The Talk Takeaway: Fitness
Tony Horton is the fitness guru behind the popular P90X fitness system and the 10 Minute Trainer Workout, and he was on The Talk to share how you can get your fitness routine in gear this spring.
The Talk: Tony Horton 10 Minute Trainer Workout
The new 10 Minute Trainer can help you get results in just 10 minutes a day, with results as quickly as 10 days into the program. The idea is to create a concentrated version of P90X-style moves.
The Talk: Tony Horton Rocking Iso Lunge
Get into a lunge position, placing a resistance band under your front foot. Start with your arms by your shoulders. Rock back and forth, move up and down, and incorporate a press move using the resistance band.
The Talk: Tony Horton Pendulum
Choose your dominant leg, the one you think has the best balance. Plant that foot and lean forward, bringing the other leg off the floor behind you. The idea is to practice your balance and work the core. Engage the arms by moving them out to the side and then above your head.
The Talk: Band Crunch Exercise
Grab that resistance band again for the next exercise. Wrap the band around both of your feet and bring the handles in front of you. This helps you cheat on your crunches by letting you lean backward and engage the lower back.
The Talk: Oblique Hop Squats
For the Oblique Hop Squats, make a wide stance and bring your hands up about level with your head. Hop forward three steps, move side to side, and then hop back. It gets the core, the legs, and the heart rate in shape.
The Talk: Band Hip Raise
Lay on your back with one leg straight up in the air. “Drive your heel and pelvis up,” he instructed, getting your back off the ground.
The Talk: Bella Twist
Last up was a move that can give you a great waistline. Start doing the twist dance move, and keep going lower and lower, “into the basement,” according to Tony Horton. The ladies all seemed to get into this one.
