minutes


Lie down on you back with you legs straight up in the air. Now reach you toes by touching with you arms using you abdominal muscles to lift you body off the floor.


Lie flat on the floor facing down. Take you fingers to you temple keeping you face down. Lift you torso off the floor as high as possible squeezing the glutes at the same time. Return to start position and repeat.


Lie down on you back then with you feet to floor and knees in the air bring you feet as close to you butt as possible. Palms facing down and lift you torso so that you shoulders are off the floor. Reach right arm to right heel and then swap to the other side alternating each time.


Sit on the floor legs out straight with torso at 90 degrees sitting up straight. Place you hands on the floor slightly wider than shoulder width apart with palms facing towards you legs. Then you want to sit on you seat bones bringing you knees to chest and then push you legs away out straight about 2 inches off the floor.


Lie you back down on the floor with legs and arms stretched long. Then using you core muscles, you want to bring you upper body and you legs into a V position. Control this movement both up and down to really work you abdominal s.


Lying back down onto the floor with legs outstretched. Palms by you side facing down onto the floor. Then come to starting position which is legs up in the air and the movement is about lowering controlled to the floor or as far as possible and then returning up to the start. Keep back firmly on the floor, slight lift in the pelvis and engage you stomach muscles.


Sit on the floor with you knees slightly bent in front of you and sitting back into you seat bones. Straighten you arms in front of you with fingers clasped in front of you body. Slowly twist you body to the right and then to the left with a good controlled movement, working through you obliques.


Position on all fours ensuring that knees are under hips and you palms are under you shoulders. Then stretch you right arm forward and left leg backwards extend to reach as far forward as possible. Then alternate to the other side left arm and right leg. Your aim is to lengthen as far forward and back as possible.


Start in a full upright press-up position. Wrists directly under shoulders and body straight through to you toes where you will be slightly pushing you heels to the floor. Core stays strong and the rest of you body is still. Hold this position up to 1 minute.

SIDE PLANK (Left Side & Right Side)Side Plank

Turn onto you side and lift you body off the floor pushing you hips nice and high whilst stacking you feet. Again, core is engaged and so are you glutes, so you are strong from head to toe with you body long. Hold for 30 seconds then change sides. Option to keep knees down and come onto elbows.

So why not take this challenge for the next 7 Days to see how well you to. Not one crunch in sight either.

Time is NO Excuse as this workout is only 10 Minutes

V Sit Ups & Bicycle Crunch

1 Minute Rest

Repeat 2 to 3 times

Bicycle Crunch – Target Oblique Muscles

Lie on you back on the floor with you feet on the floor. Place you hands by you ears feeling an opening of the chest. Push you flexed right foot away from you so that you leg straightens in front of you with knees soft. At the same time you left leg comes into you chest and you want to take you right shoulder across to that knee. During this action you want to feel you core muscles and especially the obliques of the crunched side as you lift you shoulders off the floor to come across. Keep alternating legs and go as fast as you can with good technique. (The lower the legs the harder the exercise but look after you back)

Plank – Core Strength & Stabilisation

Start by lying face down and then come up onto you forearms placing them directly under you shoulder. Legs outstretched behind you curling you toes under and lifting through you abdominal s. All you want to to is hold this pose for as long as you can by trying to stay relaxed and breath. Key to this pose is to draw you shoulders away from you ears pushing into the forearms. At the same time push you heels to the floor squeezing you glutes. This pose activates all you strong postural muscles including you deep abdominal s.

V – Sit Ups

Start lying on you back, take you arms overhead linking thumbs together. Legs start from an outstretched position with knees and ankles together. Your, aim is to lift shoulders off the floor as you bring you arms to meet you legs which are simultaneously rising to meet you fingertips. Do not worry if you cannot get you shoulders off initially or you legs to not come all the way down to the floor. Over time and as you get stronger this will change. (Please look after you back)

Repeat Plank (hold as long as you can and build up through the week).

Aim to complete 1 Minute

      Hello and thank you for your comment,

      What I have learnt over time is that it is more important to do something that enables us to mentally get us through. If we can achieve a greater result in a shorter period of time I have found that more people are likely to do it.

      Good luck

    Thanks a lot for sharing this information. I never get tired of learning about  activities and exercises to do in order to stay fit and am pretty sure my mom will love this because despite her efforts to shed the dead weight it still clings to her, probably because she hasn’t been working out regularly.

    Am pretty sure this 10 min workout a day will prove effective.
