The ‘daily dryland’: Ideas to stay active while at home-week 8

By Reach for the Wall Staff

Another Friday & another day where it looks like exercising indoors is the best option! Today’s suggestion comes from All Star Aquatics head coach Bob Walker:

  1. 80 pushups from your knees (all the way up & down)
  2. HOLD a straight arm pushup position plank for 3 minutes
  3. HOLD a side plank on your forearm for 2 minutes, repeat on the other side
  4. STAND on 1 leg, extend the opposite leg, sit down (90 degree squat) and stand up 25 times, keeping your leg in the air the whole time. Repeat with the other leg
  5. HOP (up and down using both legs), then leap lateral/sideways, repeat the hop, then leap lateral/sideways back to the starting position. Repeat 40 times

After the above exercises you may need to cool things down with some yoga and mindfulness. Try out this session (Thanks SwimSwam and Jeff Grace)
