Working out the whole body – no equipment needed
Now that most people are back at work, time and traffic jams have become an issue again.
And that means less time for workouts.
My neighbourhood parks are seeing fewer joggers and walkers, while restaurants are brimming with diners – how quickly we humans shift our wellness priorities!
Even the gyms are seeing smaller numbers, but this could be because people are still cautious of exercising in enclosed, air-conditioned areas.
To tackle the lack of time and fear of exercising with others, here’s an exercise sequence you can try that will work most of your major muscle groups.
You don’t need any equipment (you can also do this barefoot), only a space that is big enough to accommodate your body length-wise and height-wise.
Where possible, I’ve given modifications to cater for all fitness levels.
Speed is not as important as form, so start slow.
Perhaps you’ll only be able to do the sequence once – that’s perfectly fine.
Eventually, you should be able to do more and start seeing results.
