Using household items as weights in your workout.

Dining chair squat: Your dining room chair is a great height for squats. Make sure you have space around you and position your feet slightly wider than your hips, toes turned out slightly. Use the table for balance if you need. For good from, slowly lower yourself to touch the chair, and then return to standing. Do these 10 times, rest, and then repeat for three more sets.

Washing detergent lunges: Grab two, two-litre bottles of household liquid like washing detergent and use your hallway to do weighted walking lunges with a bottle in each hand. Set yourself a goal e.g. two laps, and then add in 10 squats while still holding the bottles at each end of the hallway. Take a break, then repeat it another three times.

Got stairs? Grab a broom to help you balance and stand at the bottom of the stairs facing sideways. Have one foot on the bottom stair and the other on the floor. Use the broom (brush sitting on the floor) for balance (without putting your weight on it). Start using one leg to do 10 single leg squats, then switch the direction you are facing and repeat on the other leg. Repeat this three times.

Bath towel rows: Grab a large bath towel and loop it around a secure pole (this could be a staircase banister or brick pillar). Make sure it is secure, and can fully support your weight. Stand facing the pole and hold the ends of the towel in each hand. Lean slightly back and then use the towel to pull yourself towards the pole, and then return to your starting position. Repeat 10 times and do three sets.

Green bag single arm row: Fill a green reusable shopping bag with some books, making it as heavy or as light as you are comfortable with. Hold the bag in one hand, and tip from the hip so you are slightly bent over. Place your free hand on your kitchen table or bench for balance. Keeping your hips square, feet hip width apart and shoulders square, let the weighted bag hang at arm’s length to start the row. Lead with the elbow to row the weighted bag so your elbow passes your rib cage, then return to the start. Repeat this 10 times, then switch to the other side. Repeat three times.
