JILLIAN MICHAELS: Hey, team. Jillian Michaels here. And I've created a seven-day, seven-minute challenge for Yahoo Life where every single day I'm going to be giving you a seven-minute workout. And it could be a HIIT workout, total body, abs, legs, and even stretching workouts, and meditations. So you are going to feel fantastic after seven days.
Now, day one, our first seven-minute workout is total body. So get ready to bang it out with me.
Let's do two circuits. Let's do modified clapping pushups. Let's go 25 seconds. Let's begin.
These very dynamic, explosive exercises burn a lot of calories while we're doing them, but also a lot of calories after the workout's over.
Keep your tailbone tucked, belly button pulled in tight. Keep your chin off your chest. We're finished.
Here we go, twisting plank. Let's go for 25 seconds. Ready? Begin.
Don't shift your torso position. Bring your knees under and across towards the opposite armpit. Don't allow your knee to drag on the ground. Keep your leg tucked in toward your torso. And finished.
Next we're going to do modified horizontal scissor crunch. Let's go for 25 seconds. Let's get rolling.
Press your lower back into the ground. Just 10 more seconds left. OK, nice work.
Let's go to the next one. Coming up, modified Sumo touchdowns. Let's go for 25 seconds. Begin.
Sumo touchdown is a great move for your obliques. Really try to extend your body to touch your ankles with each hand. Just 10 more seconds left.
Let's move on to the next exercise. Let's do modified alternating surrender lunges. Go for 25 seconds. OK, hit it.
If you need to modify any lunge, just decrease the range of motion. Whenever doing a lunge of any kind, always think about tucking the tailbone and pulling your bellybutton into your spine. And done. Let's move on.
Let's do mountain climbers, no plyo. Go for 25 seconds. Let's begin.
I want you to find a good rhythm that works for you and keep your movements smooth and consistent. Quick, quick, quick. Lock those arms. We got 10 seconds left. Plant those hands directly under the shoulder. Terrific.
Let's move on. Coming up, modified traveling pushups. Let's do 25 seconds. And go.
Look directly down the bridge of your nose at the ground without allowing your chin to drop down to your chest. Keep your chin off your chest. Belly button is drawn in. Super job. Let's move on.
Next, twisting plank. Go, 25 seconds. OK, hit it.
Don't hike your hips up. Think about rotating your hips so that the knee comes under and across. You got 10 seconds left. OK, done, moving on.
Give me modified boat, forearms down. Let's go for 25 seconds. And we're off. We got 10 seconds left. OK, nice work. Let's go to the next one.
Next up, bicycle crunches, one of my favorites. 25 seconds, bang it out. All right, rock and roll.
Keep your chin off your chest. Eyes on the ceiling. Don't pull on your neck. 10 seconds. Rotate your torso so you're bringing your armpit towards your opposite knee, not your elbow. Good.
Next exercise. Let's do modified alternating surrender lunges. Go for 25 seconds. Here we go. Just 10 more seconds left. Super job. Let's move on.
Time for mountain climbers without plyo. OK, I want you to go for 25 seconds. Let's get rolling. The harder you work right now, the faster your body is going to change. Bring your knees into your chest. Lock those arms. OK, nice work.
Great job. You completed day one. Tomorrow we've got a seven-minute HIIT workout. And just remember, you can do anything for seven minutes. All you gotta do is show up and feel amazing when it's done. So congratulations and I'll see you tomorrow for day two.
