8 Challenging Chair Exercises
You should not have to join a fancy gym or spend loads of money on home fitness equipment in order to build lean body mass. Using simple at home objects such as canned food, a towel, even a chair can be just as effective as using a dumbbell or resistance band. Remember the body does not know the difference between lifting a one pound can of beans or a dumbbell. As long as you are overloading the muscles, even if that overload is from your own body weight, you will build muscle strength.
A few weeks ago I shared with you all a blog on how using as simple as a towel can help us with our resistance training workouts. Today's blog is how using a simple chair can help us tone our abs, biceps, triceps, hamstrings, glutes and quads. And one of the great things about these exercises is that you can do them anywhere you have access to a chair, whether at home, on the job or waiting for a flight at the airport. I hope you enjoy.
