Small Space Workout

 

Welcome to my bathroom. bathroom

It usually isn’t this clean. I cleaned it up just for you 🙂

Some days the only time I can find to workout is when the kids are in the bath. So I do a little workout right there in the bathroom. Yup, I can work up a sweat in that little space. I thought I would share a “small space workout” to encourage you to find time where ever you are to get a little exercise in. You don’t need a gym or a treadmill…just some motivation!

So, here’s my most recent small space workout!

Modified push ups– my arm has really been hurting me lately so I switched to modified push ups for a while. Put your hands on the bath tub (or a wall) and slowly lower your body. Push back up. Repeat.

Squats– this core workout is probably my favorite but you have to make sure you do it right! I had my knees in bad shape for a while just because I didn’t take the time to look up the proper position: feet shoulder width apart, back straight, head up, butt out. Without letting your knees pass your toes, lower your body as if you were going to sit in a chair behind you. Go as low as you can then slowly go back up.

High Knees– run in place while lifting your knees up as high as you possibly can. 

Tricep dips– stand with your back facing a bench/chair/couch and put your hands on the bench.  Put your legs out and slowly lower your body. It’s like an upside down push up. Keeping your legs out and body straight, raise and lower your upper body.

Modified Surfer Squat– Stand with your legs should width apart. Like the squat, don’t let your knees go past your toes as you touch your left hand to your right foot. Stand up then touch your right hand to your left foot.
