Brand new to working out, and don’t know where to start? No problem; Maggie Lane’s Daily Basics has you covered. This low-intensity workout will teach you how to warm up properly, then will move into a series of these total-body strengthening exercises.
Step 1: Carve out 25 minutes to dedicate to learning and performing some basic exercises.
Step 2: Grab a sturdy chair and an exercise mat or towel (optional, but you might want to use one of these if you’re going to work out on a hardwood or tile floor.
Step 3: Watch the video at least one time all the way through before you try to copy the moves so you can see how to do the moves with good form, and know what will be coming next.
Remember to work at your own pace, take breaks when you need them, and stop if you feel pain—sharp pangs or even dull sensations in your knees, for example, could be indications that you need to check your form and modify the moves per Maggie’s suggestions.
Make sure to check with your doctor before you begin a new exercise program.
