Week 2 – Just Hold It! (Isometric exercises)
In week 2 of our 2020 "Just Move" Challenge we are focusing on isometric exercises and in plain English that means exercises that don't require us to count repetitions. You hold a position for a certain amount of time. The longer the better! Below is a list of 10 exercises. At the very least pick 5 and hold them for 30 seconds (or longer if you can). You don't need ANY equipment to do them and you can do them ANYWHERE. 5 exercises x 30 sec each = 2.5 minutes. That's it!
Wall Sit Hold
Plank Hold (abs & shoulders) – low or high
Table Top Hold
Superman or Skydiver Hold
BONUS – swap any of the above with any of the below. Or make them all as your workout. If you just do 30 sec per exercise this will take you as little as 5 minutes.
Warrior 1, 2 or 3
Reverse Table Top Hold
Mid or Low Pushup Hold
Single Leg Hip Bridge
ADVANCED: Handstand! (not advised if you've never done it)
