Doctor Oz: Flat Belly Workout
Everyone would love to have a sexy summer beach body, but it seems like a lot of work. Would you be surprised to learn that trainer Brett Goebel says you can get on the road to success in just five minutes a day? He showed off his moves and even had audience members give them a try.
Flat Belly Exercise: Balanca & Ginga
Do a figure 8 squat, then lunge and rock back and forth. Make it easier by doing shallow lunges, or go harder by picking up speed. Just one minute of this exercise is all you need to get off to a good start.
Flat Belly Exercise: Moving Plank
From your stomach, get into plank position. Move left to right, lifting your knee as you go to either side. Beginners can modify by holding still. For a more advanced move, lift your hand as you switch sides. Add one minute of this to your routine.
Flat Belly Exercise: Push Kick Sit-Up
Start in a Sit Up position. As you do the Sit Up, lift one leg and kick. Then repeat with the opposite leg. Beginners can leave their feet on the floor. The advanced move adds a Waist Twist. This is another one-minute exercise.
Flat Belly Exercise: Sit-Up Mountain Climber
From an arch position, push the legs back and forth. Make it easier by walking the legs through the move. Make it harder by adding a push up to the mix. Do this for one minute.
Flat Belly Exercise: Cardio Boxing
Begin by jumping in place. Continue jumping, moving the right leg in front of you and doing eight jabs with the right hand. Then repeat on the other side. Take it slow to make it easier, or move faster for a more difficult challenge. This is the last minute in your five-minute routine.
Doctor Oz Energy Booster: Cottage Cheese
Need some energy before or after your five minute workout? Here are some healthy snacks featured on teh show. Cottage Cheese is high in protein, but try to find a low sodium variety. It’s also a filling snack, and you can spice it up with lemon pepper or even fresh fruit. Try pairing it with Snow Peas or Carrots to get yourself an easy meal.
Dr Oz: Acola Nut Extract
Just add a couple drops of Acola Nut Extract to your water to give yourself a boost, even as you’re working out. Add lemon for flavor if you like.
Dr Oz: Fruit Kabob for Energy
