Are you looking to spice up your current workout routine? Are you a Broadway fan, like us? Well luck be a lady, because we’ve got just the routine for you! So make like the Schuyler Sisters and work!

 

 

 

THE MOVES:

 

THE WAITRESS:  Stand with feet slightly wider than your hips. Lower your hips until both knees are bent at about a 90-degree angle. Tighten your core, and break at your hips and push your butt back. Make sure you keep your back straight. When you get to the bottom of the squat, hold it and make a large mixing gesture. For the additional burn, hold a light hand weight in your hands as you make the mixing gesture. Or, for the theatrical flair, maybe hold your own mixing spoon. Rotate once counterclockwise. Keeping everything tight, push upwards through the balls of your feet into a standing mood. Then, repeat but this rep making the motion clockwise. [TARGETS: LEGS/BUTS]

THE CHICAGO: Keep your upper body straight, with your shoulders back. Take your left left and step it forward.  Lower your hips until both knees are bent at about a 90-degree angle. When you’re at the bottom, channel your inner Merry Murderess, push your opposite arm forward and stab the air! Repeat with the opposite leg/arm. [TARGETS: LEGS/BUTS]

 

 

THE HAMILTON:  Stand with feet slightly wider than your hips. Take your left hand weight (or your heaviest book), and press up above your head. Repeat this with the 16 times (one for each Tony nomination). Switch arms, and repeat again for 16 reps. At the top, channel your inner Hamilton! [TARGETS: ARMS]

 

THE KINKY BOOTS: These are basic leg lifts.Lie down on one side. Put your top hand down on the floor to stabilize yourself.  Your legs should be extended and stacked on top of one another. Slowly raise your top leg as high as you can. Then bring it back down. Do 3 sets of 10 on each side. Get that booty working! [TARGET: GLUTES]

 

 

THE LION KING: This will be your generic sit up. But as you sit up, lift your arms up as if you’re presenting baby Simba. [TARGET: ABS]

 

 

THE ON YOUR FEET: Get on your feet, literally! Run in place, with all of your weight in your toes and your upper body is tight with limited movement.

 

 

THE BOOK OF MORMON: Time to say “Hello!” to cardio again. Start with feet in hips with distance. Run in place with your knees high and above your waist.

Get your sick tunes on, and get ready to break that sweat!
