The ‘daily dryland’: Ideas to stay active while at home

By Reach for the Wall Staff

Today we look at a workout that was posted on Instagram by Ryan Lochte. This is a focused set of exercises that will leave your core aching. A few of us tried this out & made it halfway through round two before everything turned to jelly…let us know how you do!

The lead-in to this workout from Ryan: ” People ask me all the time how to get faster in the water. It shocks them when I tell them that what we do outside the pool will dictate how we do inside the pool. Nothing like an old fashioned Ab workout. It takes about 5 minutes a day.”

1st round:

  • 20 toe touches,
  • 20 feet at 90 degrees crunches,
  • 20 legs on floor crunches,
  • 20 leg raises,
