Only 5 minutes of exercise

So, do you fancy trying one of Dr Chatterjee’s exercise sets?  

He recommends that we use these time intervals;

·         Beginner – 20 seconds on and 40 seconds off

·         Intermediate – 30 seconds on and 30 seconds off

·         Advanced – 40 seconds on and 20 seconds off

How about ‘Easy Kneesy’ ?

This is;

·         High knees with shoulder press

·         Squat with knee to hand

·         Straight punches

·         Sitting arm punch

·         Press up on knees

Don’t forget that this is only five minutes of exercise (we can talk about what he suggests in other five minutes in another blog)

High knees

March on the spot, brining your knees up as high as you can

Each time one of your knees comes up, push hands upwards towards the ceiling

As the knee returns to the ground, bring both arms down to your sides

Squat with knee to hand

Squat down as low as you can go with your arms out in front of you

Come back up to standing.  As you do so, lift your left knee up to touch your right hand

Do the same the other side

Straight Punches

Stand up straight with a very slight bend in your knees

Make a fist with both hands and bring up to your chest

Punch out each arm in front of you, alternating between left and right

Keep your arms level with your chest and look straight ahead

Sitting arm punch

Sit on the ground with your knees bent in front of you and your feet flat on the floor

Lean back a little until you feel your stomach muscles engage

Make sure you are feeling comfortable in this position

From this position, punch alternate arms into the air

Press- up on knees

Get down into a press up position but drop both knees to the floor.  Make sure your hands are under your shoulders

Keep your elbows tucked into your side as you lower yourself down towards the floor

Return to the starting position
