Staying home doesn’t have to mean missing out on a workout. Keep your body strong and healthy with this routine from StrongFirst (SFG), American Sports and Fitness Association (ASFA) personal trainer (PT), Ryan Jabola.
Ryan is an experienced PT at the Student Recreation and Wellness Center. His specialty is teaching clients how to work out in and outside of the gym to improve strength and mobility.
“Just know that even though these are tough times, the aftereffect of these exercises and getting yourself to move, even though it’s not a very rewarding environment, can make you feel good and recharge your mind and body,” Jabola said.
Body Weight Circuit:
To start your workout, set a timer for 15 to 20 minutes and repeat this routine as many times as you can.
- Bodyweight squat (10 to 12 reps)
- Push-up, standard or modified (8 to 12 reps)
- Bodyweight lunge, normal or backward lunge (8 to 10 reps)
- Plank, focus on making your body super tight below neck down (1 minute)
Do these exercises back-to-back and minimize your rest in-between each circuit.
Ryan’s Healthy Tips:
- Stay hydrated all day long.
- Eat 2 to 3 servings of vegetables a day.
- Sustain your muscles by getting adequate protein.
