Try this energising bodyweight workout
Looking for a workout that helps you build strength while working up a sweat? Our Athletic Training Activist David has just the thing for you…
Perform each exercise for 10 reps (repetitions) and then rest for 15 seconds before starting the next exercise.
To work the same muscles but with some added weight, lie on your back with knees bent. Grab 2 dumbbells and push them above your head and then bring them back down. Repeat 10 times.
3. Renegade rows (x 10 each side)
From a plank position, lift one hand off the floor and bring it towards your shoulder. Place your hand back on the ground and repeat on the other side.
To challenge yourself a little more, try holding a dumbbell in one hand and lift it up to your shoulder.
4. Single Leg Romanian deadlifts (RDLs x 10 each side)
Put all your bodyweight on one leg and step your other leg backwards. Bend your back knee, hinge from your hips and lower your torso down, keeping a flat back. Use your glutes and the muscles in your standing leg to pull you back up. Do 10 slow and controlled movements each side.
To make this more challenging, use a dumbbell or kettlebell in each hand.
5. Russian Twists x 10 each side
Sit on the floor. Raise your upper body, legs and feet off the floor so your weight is resting on your glutes. Then clasp your hands together and, without moving your body, tap your hands to the floor on the left side and then on the right.
