Best Pinterest Exercises

Next time you catch yourself on Pinterest during free time when you should be working out instead (guilty as charged), stop pinning pictures of adorable puppies and the best hairstyles, and check out these great workouts brought to you by fellow pinners. Start with this pin on “100 Reasons You Should Work Out Today” to get yourself motivated. Then turn up the volume on your new Pinterest playlist and get started!

Abs
Abs are the core part of every workout (pun intended). Grab your exercise ball and put your feet together on top of the ball to start with the “hundreds,” a Pilates exercise in which you use your abs to bring your back off the ground in a curved position. Hold this position. To target lower abs, hold the same position with your legs outstretched on the floor instead of on the ball.

Butt
To tone your glutes, get into position with your knees and forearms on the floor. Wrap the resistance band around the bottom of your feet and hold the handles in front of you on the floor. Lift and lengthen your right leg straight back so that your body makes one straight line. Lower your right leg and do the same with the left.

Legs
Stand up straight with a chair behind you. Bend your right knee back and place the top of your right foot on the seat of the chair. Then bend your left knee to lower yourself into a lunge. Stay in this position to do lunges, and then repeat with your left leg on the chair behind you.

Arms
Use this pin diagram to work on sculpting your arms. It has four different arm exercises that will “zap arm-jiggle.” Do these three times a week, and you’ll notice improvement in no time!

Once you’ve mastered each of those, try these full-body workouts!
