The Core Muscles You Should Never Ignore

If you’ve ever acquired an injury, you’ll be familiar with the issue that exercising at full speed is an impossible feat.

To rectify such a hurtful issue, we’ve uncovered five ways to exercise from the comfort of your chair. Remember to check with your GP before embarking on any exercise program, especially if you’re recovering from an injury, but if you’re all good to go then get cracking on the below exercises!

Keeping your back straight, squeeze through your thigh muscle and raise one foot up off the ground until your leg is straight. Hold in that position for 1 second and lower back down.

Grab a ball or plump cushion, and squeeze tight and release – this will activate your inner and outer thigh muscles, as well as your glutes.

Start off using a ball for this and progress the exercise by using something heavier each time. Keep your hips facing forward, and you should feel the twist through your core.

Start off in the same position as the seated twist in the previous image. With your arms out in front, life the ball up above your head (rather than side to side), and lower back to the starting position. This will activate those biceps! Again, you can progress the weight once confident with the exercise.

Hold the ball in both hands with straight arms above your head. Bend at the elbows and lower the ball behind your head (while keeping your body tall and straight); squeeze through the back of your arms to bring the ball back to starting position. Feel those triceps burn!
