Brooke Burke Charvet's Fit in 10 Minutes Workout

Brooke Burke Charvet is in awesome shape and even has her own line of fitness DVDs, Tone & Tighten and Strengthen & Condition. Ladies' Home Journal asked her and her trainer, Gregory Joujon-Roche, to set us up with their favorite moves for firming up legs, butt, abs, and arms -- no equipment needed. Do the exercises in a circuit (it takes 5 minutes) without resting, and repeat it once or twice.

    Step 1: Rear Lunge to Kick

    Works legs, butt, and core

    With feet at hip width and hands clasped, lunge back with right leg so left thigh is parallel to floor and knee is aligned directly over ankle.

    Step 2: Rear Lunge to Kick

    Works legs and butt

    Stand with your feet wider than shoulders, toes turned out, and hands resting on hips.

  • Step 2: Plie Series

    Step 1: Bench Dip

    Works triceps

    Sit on the edge of a chair and grip the front on either side of your hips. Straighten arms and shift hips off chair. Walk feet forward so knees are aligned over ankles.

  • Andrew Southam

    Step 1: Hip Lift
