Kids, work, travel. All reasons we look to in order to skip the workout. Not anymore! The best part of fitness is that it’s versatile. You can sit in a chair and workout, you can stand and workout. No matter where you are in your day, you can fit in exercise and show your kids, no matter what the day brings, it can be done!
MECKids has 5 exercises you and your kids can do ANYWHERE and together!
Wall Sits: Place yourself against a wall and walk your legs out until you are at a 90 degree angle. Hold that position for 60 seconds. Do that for 3 reps.
Push-ups: No matter if you are do them with bent knees or or with your legs extended out, you will get your heart-rate UP! Do 15 reps for 3 sets.
Lunges: While in standing position, extend (lunge forward) with one leg. Alternate 15 reps on each leg for 3 sets.
Squats: Stand with legs shoulder-width apart. Bend down 90 degrees then return to standing position. Repeat this motion for 15 reps, 3 sets.
Planks: Work that core! Stand in full push-up position with legs extended out and arms out at full extension touching the floor. Shoot for 60 seconds, 3 reps.
The beauty of these exercises is that they are simple, yet effective and of course, can be done anywhere! Stuck in a cramped hotel room? No problem. Busy day at the office or at home with the kids? No problem!
Doing these with the family ensures the workouts will get done and make it that much more fun!
Stay active with your family no matter where you are! You gotta move!
