We partnered with Well + Good and asked the industry’s hottest instructors and fit-stagrammers to give us their quickest—and hardest—do-anywhere workouts. So, get pumped (on your own schedule)!
If you think of yoga as an easy, low-energy workout, our Brand Ambassador Heidi Kristoffer is here to tell you — once and for all — that it’s not.
“When I first started doing yoga, I assumed it would be easy for me because I was a workout junkie and athlete my entire life,” the CrossFlowX founder explains. “Within the first 30 minutes of my first class, I was not only dripping in sweat and totally out of breath—I was completely hooked.”
Instead of gentle stretches and a relaxing flow, Kristoffer’s workout will fire up your core, get you sweating, and—most of all—work those arms.
“While yoga is a physical workout, it’s also such a mental game because you’re working to successfully achieve those goal poses and inversions,” she explains. “And the arms are such a crucial part in that.”
From side planks and push-ups to chaturangas, Kristoffer promises that you’ll definitely feel stronger in your arms once this workout is over (and—ahem—once the soreness wears off).
So grab a mat and get started on this five-minute, arm-blasting yoga sequence!
