4 Exercises You Can Do Anywhere: Week 3

Hey all!  Here’s another set of whole body exercises that you can do anywhere, this is a step up in difficulty from last week.

Intervals:

Instead of repetitions, try intervals of 30 to 45 seconds of the exercise and 15 seconds of recovery.  If you are just starting to exercise, try a 1 minute rest instead of 15 seconds.

Sets:

Try and perform all these exercises one after the other 3 to 5 times.

Frequency:

Do these exercises 2-5 days a week.

Exercises:

1. Lunge:

  • With your hands on your hips and feet hip-width apart.

  • Step forward with your left leg bending 90 degrees at the hip and knee
  • Lower your body until the right knee is close to or touching the floor
  • Return to the starting position and repeat with left leg
  • Try stepping back into the lunge for a different variation.

2. Seated Rows:

  • Secure a resistance band around your feet
  • keep your legs out in front of you with your knees slightly bent
  • grabbing the handles with palms facing in.
  • Sitting up straight with core tight

  • Pull the handles back keeping your arms tight to your body and squeezing the shoulder blades together
  • Then let your arms come forward to the starting position
  • Repeat

 

3. Side Lateral Raise:

  • Standing with feet shoulder with apart, hands down to your sides with palms facing in, and weight in each hand.

  • Engage your core and lift your arms up until they are parallel to the floor
