MinutesWhat to do in your workout program
15:00-20:00Workout Program TRI–SET #3
Squat with shoulder raise: Stand with feet about shoulder–width apart (or whatever stance is comfortable for you) and hold a 5– to 7–pound dumbbell in each hand at your sides, palms facing hips. Lower into a squat, as you raise arms out to each side to shoulder height. Lower arms as you stand up, and repeat. Do 20 reps.

Step–ups: Stand facing a bench or step that's no higher than knee level. Keep hands on hips or hold a 5-pound dumbbell in each hand at sides. Step right foot up, then left. Lower right foot to the ground then left foot. Do 20 reps, then switch legs (so you step up with the left foot first) and repeat. High–knee jog: Jog in place, trying to lift knees as high as you can, for 45 seconds.
Repeat tri–set #3 once.
20:00-25:00Workout Program TRI–SET #4
Reverse crunch: Lie face up with arms crossed over chest and legs extended over hips. Without using momentum or swinging legs, slowly lift hips several inches, so legs go straight up (not toward head). Lower hips and repeat. Do 10 to 15 reps.

Calf raise: Stand on the edge of a step or bench (hold onto something for balance if necessary). Lift left foot and keep it raised as you drop right heel below level of step and then rise up onto right toes. Lower heel and repeat. Do 20 reps, then switch legs to complete set.

Plank pose: Get in push–up position on forearms, elbows aligned under shoulders, and toes. Tighten your abs so your body is aligned from head to heels and hold the position for 30 seconds.
Repeat tri–set #4 once.
25:00-30:00Jog slowly, decreasing speed to a walk to cool down.
