  • Exercise Ring Exercises

    Wall squats
    Stand with your back against a wall, slide down until your legs are bent as close to 90 degrees as you can manage. Squeeze the ring between your knees and hold for 30 seconds. Next time, see if you can hold it for longer! Wall squats alone are great for overall leg strength, but with the ring, you're also working hard on your inner thighs and quadriceps.

  • Exercise Ring Exercises

    Leg raises
    Lie on your side on the floor, with the ring around your ankles. Lift your top leg against the ring. Do two sets of eight, then switch sides to work the other leg. This gives your hips and legs a tougher workout than traditional leg raises.

  • Exercise Ring Exercises

    Sit-ups
    Lie on your back on the floor with your knees bent. Hold the ring straight above you, do a sit up, so the ring is now out in front of you. Turn to the left, then the right, then back to the front before going back down to the starting position. The ring helps you focus on using your abs to lift you up, and you're working your obliques (side abdominal muscles) and arms, too. Start with 25 and build from there.

  • Gym Band Exercises

    Standing row
    Stand up straight, with your feet shoulder width apart and knees slightly bent. Face the door where you've hooked the bands. Hold the handles so they're vertical, and make sure the bands are just a little slack. Pull them straight towards you until your hands reach your chest. Hold for two seconds, then slowly bring your hands forward again. Do two sets of eight. This works your back.

  • Gym Band Exercises

    High bicep curls
    Stand the same way, but turn your hands so your palms are up while you're holding the bands. Hold your arms straight out in front of you, then curl your forearms until your fists meet your shoulders. Hold for two seconds, then slowly bring your arms back to the straight position. Do two sets of eight. This works your biceps, which'll help you pick up even those kids who are really too big to be picked up.

  • Gym Band Exercises

    Chest press
    Turn around so your back is to the door. Hold the bands so the handles are vertical again, but begin with your arms spread out to your sides, so your hands are level with your shoulders. Slowly bring your hands together like you're going to clap, hold for two seconds, then slowly return them to the start position. This works your shoulders and chest muscles, which will help your breasts look firmer.
