Full body home workouts
Posted date: 17-Apr-2020


Staying home means that we can’t head out for classes or head to the gym, and some of you might be worried about the amount of weight you’ll gain by the end of the circuit breaker, having to care for your kids (if any) and to work from home at the same time could be very time consuming and might prevent you from being able to get active or going for a run.


Why not squeeze out some 5 to 10 minutes every night to engage in some high intensity workouts?


#1 Jumping Jacks


Start with your legs together and your arms rested on your side, jump up, your feet shoulder-width apart and your arms spread to the side, then jump back to the resting position.


Repeat 10 times, 3 reps.


#2 Burpees



Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your arms at your sides. Lower your body into a squat, place your hands on the floor directly in front of you and move yourself into a plank position but instead of your forearms on the ground, your hands are the ones touching the ground. Move back into a squat position and jump up with your arms reaching over your head.


Repeat 10 times, 3 reps.


#3 Mountain Climbers



Start from a plank position, with your hands shoulder-width apart, back flat and abs engaged, distributing your weight evenly to your hands and your toes. Bring your right knee to your chest as much as you can, bring it back to the starting position and then bring the other knee towards your chest.


Repeat this 10 times, 3 reps.


#4 Skaters



Start in a small squat. Jump sideways to the left, landing on your left leg. Bring your right leg behind to your left ankle, and don’t let it touch the floor. Go in the opposite direction by jumping to the right with your right leg.


Repeat 10 times, 3 reps.


#5 Jumping lunges



Start with your feet shoulder-width apart, take a big step forward with your right leg keeping your arms by your side. Shift your weight with this leg, so your heel touches the floor first, then lower your body until your right thigh is parallel to the floor. Jump up and quickly switch the position of your feet so that your left leg moves forward, then bend into the position with your left thigh parallel to the floor this time.


Repeat 10 times, 3 reps.
