These are crazy, overwhelming and uncertain times.. even for our children who see us constantly fretting, nervous and tense worried about our near and dear ones and humankind in general.
I have a 10 year old at home, full of energy and no park time, making her spend even more time on the screen and adding to her restlessness.
So I decided I had to make a simple but effective workout plan for her to channel all that energy. It starts with a basic warm up followed by a main workout which can easily be done at home. .
It can be done by anyone who is in good health for basic conditioning and strength using body weight
First the warm up routine:
2. Alternating knee to chest
3. Alternating Single leg extensions
4. Lateral walks
5. Lateral alternating knee to elbow
She did approx. 10 - 15 reps on each side, 2 sets.
Main workout: Circuit of 5 exercises
1. Jumping jacks - 50
2. Incline push ups - 10 - 15
3. Sit ups - 15
4. Plank shoulder taps - 15 each side
5. Lateral lunge with leg raises - 15 each side
This circuit was repeated 3 times followed by a relaxed cool down stretching session for the back, lower body and upper body in that order.
Stay safe and strong everyone! Remember physical fitness has never been more important.
