All you need is a sturdy chair and a little bit of space to move. Start by warming up with some light cardio, like jumping jacks or jogging in place, for 5-10 minutes.
Then, move on to these four exercises:
1. Chair squats: With your feet shoulder-width apart, lower yourself down into a squat until your butt just touches the chair, then stand back up. Repeat for 10-15 reps.
2. Push-ups: Place your hands on the seat of the chair and lower yourself down into a push-up, then push back up. If this is too difficult, you can modify it by placing your hands on the floor instead. Repeat for 10-15 reps.
3. Tricep dips: Sit on the edge of the chair with your hands gripping the seat behind you, then lower yourself down until your elbows are at a 90-degree angle, then push back up. Repeat for 10-15 reps.
4. Lunges: Stand with one foot on the seat of the chair behind you, then lower your back knee down toward the ground, then push back up. Repeat for 10-15 reps on each side.
Repeat this circuit 2-3 times, resting for 30-60 seconds between each round. Finish with some stretches to cool down and you'll be feeling stronger and more energized in no time! #athomeworkout #fitnessmotivation #healthylifestyle #pairwithyoga4addedbenefits
No chair? No problem.
1. Bodyweight squats: Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your arms by your sides. Lower yourself down into a squat by bending your knees and pushing your hips back, keeping your chest up and your weight in your heels. Aim to get your thighs parallel to the ground, then push back up to standing. Repeat for 10-15 reps.
2. Push-ups: Start in a plank position with your hands on the ground shoulder-width apart and your feet together. Lower your chest down toward the ground, keeping your elbows close to your body, then push back up to plank. If this is too difficult, you can modify it by dropping your knees to the ground. Repeat for 10-15 reps.
3. Tricep dips: Sit on the ground with your legs extended in front of you and your hands planted on the ground behind your hips, fingers pointing toward your body. Lift your hips off the ground and bend your elbows to lower your body toward the ground, keeping your shoulders down and your elbows close to your body. Push back up to starting position. Repeat for 10-15 reps.
4. Lunges: Start standing with your feet hip-width apart. Step forward with one foot, bending both knees to lower your back knee down toward the ground. Make sure your front knee stays directly over your ankle and doesn't go past your toes. Push back up to standing and repeat on the other side. Repeat for 10-15 reps on each side.
Remember to always listen to your body and modify or rest as needed. And don't forget to warm up before you start your workout and cool down and stretch afterward!
BONUS EXERCISE: Burpees (Burps are not guaranteed )
8. Land softly on the ground and immediately repeat the entire sequence for the desired number of repetitions.
It's important to maintain good form throughout the exercise. Make sure your back stays straight and your core stays engaged throughout the movement.
If you're a beginner, you can modify the exercise by eliminating the push-up or the jump at the end.
