Here's our brand new weekly feature... WORKOUT WEDNESDAY! We will be releasing a video every Wednesday showing you how you can easily get your fit on at home. #workoutwednesday
Today, I started with 5 simple body weight exercises that you can do with no equipment and limited space!
You will have heard of most of them before:
- Push up
- Sit up
- Glute bridge
In the video I run through the correct movement standards as well as provide tips and regressions for anyone that struggles with these movements.
As mentioned in the video, there are a number of ways you could incorporate these in to your day:
- Put aside half an hour of your day (maybe just before you start working, at lunch time or after your working day ends) to fashion yourself a workout. Try doing 3 sets x 10 reps of each exercise with 30 seconds rest between each set...
- Fashion a workout that will keep you moving! For example, try doing 10 repetitions of each for as many rounds as possible in 10/20/30 minutes.
- Put an alarm on your phone to get up from your work station every 10/15/30 minutes to do 10 repetitions of one or all of these movements! (If you did 10 squats every 30 minutes for a full 8 hour day, you'd have done 160 squats by the end of the day!)
I've been doing my home workouts outside whilst the weather is nice which has been fantastic for my mood... and my tan! But you could equally do these movements indoors as demonstrated in the video (which will come in handy when our usual standard of British weather returns.) SO NO EXCUSES NOT TO EXERCISE, WHATEVER THE WEATHER!
*Disclaimer: As with any physical activity, there is a risk of injury associated. Please ensure that you do not exceed your limits and that you select the appropriate exercise for your skills and abilities, as well as for any mental or physical conditions and/or limitations you have. We may suggest exercises, regressions/progressions, or the use of equipment, and it is your sole responsibility to determine if any such suggested exercise, regression/progression or equipment, is appropriate for your level of ability and physical and mental condition
