Here’s a list of a few exercises we commonly do during Twisted Cycle workouts that you can do at home! These basic ideas can be Incorporated into your daily routine.
1) While reading a book: plank.
Get strong while reading by getting into a plank on the floor. You can do this in intervals of anywhere from 30 seconds to however long you can hold it without breaking position.
HOW TO: Lie face down on the floor, then push up your body so just your toes and forearms are on the ground. If that’s too hard, just keep your knees on the ground.
2) While doing laundry: squats.
Why waste time and hurt yourself by constantly uncomfortably bending over while folding laundry? Doing laundry can go from being a pesky, painful task to a strengthening activity by adding squats.
HOW TO: Each time you reach for a piece of clothing, instead than bending over, squat down as if you’re sitting in an imaginary chair, grab the clothing, and then stand up. Make sure your knees don’t go past your toes when you squat.
3) While watching TV: lunges.
Instead of lazily lounging on the couch while binging your favorite shows and movies, make that time productive by doing lunges. You can do your lunges during commercials or throughout the program.
HOW TO: Stand with your feet about shoulder-width apart. Step backwards with your right foot, landing on the ball of your foot and bend your knees to create two 90-degree angles. Push through your left heel to return to standing. Repeat on the other side.
4) While you sit out by the pool: push ups:
What better time to work on your bathing suit body than when you are showing it off? Instead of idly sitting in your lounge chair, crank out some push ups while basking in the sun.
HOW TO: Start in a high plank position with your hands flat on the floor about shoulder- width apart, wrists under shoulders. Keeping your body in one long line, bend your arms and lower yourself as close to the floor as you can. Your elbows should be at about a 45-degree angle to your torso. Push back up to start.
