When you really want to get fit without spending any money on the gym (or equipment) try these few hassle-free exercises!
Lie down on a mat or towel and lift your legs 90 degrees. Have your hands behind your neck to support and decrease stiffness to the neck. Reach as close as you can to your knees for 10 reps… and repeat this for 3 sets!
Make sure your legs are shoulder width apart. Have your back straight as this will prevent injuries and aches. Your knees should be above your toes, the trick is to put the weight of your body on your heels. Squat as low as you can for 10 reps and repeat the process for 3 sets! To make this slightly tougher, you could fill a bottle with water and hold the bottle to your chest while doing squats.
Have both feet facing frontwards and step forward with one leg. Lower your body until both knees are bent at a 90-degree angle. Make sure your front knee is directly above your ankle to prevent knee injury, and make sure your other knee doesn’t touch the floor. Keep the weight in your heels as you push back up to the starting position. Remember to have your upper body straight and your chin up! Do 10 reps and repeat the exercise for 3 sets.
