Quick 15 minute bodyweight workout burns calories on your lower body and abs
While the coronavirus pandemic has caused gyms across the UK to close, that doesn’t mean you can’t still workout.
In recent weeks, many fitness bunnies and gym hunks have been forced to do home workouts in a bid to keep in shape.
So if you don’t have any weights lying around your home, here’s a simple workout which uses just your body.
The fitness gurus at Men’s Health shared the bodyweight home workout which burns calories on your lower body and abs.
Sean Garner, the creator of the Men’s Health 6-Week Sweat Off program, hosted a live home workout session from his balcony.
He designed a simple bodyweight session that targets the lower body and core with an intense focus.
All you need is a mat, some space to spread out and 12 to 15 minutes of your quarantine life to do this workout.
Here is Sean’s bodyweight lower body and core burner:
Complete 3 to 5 rounds of 30 seconds on with 10 seconds rest.
Iso Lunge Knee Driver – Right and Left
How to do: Get in a core lunge position, then drive opposite arm and leg, as if you’re running but making sure you keep the other leg in place.
How to do: Using your mat, you’re running as if you’re going up a ladder. Make sure you go forwards and then backwards on the mat.
Side Plank with Leg Raise – Right and Left
How to do: This position is fairly simple, get into a side plank position and then raise your leg.
How to do: Using the mat again, you step from side to side.
Front Plank Reach Out
How to do: In a plank position, you reach out making sure that you’re engaging your core.
Hip Lift March
How to do: Get on your back and perform the bridge technique then lift one of your legs up. Make sure you’re keeping straight so you can really feel it in your glutes and core.
Squat Jump Tap-In
How to do: Squat down and jump up to tap your legs then repeat.
