Home sweet personal gym



Exercise at home Do three sets of 10 to 15 reps. Between sets, take a 30- to 40-second break, drink a lot of water or do some light stretching.

V sit-up: Lie down with your arms stretched above your head, the back of the hands touching the floor. Exhale as you lift your arms and legs straight up, and inhale on the way down.



Seated knee-up: Sit down on a stool with no back support, extend your legs forward, and tilt your body backward. Inhale as you pull your knees to the chest, and make sure your knees stay together. Breathe out as you return to the starting position.



Bench dip: Place a chair behind your back, place your hands on it and take a seated position. Inhale as you bend at your elbow, all the way down until just before your buttocks touch the floor. Exhale on your way up. Keep your upper body straight during the set.



Shoulder bridge: Lie down on your back with your arms at your side and knees bent with feet on the floor. As you exhale, put pressure on your feet and push your hips up. At this point, your hips should be off the mat and your back should be straightened out. Inhale and slowly bring your hips back to the mat.



Superman: Lie face down with your arms and legs stretched out. As you exhale, extend your arms and legs towards the ceiling. Try to keep your arms and legs straight but do not lock them. Slowly bring your arms and legs back down to the starting position as you inhale.
