10 Moves to Make the Most of Your At-Home Workout

Chair squat

Squat to strengthen your legs and core, which will make everyday movements easier. Starting with a chair underneath you will help you master proper form.

Knee pushup

A beginner-style pushup, this move will help you build strength before attempting a standard pushup.

Stationary lunge

Split your stance with your right leg in front. Your right foot should be flat on the ground, and your left foot should be up on its toes.

Plank to Downward Dog

This move will test your upper body, especially your shoulders. Who says you need weights for a shoulder workout?

Straight-leg donkey kick

Get on all fours, with your hands aligned with your shoulders and your knees aligned with your hips.

Bird Dog

A full-body move that requires balance and stability, the Bird Dog pose is easily scalable to your ability level. Start with this version if you’re a beginner.

Bridge

Activate your core and posterior chain (a fancy term for the backside of your body) with a bridge. This is a great exercise to use as a warmup.

Forearm plank

Assume a plank position on your forearms. Your body should form a straight line from head to feet.

Side-lying hip abduction

You may not think about strengthening your hip muscles until they start to bother you, but please reconsider!
