Stripping off for some raunchy bedroom business can be daunting.
Especially if your lover is brand-spanking new or your bod just ain’t what it used to be.
Delectable lingerie, dim lighting and a good swig of any type of alcohol can help – as will a little regular sweat session.
You don’t need a gym membership or fancy crop tops – just move through these five classic moves 2-3 times a week in your lounge room.
It will only take you about 30 minutes. We promise. And you need very little, if any, equipment. Let’s get naked ready …
The Workout: Do 20 reps of each move X 3. Do all five moves before starting the next round. Give yourself 30 seconds rest between each round.
1. Luscious Lunge
Stand with feet shoulder-width apart then take a long stride forward, keeping the width between your feet. Raise your back heel off the ground. Keep your chest upright and drop your back knee directly down to a point just off the ground. Keep your weight on your front heel. Raise and repeat without stopping at the top of the movement. (20 reps each leg)
TARGET: Bum and upper thigh in back leg
2. Sexy Sumo Deadlift High Pull
Hold a barbell with both hands in front of your body (Or use a Dumbbell; Kettlebell or Medicine Ball or pop a stretch band under your feet and pull it upwards). Stand with feet wide with toes turned out like a ballerina. Look forward and lower the weight down keeping your spine long throughout. Lower the weight almost to the ground, pause at the bottom of the movement then rise upright again pushing hips through and squeezing glutes as you reach the top. Once standing, perform an upright row drawing elbows high towards your ears.
TARGET: a sexy back
3. Corset crusher
Get down on the ground like you’re about to do a push-up. Brace your core then raise your right hand and twist your torso. Your chest will face out to the right with your right arm pointing up in the air. Sweep your right hand back to the ground and control your hips from twisting as your hand lands. (20 reps each side)
4. Raunchy Reverse Crunch
Lie on your back with legs in a tabletop position – thighs vertical but knees bent. Place your arms palms down beside you and lift your head and shoulders off the ground. Squeeze your abs, raise your tailbone off the ground and push your toes up and over your head. Don’t swing your body and control the down phase carefully.
TARGET: Ripped abs
5. Hip Thrusts
Lie down with knees bent and feet on the floor or on a Swiss Ball. Push your heels into the ground, raise your hips up as high off the ground as you can. Squeeze those peachy butt cheeks as you go. For extra burn lift one foot of the floor then the other. Lower down slowly with your palms pushing into the floor beside you.
TARGET: Buns of steel
