Balancing work, family and exercise can be difficult, there are just not enough hours in the day. We all need time to wind down after a hard day but what if you could kill two birds with one stone? Why not multi task and do some exercise while you’re watching your favourite show on tv! These exercises will help you to get that killer bod you’re looking for, all from the comfort of your home.
Keep your upper body straight, with your shoulders back and your chin up. Pick a point to stare at in front of you so you don’t look down, like the tv! Engage your core and step forward with one leg lowering your hips until both knees are bent at about a 90 degree angle
Slide your bottom off the seat and hold yourself up with your arms straight, keeping your body close to the chair. Slowly lower your body for two counts as you bend your elbows, they should be directly behind you, not out to the sides. Straighten your arms for a count of two
Stand with your feet shoulder width apart, your feet should be pointed out slightly. Pick a spot to look at and don’t look down or up when you squat. Put both arms straight out in front of you. Engage your core, keep your back straight. As you squat keep your knees in line with your feet and lower yourself until your hips are below your knees.
