No gym? No problem!
Posted by Physician's Preference on 5/14/2012 to Health & Fitness

Just because you don't have a membership to the big, fancy gym down the street doesn't mean you can't get in a good workout.
 
So you do have a membership but just can't get there on some days?
 
Problem solved! We have 5 quick, simple exercises you can easily do from the comfort of your own home, or even in your backyard, that will still give you a good burn and get your blood flowing!
 
Tricep Dip: lower & raise yourself up 20 times. Try doing 3 sets of 20.
*For more difficulty, add a 10 pound weight to your lap and dip.
 
Side crunch: 2 sets of 20
 
Regular crunches: 50-100
*Remember to use your abdominals, not your arms, to get your neck & shoulders off the ground!
 
Squats: try doing 30 at a time
*For added difficulty, hold 8 pound weights in your hands and squat. 
 
Lunges: try doing 30 at a time
*For added difficulty, hold 8 pound weights in each of your hands and lunge

I thought when doing squats or lunges you knee was not to go past your ankle....? Is that true?

Sherri, Your knee is supposed to be square over your foot! You are right! But squats are different , your back must be straight at all times on all exercises!

Is it okay to do squat and lunges if you have arthritis in knee joints?

I have one herniated disc and three bulging disc. I was told to not do squats at all or lunges. What do you recommend? Haven't been to the gym in 16 months because of this.
