Since the closure of all unnecessary businesses and the nationwide lockdown, working out and staying fit for some people has become difficult, especially if you are used to using your local gym. If you want to continue your usual routine at home or you just want to start working out, here are some exercises you can do in the safety of your own home. Working out is not only great for our physical health but it releases endorphins which benefit us mentally as well!
This is a beginners full body cardio circuit which is meant to be completed with little to no rests and then repeated as many times as you can safely. If you are more intermediate, try adding more weights, more reps or a resistance band to increase the difficulty.
- 20 bodyweight squats
- 10 push-ups
- 10 walking lunges (on each leg)
- 10 bicep curls (use cans of food or a jug of milk if you have no weights! Whichever is the right weight for you)
- 15 second plank
- 30 jumping jacks to finish!
After this, your body will be fully worked out and you should be feeling on top of the world! Remember it is extremely important to stay safe in this unsettling time but that does not mean your usual routine should be interrupted, it is important that we all support each other by keeping our spirits up and the virus down!
