Got time to watch TV? Then you have time to tighten and tone with our eight easy flab-fighting moves.
Thigh-Frying Wood Chop
Targets: Shoulders, abs, obliques, butt, and legs
- Tie one end of band to couch leg and hold other end with both hands. Stand with feet hip-width apart so that couch is a few feet to your right and you feel resistance in the band, hands by right hip.
- Lower into squat, knees bent about 90 degrees, then pull band diagonally up with arms extended from right hip to above left shoulder. Maintain squat as you rotate torso.
- Do 15 reps.
- Switch sides, with couch on your left, and repeat.
Trainer's Tip: Squeeze a towel between your knees during this move to add inner-thigh toning.
