1 - SQUATS
Squats are the queens of toning. If you want to strengthen your glutes and legs you must introduce them in your weekly routine.

Follow the advice of one of our favorite youtubers, Patry Jordan. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=80dKqPruEMo
2 - FLEXIONS
Remember that if you are a beginner you can support your knees with the intention of keeping your back straight, your abdomen contracted and raise your weight with your arms.
3 - LUNGES
One of the most toning exercises for the inner legs and gluteus. Try to keep your back straight and maintain the correct posture when going up and down. A little trick: do not pull your knee forward, try to keep your balance and go up quickly. You will see how much effort your muscles make.
- ISOMETRIC CRUNCHES
To tighten the abdomen you must be consistent with this exercise at least 3 times a week. Remember to tighten the belly and lower the buttocks so as not to load the back. You will notice how the abdominal fat disappears noticeably in a few weeks.
- GLUTEAL PRESSURE AND KICKS

Practice HIT (High Intensity Internal Training)
This type of training does not last more than 25-30 minutes. It consists of performing series of exercises with high intensity intervals. Try to maintain a semi-accelerated pace in the rest times between sets. And then speed up again... and so on until the workout is complete. This will allow you to burn three times as many calories as training at a steady pace.
To perform HIT requires maximum effort during a very short period of time, you have to push your muscles to the limit. Remember that change comes when we get out of our comfort zone, you have to sweat! If you want to achieve visible results in less time you must speed up your metabolism.
Remember that to stay in shape a good diet is very important, as it has a 70% influence on your results, compared to exercise which corresponds to the remaining 30%. Maintain a balanced diet with all the macronutrients (carbohydrates, proteins and fats) and micronutrients (vegetables and minerals) necessary for a healthy life. But, above all, do not starve yourself, fasting for many hours is counterproductive and makes your body react with the well-known rebound effect. Your body is intelligent, learn to listen to it.
Feel good inside and out by living a healthy lifestyle. Keep in mind that success is in the mind-body balance and, above all, don't be obsessed with results and be ready to see them!
