Here are some power-packed chair exercises for full body workouts that can help you control your weight without even going to gym:
1. Chair Crunches
Sit toward the edge of your chair. Your fingers should face the ground. Lean backward until you feel your core engaged (even if you don’t, just lean back a few inches). Extend both legs out slowly. Bend the knees, bringing them toward your chest. Repeat the movement for 15-20 reps.
2. Chair Squats
Stand in front of the chair as if you were going to sit down. Point your arms straight out in front of you, parallel to the ground, with your palms facing down. Slowly push your hips back, bend at the knee, and sit down. Before you get too comfortable, stand back up and return to the starting position. Do 2 sets of 15 reps.
3. Skater Switch
From the edge of your chair, bend right knee out to the side, extending left leg out straight to the side, toes pointed. Extend arms straight and lean forward slightly, reaching left arm to inside of right foot, raising right arm up behind body, twisting through the torso. Quickly switch sides. Repeat as quickly as you can for 30 alternating reps.
4. Plank Knee Cross
Start by placing both forearms on the seat of a chair and stepping back into a plank position. Now, raise your right knee up to the inside of your left arm, pause for a couple of moments and repeat on the opposite leg, this time touching your left knee to the inside of your right arm. This alternate movement makes 1 repetition. Do 15 to 20 repetitions without any gap. Keep your hips low and core engaged throughout the workout.
5. Seated Oblique Twist
Sitting in a chair, take your right elbow and twist your torso so that your elbow touches your left knee while bending forward so you feel your abdominal muscles contract. Return to an upright position and then repeat, taking the left elbow and bringing it down to the right knee. Do up to 3 sets of 10 reps.
