Fall Workout Step-by-Step
Bodyweight Squats: Sets 2-5, Reps 3-20
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 towards the ground into a squatting position (as deep as you can comfortably go), keeping the full foot from heel to toe in contact with the ground, and return back to the starting position.
Inverted push up:Sets 2-5, Reps 3-20
Start with the hands and feet on the ground with the hips raised to bring the back to a diagonal position towards the floor. Slowly bring your shoulders and head to within a few inches of the floor while maintaining an activated core and straight back. When you get to the lowest depth you comfortably can, press your body back up to the starting position using your hands and straightening your arms. Repeat.
Plank with rear raise: Sets 2-5, Reps 4-20 Each Side
Start with the balls of your feet and forearms on the ground. Maintain an activated, tight core while keeping your body as straight as possible from the shoulders to the heels. Slowly raise your heel up behind you as high as you can while keeping your raised leg straight through the motion. Slowly bring the raised leg back to the starting position and repeat on the opposite side.
Penguins: Sets 2-5, Reps 6-30 each side
Start by laying on your back with your knees raised and feet flat to the floor. The further out from your body and closer together your feet are, the more difficult the exercise will be. With your arms straight and to the sides of you and shoulders raised slightly off the ground, reach one hand to tap the same side heel by squeezing the sides of your core. Return to the start position and repeat on the opposite side.
