As the dog days of summer are coming to an end, families are gearing up for the start of another busy school year. For many, the consistent schedule is a welcomed sign of relief. At FTOC, we want to make sure you stay moving, and incorporate physical exercise into your daily routine. Our Weight Resistance Trainer has designed another workout routine with your busy schedule in mind. These exercises are designed to do just about anywhere.
August Workout Step-by-Step
Bodyweight Squat: Sets 2-5, Reps 2-30
Start with both feet set about shoulder width apart, you can have a slight toe out to help with squat depth. Slowly descend the hips to a squat (as deep as you can comfortably go) and return back to the starting position.
Plank Twists: Sets 2-5, Reps 2-25 Each Side
Start in a pushup position with both hands planted on the ground. Raise one hand at a time towards the ceiling while twisting the torso in the same directions. Bring the hand back to the starting position and repeat on the other side.
Dead Bugs: Sets 2-5, Reps 2-20 Each Side
Start laying on your back with hands raised straight in the air and legs lifted with knees bent at a 90 degree angle. Slowly descend an opposing arm and leg (left arm-right leg, right arm-left leg) at the same time in opposite directions to a few inches above the floor. Return the set to the starting position and repeat.
Stationary Runs: Sets 2-5, Reps 10-60 Seconds
Start standing with both feet about hip width apart and alternate driving one knee up at a time to the chest in a running fashion. Repeat for time.
