Hey, I’m Jake of Body by Jake and wow, we’ve got an Energizer for you today. It’s called a Towel Toner with a side of cardio and here to help me is Christy. Here we go.
We’re going to get started and I’ll tell you what, we’re using a towel. That’s all we need for this little three minute workout. And we’re going to start with our chest press. So Christy is going to turn to the side, and I put the towel in front under her arms like so.
You can do this with your partner, or a friend, a roommate. Knees are bent slightly, right Christy? Elbows out. We’re going to push straight out now, just like you would do in a chest press with weights on a bench. We’re using your best friend and doing some resistance training!
Nice and easy does it. One and two, watch out! Nice and smooth! Christy’s moving, three, working the arms, working the chest. Her knees are bent slightly, good ! Squeeze that buttisimo as tight as you can.
Nice and easy does it. Push it right out, bring it in. Push it right out. Well done. That was great. Knees are bent, squeeze that buttisimo as tight as you can. Working the chest and arms, nice and easy. Here we go, two more times. One and two. Great exercise!
Now, hands straight up. We’re going to work the triceps – watch this! Elbows in close. We’re going to drop the arm down and bring it right back up. Drop it down, a great exercise for the back of the arm , the old tri’s (triceps).
Now remember, the partner, which is me right now, is applying resistance. Nice and easy. You’re going to add a little weight or lighten it up a little bit. Try to get about 10-12 reps every exercise.
Here we go. Three and four. Knees are bent, good! Five, think good positive thoughts. Six and seven. Here we go. Christy come on! And eight, nine, two more times! Two more times, one and great.
Now turn it around. We’re going to do a bicep curl now, bicep curl. Here we go Christy, smile and have a ball! Bring it up and go, one, come up a little bit straighter, straight up. There you go. That’s it stand up, three and four.
Look at the biceps working! Five – don’t need any dumbbells in this exercise, don’t need any kind of soup cans! You got me, seven. I know you’re thinking Christy! Eight, come on! Nine, ten. Two more times. One and two!
Now we’re going to the back. Simple. Ready? Beady bend over, right? There you go. But over the hips, I’m going to bring it out and in. Nice and easy does it. Great exercise for the back, great exercise for the back. Keep it going, keep it going, nice and easy. Three and four. Breathing normally, stomach tight, good! Thinking good, positive thoughts. Christy is smiling. I’m here too,
I’m telling you right now. She’s smiling…eight, nine and ten. Two more times – one and two.
Now we get down for our Jake Run. Here we go, and we’ll do 10 reps and go! One, two, three…back flat… four, five six, seven, eight, nine and perfecto. That’s the way you do it.
That’s the way you do it. How about a towel and having some fun with your towel toner.
Don’t quit. Have a great day.
