Here at Athletic Angel, we want to give you the motivation and knowledge to get/stay in shape.

This might feel like a setback to kick-starting 2020. But don’t let it. A fitness routine is crucial now more than ever, not only for their physical benefits but also for their mental benefits. Working up a sweat, eating nutritiously, and staying positive.
We are providing you a routine so that you can exercise at home. All you need is a yoga mat, towel, and timer to get started. And get ready to soak up a sweat!

1. Mountain Climbers
Make sure your hands are directly underneath your shoulders and drive your knees into your chest. Keep your back flat and core engaged.
2. 10 Bicycle Crunches, 2 Jack-Knives
While on your back, push one elbow toward your opposing knee, keeping your core engaged and your shoulders off the ground. For the jack-knives, keep your feet raised and bring your hands toward your toes.
3. 5 Star Jumps, 2 Prisoner Squats
Five jumps with arms and legs outstretched to give a cardio boost, followed by two squats with your hands behind your head, fingers unlocked, and elbows pointed outward. Squeeze your shoulder blades as you go into the squat. Make sure to sink the weight in your heels.
4. 10 Shoulder Taps, 2 Push-Ups
Keeping your body in a plank position, feet out wide, tap your hand to your opposite shoulder. Following that, go down into two push-ups (on your knees if you need to modify). Keep your core engaged and elbows at a 45-degree angle as you raise and lower your body.
5. Hip Thrusters
Lying flat on your back, raise and lower your hips squeezing your glutes at the top. Don’t let your bum touch the ground.
6. Forward to Reverse Lunges
Bring one leg forward into a lunge, leg bent at a 90-degree angle, then reverse that same leg into a backward lunge. At the halfway point, switch legs.
Keeping both your legs and arms off the ground in as if you were flying like Super-Man, gently rock backward and forwards while keeping your core engaged.
Starting in a standing position, bring your full body to the ground placing your hands on the floor and shoot your feet backward. From there, bring your feet back toward your hands and stand upright. Repeat.
9. Squat Pulses
Squatting low with your feet underneath your shoulders, try to remain in that position for the full duration, weight in the heels, pulsing the whole time through.
