I have a workout challenge that will only take a few minutes but will get you energized for the entire day!
Weekend Workout Challenge
Exercise 1: Side Step Jumping Jacks
Stand straight up with your arms to your sides and your feet together. Step to the side with your right foot while keeping your left foot still. As you do this, bring your arms up and clap your hands over your head. Then return to the starting position in one motion. Repeat the same motion with your left leg. Repeat 10 times each side for 20 total reps.
Exercise 2: Bodyweight Squats with Chair Assistance
Stand behind a chair with your feet shoulder-width apart and a chair placed in front of you. Grip the chair with both hands for support. Drop your hip so your butt lowers to the ground. Keep the weight off your heels. Go down as far as you comfortably can, then bring your hips back up to starting position. You should feel your quads (thigh muscles), hamstrings (behind your thigh) and glutes (butt muscles) tense. Perform 3 sets of 5 reps each.
Exercise 3: Palm pushes
Sit in the chair with your spine neutral and shoulders relaxed. Bring your palms together about 12 inches out in front of your chest with your fingers extended away from you. Squeeze your palms together for 10 seconds, then rest. Repeat 2 more times for 3 total sets.
And that’s it! You’ve completed a workout where you build strength in your upper body, lower body, and even gotten some cardio! This should get you moving all throughout the day!
