Fit In A Minute


The holidays always seem to fly by. Before you know it, the vacation and family time is long gone, and it’s back to the usual routine. So in the whirlwind of celebrating, shopping and traveling, you may not have the time and energy for long grueling workouts. But you can keep your spirits up and blood flowing by taking short breaks to do simple compound moves like this lunge with a bicep curl. With the glute-firming, arm-toning, calorie-burning benefits of this quick move, who says you can’t be fit in one minute?


  1. Step out to the right side, with a wide stance. Bend the right leg and lower your hips down as you keep the left leg straight out to the side, feeling a slight stretch in the left inner thigh.
  2. Pressing off the right foot, keeping your core engaged, push yourself back up to standing.
  3. As you return to standing, curl the weights up toward your shoulders, squeezing the muscles on the front of the arms for a bicep curl.
