5 At-Home Exercises You Need This Winter
Vowing to regularly work out is one of the most common New Year’s resolutions, but the cold temperatures and crowded gyms can make it surprisingly hard. Use the following at-home exercises to help you get fit and healthy in 2019 in the comfort of your own home.
Lay flat on your stomach with your palms and toes placed firmly on the ground. Push yourself up until your body is in a flat, plank-like position. Hold for 15-60 seconds doing 3-4 reps to really strengthen your core.
Stand on a step in your home with your heels hanging over the edge. Lift on to your tip toes and lower back down until you feel a burn in your calf. Make the exercise more difficult by holding something heavy or doing one leg at a time.
Lay down flat on your back with your arms at your side, palms down, and your feet pushed back towards your glutes so your knees bend. Lift your glutes up and hold for 30 seconds. Repeat until you feel your muscles begin to burn.
Sit on a chair with your hands placed firmly on the edge shoulder-width apart. Move your body just off the front of the chair with your legs extended out in front of you. Slowly lower your body by bending at your elbows. Then, push yourself back up to the starting position. Repeat 10 to 15 times per set, working your way up to 3–4 sets per workout.
Stand with your back against a wall. Slide down until your knees are at a 90-degree angle. Hold anywhere from 30 seconds to two minutes.
To get the most out of your exercise regimen, you need the right fuel. After you work out, pack on the protein with Lee’s Oven Roast Chicken — classic chicken dusted with savory herbs and seasonings that’s baked until golden brown.
