Celebrity fitness power couple Chris and Heidi Powell show us some basic boot camp moves to do at home in Yahoo Life’s fitness series, “Take 5.” This five-minute workout routine is designed for beginners and is a great way to get your heart pumping. “This type of boot camp workout is beneficial for so many reasons but most of all because it only takes you five minutes, anybody can do it and it’s a total body workout,” says Heidi.
The transformation specialists, who have created their own “Transform” weight loss program, demonstrate five moves as part of the workout. You start out with three reps of each and then increase by three until you’ve reached five minutes. “Don’t feel like you need to rush through this workout at all,” says Chris. “Focus on your form and you’re going to get everything you need out of this workout.”
The boot camp moves include: Elevated push-ups, sofa squats, seated jackknives, jumping jacks and modified burpees. “Starting out we recommend just two times in one week but as you become more advanced it’s ok to increase it to three or even four times a week and you’re going to see some incredible results.”
