It’s always a fun thing when you can get a killer workout in using a household item. Today that item is a chair! You can do this workout with actual workout equipment as well, so a bench, box, step etc., but I’m using a chair. Sometimes it’s just nice to see a workout with no fancy equipment right
Also, I just got this chair for chair workouts because we didn’t have a single chair in our apartment before. You might be wondering how that’s possible. How do we eat? Are we crazy?! Since we live on the 3rd floor, we’ve held off on things like tables, chair and other things that would be unpleasant to carry up that many steps! I know, sounds lazy for someone always telling you to be active :D. This whole plan is also dependent on the fact that we find a house in the next 3 or 4 months..which so far has been at a bit of a standstill soo maybe we just need to get some real people furniture and get on with it, ah well. We’ll seee..
So on to important things, like this workout. It’s a great little fat burning HIIT, I was very out of breath by the end and it was only 15 minutes. So it’s an ammazing one to fit in if you’re short on time. I pair HIIT workouts like these with ab work, like it’s laid out in The Get Fit Guide 2!
If you’re wanting to add some ab work afterwards I have quite a few options on my YouTube Channel! Or you can try 8 Min Flat Abs or 10 Min Toned Abs here! 🙂
Or download my FREE Six Min Six Pack E-Book in the side bar!
But first, this HIIT. Grab a chair, box or bench! If you’re using a chair make sure it’s sturdy! Don’t pick up some old, rickety chair! It just won’t end well! Sturdy chairs make for safe, fun and effective workouts!
45 seconds work : 15 seconds rest x3 rounds
High Taps – Standing in front of your chair, abs engaged, tall through your upper body, lean back slightly and run your feet above the seat of the chair. Keep these high and quick!
Plank Hop Ups – In a full plank with your hands on the floor and your feet on the chair, hop your feet to the floor and back up to the chair. Abs engaged to keep your core strong here!
Raised Burpees – Starting in a full plank position with hands on the chair, hop your feet in and hop into the air. Hop feet back to starting.
Step Up Hops – Staring with one foot on the chair and the other on the ground, press through your foot to hop up and switch foot positions.
Side to Side Tucks – Starting with your hands on the chair and legs off to one side of the chair, pull your knees into your body as you hop across to the other side of the chair.
