Get your body ready

Before you start doing any exercises, make sure you're all warmed up.
Do 5-10 minutes of cardio, just to get your heart rate up a bit.
Motivation tip: Listening to music can help you feel motivated throughout your workout.

Mountain climbers

Muscles worked: abs, obliques, quads, hamstrings, deltoids, biceps, triceps, and the chest.
Start off in the standard push up position. Pull your knees up to your chest, one at a time, in quick succession. You want to keep your body in a push-up position all the way through the exercise, so don't bob your hips up and down as you're tucking your legs in.  Do 20 seconds three times.

As the novel virus spreads across the world, most people are at home in a lockdown. Personal trainers recommend a few ways to work out from the comfort of your home, without any high-tech equipment...

Home Work Outs

Burpees are a quick push-up and jump combination that can be done easily on a flat surface. It’s a good idea to start with five to ten of them, and then challenge yourself with 100 in one go.


Air squats are an effective basic lower body exercise that can be done anywhere and combined with push-ups, mountain climbers and lunges, become a full body work out.

Work Out Creativity

Simple movements can be made challenging and more effective by holding them at key positions(like the bottom movement of a squat), making the muscles work harder. Any exercise that gets your heart pumping and makes you uses oxygen as fuel for the muscles is a cardio exercise.


Home furniture, like a chair, can be used to support your squats and also your upper body during tricep dips. For weights, broomsticks or jugs full of water can be used.


Keep washing your hands, eating healthy, and hydrating yourself, while getting plenty of sleep.
