Bodyweight exercises are fantastic and should form the base of your home workout. However, there is a simple way of adding resistance to certain movements using simple items found at your home.
2 heavier duty plastic bags and tins from your kitchen. That’s it.
Aim to perform the exercises using either of these methods:
- 30s of each exercise, with a 30s rest between each exercise. Repeat through the whole circuit before resting for 2 minutes and aiming to complete 5 total rounds.
- Perform 5 sets of 15 repetitions for each exercise, with 30-60s rest between sets depending on the difficulty of the exercise.
- Add extra items to the plastic bags for the following movements: deadlifts, lunges, rows high pulls. Be sure to test your bags before lifting them to make sure they do not split!
