Rev Up Your Metabolism With These 4 Easy Moves

September 26, 2015 2 min read

Boosting your metabolism is great for weight loss. And there are so many ways, from what you eat to what you do that can help speed it up. But it doesn't have to be drastic! Brought to you by trainer Larysa DiDio, this 10-minute routine boosts calorie burn for hours after you've finished, all while toning every zone of your body. Perform each move for 45 seconds, and rest for 30 seconds between each. The entire circuit should be repeated twice. 1. Chair Squat Into Biceps Curl Stand in front of a chair with both toes facing forward, feet hip-distance apart, a dumbbell in each hand. Shift your weight into your heels and squat until your butt taps the chair, then stand and curl both weights toward your shoulders. Expert tip: Don't forget to squeeze your butt as you stand. 2. Knee Lifts With Alternate Arm Raises Stand holding a weight in each hand at shoulder height. Raise right knee to chest and left arm overhead, then switch to the other side. Continue alternating opposite arm and opposite leg. Expert tip: Keep your belly engaged and your chest lifted. 3. Step Outs Stand with your feet together, knees slightly bent, hands on hips with a dumbbell in each hand. Bend left knee and extend right leg behind you. Quickly step right foot back to meet left, then immediately extend left leg behind you. Continue alternating legs. Expert tip: Squeeze through your butt as you extend your leg and keep your abs engaged. 4. Side-To-Side Lunge With A Press Stand in front of a chair with legs out wide, toes facing out and heels in, hands resting lightly on the back of a chair. Bend your right knee and lunge to the right, placing your weight into your right heel. Straighten your right leg, and come back to center and raise arms overhead. Repeat on the other side. Continue alternating sides. Expert tip: Move quickly to increase your heart rate, but don't sacrifice your form. Are you ready to try these four moves yourself? Source: Prevention
