In this new monthly feature, certified athletic therapist Peter Levidis creates easy and accessible workouts. Here’s his seven-day plan that you can do anywhere for all-over conditioning. Aim for 12 to 15 reps each.
MONDAY (Push) Do push-ups off a counter, keeping your elbows facing 45 degrees behind you.
SATURDAY (Lunge) Do walking lunges, keeping your front knee behind your toes, lowering for a count of two, pausing for one second and rising for one second.
THURSDAY (Squat) Do body weight squats, keeping your bum back and lowering for a count of three. Pause for a second and raise for a count of one.
WEDNESDAY (Twist) Using an elastic band, do a lunge stretch from side to side as you sweep the elastic around the front of your body.
TUESDAY (Pull) Do elastic rows with an exercise band, keeping your elbows behind you as you pull your shoulders backwards.
FRIDAY (Bend) Do Romanian dead lifts, hinging at the hip to lift a weight of your choice, knees slightly bent and back arched.
SUNDAY (Walk) Go for a quick-paced walk or jog for 15 to 20 minutes.
