Upper Body - Part 1
What you'll need: a mat or carpet, a step or low bench, two sturdy chairs of the same height, a three- to five-pound dumbbell, and a dowel
Minute 1: Step-Ups on a Bench (cardio)
Stand facing a bench or step. Quickly step up with your right foot, then your left, then step down with the right foot, followed by the left. Repeat, moving comfortably as fast as you can. After 30 seconds, switch the lead leg.
Minute 2: Wall Push-Ups (toning, pictured)
Stand facing a wall, slightly more than arm’s length away. Lean forward, and place hands on wall so arms are parallel to floor, shoulder-width apart. Bend elbows, and bring chest forward until your forehead nearly touches the wall. Hover for a count of three, then slowly return to start.
