THE SELF ISOLATION SERIES | 02 - FITNESS

It's super important for us all to try and keep active, especially during quarantine, where it's easy to forget about exercise.

We've put together five simple workout's that we're currently doing on a daily to help keep you active!

1.

Single-leg Dip

MUSCLES INVOLVED:

Triceps, Delts, Chest, Total Body

 

Sit on the floor with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Place your hands on the floor behind you. Raise your hips up and support yourself on your hands and feet. Then lift one leg off the floor. 

Bend your elbows and lower body toward the ground. Tap the floor with your glutes and then press back up and straighten your arms. Return to the starting position and switch legs.

 

2.

Straight-arm Plank

MUSCLES INVOLVED
Pecs, Delts, Triceps, Abs

 

Get into a push-up position on the floor with arms directly beneath your shoulders and hips forming a straight line from your shoulders to your feet. Brace core and hold for the recommended time.

 

3.

Tabletop Dip

MUSCLES INVOLVED
Triceps, Delts, Glutes, Hamstrings, Abs, Hips

Sit on the edge of a high box or bench with your hands below your shoulders and knees bent to 90 degrees. Palms should be placed firmly on the edge of the side of the bench or box. Be sure to grip tightly. Brace your core, squeeze the glutes, and step forward so your arms are fully extended and now support your body weight.

Bend your elbows, lowering your body in front of the bench or box until you reach the 90-degree point. Hold, keeping elbows tucked to your torso, then use the power of your triceps to return back to the starting position.

 

4.

Squat

MUSCLES INVOLVED
Glutes, Quads

Stand as tall as you can with your feet shoulder-width apart, toes slightly pointed outward. Keep arms in front of you at chest height to help maintain balance.

Drop your hips and sit back until your thighs are parallel with the floor. Pause, then drive through the heels and lift body upwards back to the starting position, squeezing the glutes at the top of the movement.

 

5.

Sit-up

MUSCLES INVOLVED
Abs, Back

Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor. Place your fingertips behind your ears with your elbows pointed out.

Without lifting your feet off the ground, curl your upper body upward toward your thighs. Keep your head in line with your body. Lower your upper body under control back to the ground.
