3 week guide BETTER BODY

I have been looking for a fitness plan to get my body ready for summer. 
This one from Marie Claire. I like to think that my eating plan is good. 
I just need to get the exercise up and strengthen and hopefully flatten my tummy and hip area.


8-minute fat burner
HOW OFTEN? Do this workout three times a week in weeks one and two.
THE FORWARD LUNGE With feet hip-width apart, lunge forward so your front shin is perpendicular to the floor. Repeat 12 times on each leg.
PUSH-UPS Lie facedown on the floor. With hands flat on the floor at either side of your chest, rise up on to your hands. Leave knees on the floor if a full push-up is too tough to start with. Lower yourself almost to the ground, keeping your body straight and weight forward, then lift yourself back up. Repeat 20 times. 
LUNGE JUMP Place hands on hips and lower into a lunge. As you rise, jump and land back in the lunge position. Repeat 10 times on each leg.
SQUAT With feet shoulder-width apart and arms straight out in front, bend with your backside out as if sitting on a chair, then push up through your heels and return to a standing position. Repeat 20 times.
TRICEPS DIP Sit on a bench, grab hold of it on either side of your thighs and place your feet flat on the floor. Shift forward and lower yourself towards the floor by bending from the elbows in a reverse push-up. Repeat 20 times.
BURPEES Start in a push-up position, lower yourself as if doing a push-up, then, as you push yourself up, jump your feet in and stand up. Repeat 20 times.
