A simple lower-limb at-home workout you can do anywhere

Posted on

Do you have a routine for your daily workout? What works better for you? Morning? Lunch? Afternoon?

Today is lower limb and balance day: 5 exercises, in your lounge room.

Each day throughout lockdown, we have been encouraging you to get up and move, and do the Workplace Workout (WPW) routine. We have really stepped it up this week: more exercises, increased resistance, and added at-home equipment.

If five exercises are too much for you, and you’ve just started joining us on the WPW journey, I’d recommend trying the earlier workouts from 2-3 weeks ago which are available on the HerCanberra website (ease your way into this new routine!). Click here to find them.

We have a simple structure for this week’s WPW:

Monday: Neck & thoracic (tick!)

Tuesday: Upper limb (tick!)

Wednesday: Hips & Back (tick!)

Thursday: Lower limb and balance (today!)

Friday: Core

Here’s today’s workout.
