Dramatic body changes require only five resistance exercises plus cardio every session (and one full day off per week). You dont need to spend your life in the gym, but you do need to challenge yourself! Dedication and a commitment to working through the tough parts will help you build your dream body. Dont argue with yourself just do it!
ALTERNATING FLY + CRUNCH
Lie with your head, neck and shoulders on a body ball. Both feet should be planted firmly on the ground with legs at a 90 degree angle, knees positioned over the ankles. Bridge your torso so its raises up and parallel to the floor. Raise the dumbbells over your chest with your arms extended towards the ceiling, palms facing each other. Inhale, open your chest and slowly lower the weights in a semi-circular arc out to the sides of your chest. Do not lower your arms farther than parallel to the floor. Exhale and raise the weight, again in an arc, back up to start position and perform a crunch with the weights above your chest. Lower back to the start and repeat.
