Do you spend a lot of time sitting down? Then you need to try my chair workout! I'm Samantha Clayton, fitness expert and former competitive sprinter. I'm working with Herbalife to help you achieve a healthy, active life.
Today, I want to take you through a full 10 minute chair workout using.... You guessed it: a chair! I put some popular chair moves together into a practical routine that you can enjoy at home ... or during your next long phone call at the office. You'll need a set of light dumbbells, or you could use two full water bottles.
Before starting your chair workout, check to ensure you are in a safe position with nothing overhead like a shelf. Also make sure there's nothing in front of you that would stop you extending your legs out straight.
First do a quick warm up with these simple moves: - Neck stretch holding chair - Bent-elbow shoulder roll - Breathing shrugs - Opposite side-twist with hold - Knee to chest - Leg extension - Alternate knee-lifts
After warm up, you are ready to go all out with my chair workout! Follow this routine by doing each move 12 times. Do this circuit twice; and be sure to follow my extra tips on posture from the video.
- Front raise with weight, first up then out - French overhead-tricep-press - Rear deltoid raise - Opposite arm to opposite knee with weight - Oblique side bends - Combination: Figure eight row to double leg lift - Squats to single leg raise - Knee extension to abduction
I hope you enjoyed this chair workout and found a way to add some simple exercises into your day. Next time you're seated, give this workout a try!
