Bench workout!

Hi guys,

Here are some exercises you can do at home or the office on a bench or sturdy chair!

Do as many reps as you can and when you think you can’t do anymore, keep going!

Have fun!

Start with a 3 to 5 minimum warm up including running in place, jumping jacks, squats…

1/ Up and down, switch lead leg after 10 reps

2/ Up and down drive the knee up while pressing both arms up (use dumbbells if you want more), change lead leg after 10 reps

3/ Up and down as fast as you can, be careful on that one…again as many and as fast as possible!
