As an In Home Personal Trainer, i often have to get creative with workouts for my clients. Sometimes, space is limited, they have very little equipment and I can only drag so much into their house! So I thought I would put together a workout anyone can do with no equipment. On the road in a hotel, or in your own home.
Always start with a warmup. Run the steps for 5 minutes, do 100 jumping jacks or go out side and walk briskly for 7 minutes. Ok, now that we’re warmed up lets get down to the movements. With my in home personal training clients, i often do a full body workout. So what I have below is something that will work every inch of your body, and get your heart rate up as well.
Body Weight Squats-Place hands on floor, slightly wider than shoulder width. On forefeet, position one leg forward bent under body and extend other leg back. Now alternate leg positions by pushing hips slightly up and alternating legs forward and back.
Step Runs-assuming you have nothing preventing you from it, run up and down steps for a minute. Rest for 30s. then do it again for 1 minute, rest 30, go another minute, rest-
Curtsy Lunge-Let’s show a little respect. When lunging, step the left leg back behind the right, bending the knees and lowering the hips until the right thigh is almost parallel to the floor. Remember to keep the torso upright and the hips square.
Burpees-One of the most effective full-body exercises around, this one starts out in a low squat position with hands on the floor. Next, kick the feet back to a push-up position, complete one push-up, then immediately return the feet to the squat position. Leap up as high as possible before squatting and moving back into the push-up portion of the show
Prone Walk Outs-Beginning on all fours with the core engaged, slowly walk the hands forward, staying on the toes but not moving them forward. Next, gradually walk the hands backwards to the starting position, maintain stability and balance.
I think that about covers it for now…quick, full body workout from your In Home Trainer, Jeannine Jubeck
