10 Minute No-Prop Work Out

Devon Maryn 1

I’m actually so excited about this post, you guys! When Devon Maryn reached out to me about featuring her work out gear, I got excited for so many reasons. Obviously her line of preppy pants and shorts are right up my alley but also I knew I could collaborate with my husband who is a trainer at one of New York’s most exclusive exercise studios, Inform Fitness.

He put together an easy (ok it’s not so easy) 10 minute work out that you can do on those days when you just don’t have the time to make it to the gym. I’m far from a fitness model so take these photos with a grain of salt but the work out actually makes you sore and all you need is a floor and a wall!

Obviously do all of this at your own risk. I don’t want anyone getting hurt and suing me! But seriously, the guy is a professional and knows what he’s talking about.

1. Start with a plank (1 minute). This is a good warmup to get your blood flowing and your heart pumping, not to mention it works the core to the core (get it?) and the lower back. The key is to make your body a straight line from head to toe, so look down at the ground to keep your spine aligned.

2. If the plank didn’t kill you, try a bird dog next (30 seconds on each side 2x). This funny looking exercise works the glutes and muscles along the spine for structural support. Get on all fours and lift your leg (either one). Lift opposite arm straight out in front of you. Keep your spine straight by looking straight towards the ground and keep those toes pointed. Squeeze the glutes.

3. Lift that butt (15 reps on each side, 2x). Lay on the ground with your arms by your two big toes touching each other. Lift one leg over your hips and push through the opposite heal to lift up your lower body. Repeat 15 times in a slow, controlled, and fluid movement. This will give your Hamstrings a good work out.

4. Next up? Super slow push ups (1 minute) which works your shoulders, triceps, and chest. Place your hands shoulder width apart. Bring chest to the floor as slowly as possible. Push yourself back up. Repeat! Be sure to keep your core tight to prevent back from sagging, which may cause tension in the lower back. Beginner? Do the same routine with your knees on the ground.

5. Finish up with a wall sit (1-1.5 minutes). This works the glutes and quads. Lean flat against a wall with your feet shoulder width apart. Walk your feet forward until your knees are bent at 90 degrees. Your toes should be off the ground so you are only pushing through the heels. I dare you not to make this face after you hit 60 seconds.

    Wall sits give me flashbacks to my brief stint on the basketball team in 7th grade (not one of my finer moments) but they burn so good!
