Home workout for lockdown!



Are you looking for a home workout🏡🏋️‍♀️ to help with lockdown expansion? Need something to help keep you focused🧘‍♀️ or clear your head? Or are you just wanting to start building some extra strength💪?

This Big 5 workout is a great place to start as you can easily do it at home with little more than some resistance bands (which you can get from Amazon or Kmart!).

The best way to approach this is with a 5 second count per rep. 2 seconds as you contract the muscle and breathe out, 3 seconds as you slowly release the muscle and breath in (ie. With a squat you will count 3 and inhale as you lower into the squat and count 2 while you exhale and lift your body). Do 12 reps of each exercise and if you’re up to it you can do 2 rounds but it might be better to increase the resistance slightly instead. Doing this twice a week will help you generate a sense of achievement as well as maintain or build some extra strength.


Key points:

  1. 12 reps per exercise.

  2. 2 seconds to contract muscle (exhale).

  3. 3 seconds to release muscle (inhale).

  4. if you can do more than 12 reps, try increasing the resistance.

  5. remember to check your form, you don’t want to injure yourself.

  6. faster reps or more reps doesn’t equal better results.
