7 exercises you should do every day
Here are seven exercises that you can do every day to help maintain your overall fitness:
Squats work your legs, glutes, and core. Start with your feet shoulder-width apart, and slowly lower yourself down into a sitting position, keeping your back straight. Then, push up through your heels and stand back up.
Push-ups are great for your chest, arms, and core. Start in a plank position with your hands shoulder-width apart, and slowly lower yourself down until your chest touches the ground. Then, push back up to the starting position.
Lunges work your legs, glutes, and core. Start with your feet shoulder-width apart, and step forward with one foot, bending your knee until your thigh is parallel to the ground. Then, push back up to the starting position and repeat on the other side.
Planks work your entire core, including your abs and lower back. Start in a push-up position, but instead of lowering yourself down, hold yourself up in a straight line from head to heels for as long as you can.
Jumping jacks get your heart rate up and work your arms and legs. Start with your feet together and your arms at your sides. Then, jump up and spread your feet apart while raising your arms over your head. Jump back to the starting position and repeat.
Bicycle crunches work your abs and obliques. Lie on your back with your hands behind your head, and bring your knees up to a 90-degree angle. Then, bring one elbow to the opposite knee, while extending the other leg out. Alternate sides and repeat.
Burpees are a full-body exercise that combines a squat, push-up, and jump. Start in a squat position with your hands on the ground. Then, jump your feet back into a push-up position, lower yourself down, and do a push-up. Then, jump your feet back up to your hands and jump up as high as you can. Repeat
