This simple workout…

can really make a difference.

ass abs and arms

It’s super quick so you can fit it in every day, doesn’t require any equipment, and with some good music playing it’s really fun.

Totally into “I Like Me Better” by Lauv and “Never Be the Same” by Camila Cabello.  Actually pretty much obsessed with all of her music right now…she is a total badass.

So what does this workout involve?

Squats, crunches, and push-ups.

Knock out 100 air squats, 50 crunches and 25 push-ups.

Boom!  Done.

I share simple workout ideas over on Instagram @happyhealthyandhot_elizabeth every Monday.  This one got such a great response that I wanted to share it here on the website.

Air squats are great for toning your butt and thighs and increasing flexibility.  I love knocking them out whenever I have an extra minute…like waiting for coffee to brew.

Start with feet a little wider than hip width, toes turned slightly outward.  Slowly bend your knees while pushing butt and hips out and down, like an exaggerated version of sitting down into a chair.  Goal is to get your thighs parallel to the ground.  Then gradually straighten legs to come back up.

Crunches are simple to perform and get results.  While there are so many different things you can do for your abs (love side planks too) crunches have always been part of my regular routine.

Lay flat on your back, knees bent.  Hands should be near temples, palms out, and elbows bent at about a 30 to 45 degree angle.  While exhaling, bring shoulder blades off the floor until you feel pressure in your abs.  Hold for a second or two, then slowly release.  Repeat when head and shoulders are about to touch the ground.

Push-ups are amazing for your upper body and your core.  They’re simple but not easy.  To start, get in plank position.  Hands should be just slightly wider than shoulder width apart.  Feet should be in a comfortable position for you…typically a little wider apart gives a more stable pushup.

The goal is for your body to form a straight line from your head to your feet.  Once you are in this position, lower yourself until your elbows are at a 90 degree angle or smaller.  Then slowly push back up.  That’s it!  Doesn’t matter if you can’t do 25 at once…do what you can, take a break, and do a few more.

For more simple workouts that you can do at home, follow me on Instagram @happyhealthyandhot_elizabeth.  I post them every Monday.

Can this quick workout help you feel happy, healthy and hot?  Hell yeah!

You’ll be happy doing a workout that is so easy and fun, especially if you’re listening to good music.  And we all know that moving your body is healthy.  Doing simple bodyweight moves like this, combined with eating well, can give you more muscle definition…and that’s very hot!
