For me, workouts were never in the comfort of my home. I am a person who needs motivation and I needed to be pushed by my trainer. But now, I cannot afford to risk mine or my trainer’s life.
I start with a warm-up and basic mobilisation. My exercises include jump ropes (200X5 sets), squat jumps (40 seconds - 3 sets), lunges (40 seconds - 3 sets), pushups (8 to 20 - 3 sets), high kneels (40 seconds - 3 sets), leg raises, crunches, side heel touch, scissors (25 each - 5 sets).
I would not recommend plank to anyone because it involves a perfect posture for the desired result. You have to keep your abs tucked, gluteus tightened, and hold for 30 seconds. It could be a high plank or low plank but speak to your trainer about the posture and do 3 sets of 30 seconds each. After completing the exercises, I finish my workout routine with shavasana. You have to lie down on your back, relax your body and focus on breathing. If you are feeling any discomfort while doing the exercises, feel free to stop
