300320 Anaerobic exercise while maintaining social distancing

On a daily basis, improve your strength with these two exercises. Do each of these for four sets of 10 to 15 repetitions 2 to 3 times a day.

Start out with a kitchen chair squat. This chair should be solid and sturdy with no arms. Sit back onto the chair, and stand back up again without using your hands and arms to push on your legs to help you get back up.

If you’re feeling particularly ambitious, after standing up do calf raises by simply standing up as high as you can on your toes.

The next exercise will help increase your upper body strength. Depending on your strength, do wall push-ups, countertop push-ups, or if you are strong enough use the kitchen chair or on the floor with regular push ups.

If you decide to use the chair, push it up against the wall and do your push-ups with your hands on the chair. I would also suggest putting a towel on the back of the chair so you don’t damage your walls.
