Home Gym Week 1: Military Squats

Not all students have a membership at the Health Suite, but this doesn’t mean there aren’t exercises we can’t do at home! With the help of a few Rhodes University gym instructors, we have sought out some exercise ideas to keep you in shape without having to leave your room.

Each week we’ll upload a new exercise which targets various body parts in order to keep things fresh and exciting!

Week 1: Military Squats:

Instructors: Belinda Campbell and Matthew Hanley

What it targets: Quadriceps of the legs and oblique abdominals of the core.

Suggested sets: three sets with 20 reps each (3 x 20)

Warning:  In order to get a proper workout, the exercises we suggest need to be combined with other exercises. Never push yourself beyond your limits to avoid injury.
