Keeping Fit During a Pandemic
Concerned about going to the gym? Too hot outside? Workout at home!
We understand that not only is it very hot outside these days, but you may also want to avoid gyms during these times. However, this should not keep you and your loved ones from maintaining a healthy lifestyle! Therefore, the Hayi team has compiled short work out routines for you below.
The following is a beginner’s version of a circuit training, meaning this sequence gets repeated multiple times!
Body weight squats: 20 reps
Push-ups: 10 reps
Walking lunges: 10 each leg
Dumbbell rows (using a gallon milk jug or weight): 10 each arm
Plank: 15 seconds
Jumping Jacks: 30 reps
This is also a circuit training sequence, which can be repeated multiple times according to your fitness level.
One-legged squats – 10 each [warning: super-difficult, only attempt if you’re in good enough shape]
Bodyweight squats: 20 reps (10 each leg)
Walking lunges: 20 reps (10 each leg)
Jump step-ups: 20 reps (10 each leg)
Pull-ups: 10 reps [or inverted bodyweight rows]
Dips (use barstools): 10 reps
Chin-ups: 10 reps
Push-ups: 10 reps
Plank: 30 seconds
This sequence is relatively difficult, so don’t despair if you need to take a couple breaks in the first few attempts! Try make it your goal to be able to get through this sequence 3 times eventually.
Bonus round: Hotel workout!
