Brooke Burke-Charvet's One-Minute Workout
Get great abs fast
Dancing with the Stars
co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet has a few favorite moves from her latest Brooke Burke Body DVDs, 30-Day Slim Down and Sexy Abs. These three exercises will tone your abs, legs, and butt—and they're so quick you can knock them out during a DWTS commercial break.
"Do each in 30-second to 1-minute 'pods,'" Burke-Charvet advises. "Tackling a whole minute is hard every time. And when you get that burn, do 10 more seconds. That's when your body starts changing."
Break out your pom-poms and favorite team jersey for this video. The Cheerleader is a workout move that builds lower body strength and stamina. For added difficulty and muscle toning, increase the pace or hold a 3-pound dumbbell in each hand. See the next workout moveSee the full Metabolism-Boosting Workout
Lie with knees bent, arms at side, palms down. Tighten glutes and core; raise hips to form a straight line from shoulders to knees (A). Bend right leg toward chest (B); straighten leg and point foot (C); bend leg and return to start. Repeat, alternating sides, for 1 minute.
Kneel, place left hand lightly on back of head, right hand on floor to side. Lift left leg 2 inches off floor (A). Crunch to left while raising left leg, so body forms a straight line from hip to toe (B). Lower leg and repeat for 1 minute; switch sides and repeat.
