Cottage workouts- no equipment needed - Week 2 of 3



This is week 2 of the Vintage Fitness cottage workout blog series.  I filmed this one on a rainy day at a cottage in the screened in porch with just a Muskoka chair and a paddle.

Tips

  • To make this exercise easier start with your feet closer to the chair or slow down the movement
  • This is a great way to warm the body up
  • Keep the core braced to protect the lower back
  • Do 20 reps (10 on each leg)
