This fast-paced circuit blends heart-pumping cardio with total-body strength and dynamic flexibility for a killer head-to-toe workout. “They’re not only fun moves,” says Kaiser, who appeared as a backup dancer in Shakira’s “She Wolf” video, “but also super effective.” More specifically, the following dance-like exercises—which are all moves Shakira loves, says Kaiser—not only help burn calories, torch fat, and chisel serious definition, but also keep your body healthier.
The first three exercises will boost your heart rate while building lower-body strength and actively stretching your muscles to improve flexibility. You’ll complete the moves as a circuit, doing as many reps as possible in the prescribed amount of time, with no rest in between. Then you’ll move to the next three moves, which focus on core stability while engaging everything from your arms and shoulders to abs and glutes.
So what are you waiting for? Pump up your playlist and get busy sculpting a strong, lean physique.
