Sharing today another great do at home workout that is safe for you to try right now. I often hear I can’t afford a Personal Trainer, well now you have found me or I don’t want to join a gym, well I have joined you. This workout can be done anywhere really and all you need is your body, no equipment necessary. Below are four exercises I want you to try and run through four times. You obviously don’t need a coffee table that was just to get you to think outside the box.
First I want you to put your favourite fast song on and dance around in order to warm up your body. This gets the fluid moving in your joints and the blood pumping extra oxygen around your body ready for some physical activity.
Find somewhere you can pull your body weight up. Under the coffee table, kitchen bench, kitchen table anywhere get creative. It’s important to have a good strength to weight ratio meaning you should be strong enough to lift your own body weight. If you have somewhere you can do chin ups event better.
Start in a squat position, jump up onto the coffee table landing softly in a squat, then backwards onto the floor. Pick one spot to stare at, concentrate and go for it. This can be replaced with simply stepping up if you want something low impact. If you can manage this then do it as this is what will get your heart rate up. Up The Intensity: Non stop, no breaks.
Have your butt just sitting on the coffee table, arms bent behind you balancing your upper body. Extend your left get out, belly in, then swap legs. Up The Intensity: Two legs at once.
Legs hip width apart, arms out for balance and squat your butt down to the coffee table then back up. Up The Intensity: Upgrade to jump squats.
COFFEE TABLE WORKOUT BREAKDOWN
12 X Pull Ups
20 x Box Jumps (or step ups)
20 x Bicycle Crunches
20 x Squats
Do each exercise one after the each other with no rest this equals one round.
When done have 1 minutes rest.
Repeat the circuit 4 times. BAM workout done!
Pull ups are working your upper body chest arms and back. Box jumps are your cardio they get your heart working. Bicycle crunches work your core. Squats are for your butt and thighs. So by doing these four exercises you are having a full body workout.
You don’t have to always go to a gym, you don’t always have to leave your house, you don’t always need the equipment they sell on the shopping channel. You do need to do something every day, and you do need to try this. Should take you 15 minutes, it will get you in the mood then you can go for a walk or run.
