One person’s towel is another person’s resistance band! Use a towel to help with stretching or for a killer arm workout. Looking for a leg challenge? On a smooth floor, assume the plank position with a small towel under each of your feet. Then, in a very slow and controlled manner, try gliding your legs apart and then back together again. Feel the burn!
Soup cans, water bottles or laundry detergent jugs
Treat any of these household items like hand weights or dumbbells. Give your arms a major workout by doing some front raises, tricep kickbacks or overhead presses.
Besides sweeping, a broom can also give your core, hips and glutes a workout. Next time you’re sweeping the floor, shake things up by adding some hip hinges or oblique twists to your usual routine.
A sturdy chair (without wheels) can make an excellent addition to your workout routine, whether you’re trying to perfect your squats or practice some leg raises. Throw a second chair into the mix and practice some tricep dips.
Strengthen your arms and chest by practicing several sets of countertop push-ups. These are a great activity to sneak in while you’re waiting for water to boil or the oven to pre-heat.
If you find yourself under a genuine lockdown where leaving the house isn’t permitted, hit your household stairs for your prime form of cardio. Whether living in a house or apartment building, most folks have access to at least one flight of stairs. If you can head outdoors and have a great local park with a set of stairs… even better!
