5 Exercises You Can Do In-front Of The TV
Exercising in the Winter is hard, we know, so here’s a few exercises to do in your nice warm living room in front of the telly.
1. Jump squat
Start by doing a regular squat, then engage your core and jump up explosively. When you land, lower your body back into the squat position to complete one rep. Land as quietly as possible, which requires control.
2. Lateral hops
Make small jumps side to side as if you are jumping over an invisible line.
This plank-to-squat move seems simple, but you’ll feel it as you do your 30-second bursts. Begin in a plank position. Jump your feet to the xoutside of your hands, coming into a deep squat and keeping your hands on the floor, then jump back to plank. Repeat in a quick succession.
4. Push up
Do basic push ups keeping your elbows close to your sides to work the triceps a little more.
5. Walking lunges
Take a controlled step forward with your left leg, curling the dumbbells to your shoulders, keeping your elbows close to the body. Lower hips toward the floor and bend both knees (almost at 90 degree angles). The back knee should come close but never touch the ground. Your front knee should be directly over the ankle and the back knee should be pointing down toward the floor. Push off with your right foot and bring it forward to starting position, lowering the dumbbells to your side.
