Here are 5 simple moves you can do in the comfort of your own home, with little to no equipment.
If you have some stairs to work with, and a 15-20 minute block of time, you could get a really great cardio workout in!
Exercise doesn’t need to be in hour or half hour increments to have a beneficial effect.
You could also incorporate these exercises throughout the day, by doing one set of 10-20 reps of all 5 exercises, a few times throughout the day. It only takes a few minutes to complete one full set (less than 5 minutes). It’s a nice way to perk yourself up when at work, rather than going for that 2nd or 3rd coffee, or sugary treat.
If you have the time to do a 15-20 minute workout with stairs, try doing one set of stairs, followed by one set of these 5 exercises, then 2 sets of stairs, followed by 1 set of these exercises, then 3 sets and so on.
Here are the 5 exercises. In the video, you will see the modifications.
Side to side steps or hops
Squats or squat press
Modified jumping jacks or regular jumping jacks
Step taps or step hop taps
Alternating knee to elbow twist or do it with a weight
