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.

Lie on your back with arms at your sides, palms down and knees bent 90 degrees, feet on the floor. Keeping your knees bent, raise legs straight up.
