Fitness Magazine states that losing 10 pounds is possible with head-to-toe toning exercises, cardiovascular sessions and a diet that the magazine created. The exercises can be done in whatever order a person wishes to perform them in a set but must all be completed each time. Besides the ingredients for the diet, a person needs a pair of 3- to 8-pound dumbbells and an exercise mat.
Fitness Magazine provides a list of exercises to tone the entire body. The regimen enlists the use of leg exercises called super leg slimmers, the salute and the static lunge kick-back. Abdomen exercises include the alternating abs exercise, the wiper blade and the cowboy crunch. The sumo twist, side hinge and the 360-degree kick are used for butt toning. Upper-body exercises include the double cross with an added leg lift at the end to increase effectiveness, the plank twist and the x reach.
Fitness Magazine recommends next that the exerciser performs cardio that quickly burns fat, such as stationary biking for 40 minutes, walking three and a half miles an hour for 75 minutes and jogging a 10-minute mile in 28 minutes, all three times a week. The collaborating diet enables the dieter to eat various foods without exceeding 1,500 calories a day.
