Top celebrity trainer Svava Sigbertsdottir continues with her simple DIY alternatives by including a chair this time.
For day 13, there will be some moves you haven’t touched on before, but don’t worry, Svava will ease you into them as always. She has full confidence in you- just take your time.
There will be lunges with a twist and you can turn your chair around if you have to make it easier but still get the full benefits of feeling that burn in your core and legs.
These lunges are great for flexibility especially in the hips. Your hip flexes can be tight at times due to prolonged sitting so this move is very good for your hips. You’ll be shaking it like Shakira soon.
One legged sit downs? Sounds easy but you’re using your momentum to slowly go up and down and feel the burn in your leg- again, take your time because moving too fast will lose muscle engagement.
Tricep dips- bum out, back close to chair now, toes up, and try go as far down as possible to get real toned up.
With a neutral spine (so not arching or curving under spine) your core is slightly engaged with the right posture, so you’ll find Move 5 is great for balance.
Side note: Even if you have missed some days or you know you’re going to miss a day, don’t stop says Svava. Come back the next time and carry on with the flow still.
