How to Get Started
Equipment: A mat or towel, a sturdy chair and a couple of two-pound hand weights.
1. March in place for three minutes.
2. Stand straight with feet hip-width apart and hands on thighs; circle knees five times clockwise, then reverse.
3. Hinge forward from hips, with back straight, abs tight and knees bent. Dangle arms toward the floor; roll shoulders five times clockwise, then reverse.
4. Lie face up, knees to chest, hands on shins; rotate hips five times clockwise, then reverse.
How often: Complete two sets of the following six exercises, working up to three sets as you get stronger. Do this routine three times a week on non-consecutive days, stretching targeted muscles afterwards.
