The Just Get Started series is perfect for Total Beginners. Rob Sulaver will lead you in this basic workout – no equipment or gym membership required! Rob focuses on proper form and alignment, so you can begin your workouts being safe while you sweat. Let’s get started!
In this Total Beginner Workout, Rob will take you through a routine that you can do while watching TV, so you can get fit while catching up on your favorite shows! The workout will feature five different exercises
Exercise one is a V-up, which focuses on the core. Sit on the couch and grab the edge of the couch with both hands and recline back. Lift your feet off the ground and straighten your legs until your body is in a V shape. This is your starting position. Then, squeeze your knees into your chest, almost like a tucked position, and then shoot your legs back out to that starting V position. Repeat this movement at a moderate pace for 30 seconds.
Exercise two is a lateral push-up shuffle. These are killer because they work both your upper body, and your core. Stand behind the couch and place your hands on the back of the couch. Lean your body forward so you are in a push up position. Make sure your shoulders are over your hands, and your back is nice and long. Then shuffle your arms sideways towards the other end of the couch. Keeping your core tight, reverse the movement. Go back and forth for 30 seconds.
Couch burpees are the third exercise. These will get your lower body pumping and work on your upper body stability. Stand on one side of the couch and hold onto the armrest in a push up position. Jump your feet away from the couch, towards the couch, and then straight up. Repeat for 30 seconds.
Exercise four is a lateral hop. Same as the previous exercise, brace yourself with both hands on the arm of the couch. Then hop your feet up and over side-to-side. Imagine there is a small hurdle that you are jumping over. Repeat for 30 seconds. These last two exercises will get your heart rate up to round out this full-body workout!
You’re going to finish strong with exercise five, sprints. Run in place with high knees for 30 seconds.
Repeat these five exercises every time there is a commercial break! By the time the show is over, you should feel your heart pumping, brow sweating, and you will have earned that couch time!
