Families Together recognizes that many people are looking for ways to improve their health and fitness, but may not know where to start. As the weather cools down and the leaves start to change color, it can be tempting to spend more time cuddled up and resting. But there are plenty of reasons to get outside and stay active in the autumn months! Here are a few ideas for September home workouts that the whole family can enjoy:
September Workout Step-by-Step
Lateral Squat Steps: Sets 2-5, Reps 3-12 Each Side
Start with your legs together with knees and hips bent in a squat position. Step one leg to the side while maintaining the squat position and feet facing forward. Then bring the stationary leg to meet with the first moving leg and repeat on the opposite side.
Shrugs: Sets 2-5, Reps 4-15
Start with your hands at your sides (With or without weight, depending on your strength level). Keeping the arms straight, raise your shoulders up to your ears while simultaneously squeezing your shoulder blades together. Pause at the top for at least one second and slowly lower your shoulders back to the starting position. Repeat.
Opposite Toe Touches: Sets 2-5, Reps 2-20 Each Side
Start by laying on your back with your arms stretched out above the head and legs straight on the ground. Squeeze your core to raise your torso and one of your outstretched arms up to meet with the opposite leg in the air. Bring both limbs down slowly and repeat on the other side.
