  • If you can perform 3 rounds of 10 reps at one variation, we need to move onto the next level.

  • If you have no Dip bars, see if you can use the chairs, you may need 2 people to sit on the chairs so they don't fall over!

  • If these dips are too difficult, perform the single chair dips.

  • The straight leg version is more difficult.

  • If you bend your knees to 90° this makes it easier.

  • Start with arms fully extended, lower until your shoulders come below your elbows, then return to the start position.

  • Your shoulders should come forward and your elbows back like in the demonstrations.

  • Avoid flaring the elbows out to the sides and dropping the shoulders straight down!

chinups 8-10 reps

  • Perform 8-10 reps of the chin ups before moving onto the next exercise.

  • Use assistance bands if needed, once you can do 3 sets of 10, move to lighter band.

  • If you have no pull up bar and bands, try the door pull ups.

  • Make sure to secure the door with cardboard underneath and hang a towel over the top.

  • If you cannot perform the full pull up on the door, try the negative variation.

  • Perform 3 sets of (3 x 5-10) seconds negatives.

  • If the door negatives are too difficult try the floor slide pull up variation.

  • When you can perform 10 good controlled reps, move on to the next progression.

  • If you can't keep your legs straight that's fine, you just have tight hamstrings, spend extra time stretching these at the end of the workout.

  • Do not let your elbows flare out to the side.

  • For the floor and elevated Pikes, bring head forward and elbows back making a big triangle with head and hands at the bottom of the rep.

side lunges 8 reps each leg

  • Assisted Side Lunges:

  • Hold onto a door handle or something similar to assist you as you gain the strength and Mobility for unassisted lunges.

  • When you can perform 10 reps on each leg assisted without using the arms to pull you up move onto the unassisted version.

  • Side Lunges:

  • Now try these side lunges, work on getting as low as possible, this will depend on your ankle mobility, if this is an issue spend extra time in on stretching ankles and in the deep squat position.

  • Advanced Side Lunges:

  • When the normal lunges become easy, try elevating one leg on a small box at first, perform 8-20 reps each leg, then progress to a higher box or chair.
