Looking to get in a workout but don’t have a gym close by? Maybe you’re staying at a hotel with no workout facilities? Either way, the team at Muscle Club have you covered with our comprehensive guide on 5 Bodyweight Exercises You Can Do With Just A Chair! No machinery, bands, or cardio equipment needed!
This workout is guaranteed to take less than 30 minutes, making it not only convenient for location but very time-convenient, too.
Ideally, this workout works best with an armchair – one that is stable so it won’t collapse, and preferably one that doesn’t have wheels.
We are going to complete this bodyweight workout in a circuit style, meaning that we’ll complete each exercise one after another, followed by a 1-minute rest.
The chair workout is as follows:
We guarantee that once you’ve finished all 5 sets of this chair-only workout you’ll be feeling the burn! We’ve designed this workout to target the entire upper body – so, chest, triceps, and biceps. You’ll also get some great abdominal and lower body muscle recruitment with the sit to stand squats and the side crunches.
Considering this workout is bodyweight only, you are encouraged to increase the repetitions if you don’t feel the set rep scheme is challenging enough. However, as you progress through the sets the reps do increase, and the fatigue will certainly kick in, so don’t say we didn’t warn you!
So if you’re stuck for workout equipment, make sure you try out our 5 Bodyweight Exercises You Can Do With Just A Chair workout and give us you feedback on how challenging you found it! What additions would you make to the program to make it more of a challenge? We’re always interested in your comments!
