Chair exercises


No need to spend tons of money on fancy gym memberships or fitness equipment only to realize you don’t have enough space at home. Use simple, at-home equipment such as the humble chair in order to intensify your workout. Here are 5 simple at-home intense chair exercises to add variety to your home workouts.

Seated Dumbbell Curls
• Sit on a bench with the torso upright, knees bent and feet flat on the floor. • Hold a dumbbell in each hand with the arms hanging down by the sides and the palms facing inside. • Curl one arm, bending at the elbow and rotate the palm while curling upwards so that it faces the shoulder. • Contract the biceps fully and then uncurl and extend the arm back to the starting position. • Repeat on the other arm. Variation: This exercise can also be done in a standing position, single arm at a time or both arms together.

Hammer Curl.
This exercise works the forearms also along with the biceps. • Stand or sit holding a dumbbell in each hand with the palms facing inside. • Curl the dumbbells up until the thumbs are close to the shoulders on both sides. • Pause for a second and slowly return to the starting position.
