The coronavirus outbreak has prevented many people from leaving their homes, whether it be for isolation reasons or being forced to now work from home. Yet, that doesn’t mean people can slack off from staying fit and healthy by exercising.
Famous Greek-Australian personal trainer and fitness expert Kayla Itsines is globally recognised for her Bikini Body Guide (BBG) program, “which is used to help women become stronger, fitter and more confident.”
Suitable for people of all fitness levels, Kayla has been sharing a variety of BBG home workout videos on her instagram for the past week.
In one video, Kayla shared an arms and abs workout that can be easily completed with a resistance band and other light home equipment.
“One of the great things about my BBG program is that it requires minimal equipment, which means you can do your workouts at home, outdoors or even while you’re travelling (or in the gym like me 💪😄),” Kayla says in an Instagram post.
“If you’re doing BBG at home, try using household items like milk cartons filled with sand or water to replace your dumbbells or an old towel instead of a yoga mat.”
Kayla also released a blog post on her website, showing her item recommendations for people to purchase to keep fit at home.
“When you’re just starting on your exercise journey, you might not want to buy everything at once. If I had to choose only two of these pieces of equipment, I would recommend getting an exercise mat and some dumbbells,” Kaylas blog says.
“Don’t worry if you don’t have a lot of space at home! Literally all you need is enough space to fit a mat to do a beginner workout.”
Kayla Itsines’ full program is available to download on her website, and was recently made available as an Apple TV app.
