Got time to watch TV? Then you have time to tighten and tone with our eight easy flab-fighting moves.
Targets: Triceps and quads
- Stand with feet hip-width apart with your back to couch and place both palms on edge of cushion or armrest, fingers facing forward.
- Keeping arms straight and elbows close by sides, bend knees about 90 degrees and then lift left foot a few inches off floor, knee bent, to get into start position.
- Flexing left foot, bend elbows behind you 90 degrees and simultaneously extend left leg so that it's parallel to floor.
- Straighten arms and bend left knee to return to start.
- Do 15 reps.
- Switch sides and repeat.
Trainer's Tip: "Think of your heel as added resistance," Sant'Angelo says. "The greater you flex your foot, the more you'll work your quads."
