The gym is a no-go during iso, so we need to find a way to stay fit and toned while we’re at home. Steph Adams, in her book “Beauty and Wellness: A Woman’s Guide to Healthy Living with Health Recipes, Beauty, Wellness and Fitness Tips At Home”, provides readers with Australian Model, Natasha (Tash) Oakley’s home workout for all to try out.
30 High Knees
Keep core tight and engaged to activate the abdomen. I like to keep my arms stacked at chest-height. Slowly begin kicking each leg as high as you can while keeping your legs straight, if possible. Don’t forget to breathe!
Lay on your back, making sure your tail bone is on the floor or touching your mat so you don’t injure your lower back. I like to keep my legs in the air at a 90-degree angle to target my lower abdomen as well. Keep your arms wide behind your head and slowly breathe in as you curl up and breathe out as you curl down.
25 Air Bike
Lay on your back, elongate your left knee, while your right is curled in towards your stomach. Slowly switch, elongating your right knee and curling your left. I like to start slow and use my breath to guide the movements. Once you’ve created a flow, continue rotating between your left and right legs.
10-second low plank
Make your way onto your forearms, keeping your entire body straight, and tail bone tucked in while engaging your core. Breathe for 20 seconds, activating all your body muscles.
40 Mountain Climbers
Move to a high plank. Slowly curl your right then left knee up to your elbows. I start slow and move to a faster but still controlled pace. Remember to breathe! If you’re feeling like you need a little more of a challenge, bring your knees to the alternating elbow.
