This one is so versatile and can be done from anywhere! Find something that weighs between 3-6kg (lighter or heavier, depending on your strength). When I was in Australia, I would hold onto my pug who weighs 10kg. He loved it!
You can also use a toddler, water bottle, weight, kettlebell or anything you can find around the house that’s heavy and easy to grip.

- Stand with your head facing forward and your chest held up and out.
- Place your feet shoulder-width apart or slightly wider. Hold your weight so it’s steady – do not arch your back, keep it tight.
- Sit back and down like you’re sitting into an imaginary chair. Keep your head facing forward as your upper body bends forward a bit. Rather than allowing your back to round, let your lower back arch slightly as you descend.
- Lower down so your thighs are as parallel to the floor as possible, with your knees over your ankles. Press your weight back into your heels.
- Keep your body tight, and push through your heels to bring yourself back to the starting position.
