Being stuck at home does not mean you still can't get in a good workout!
Celebrity trainer Jen Jacobs, the founder of the J Method, is helping our Fast Burn Challenge participants lose weight, and she shows us how to work out in the kitchen. Instead of only going to the kitchen when you feel a food craving, Jen suggests using the space for a quick workout.
"Rather than going into the kitchen for a snack, I want you to think about a different kind of snack -- and exercise snack!" she says, noting the kitchen can be the perfect place to strength train using the floor and hard countertop. Also, the kitchen has one of the best pieces of workout equipment around, according to the trainer -- a dish towel!
Jen's kitchen workout moves include:
Seated Side-Reach: This move works the inner thighs, glutes, and abs using a dish towel under the foot for resistance as you move your leg
High Plank Knee Tuck: Jens says this targets the abs, hips, and upper body and uses the towel under both feet with your hand planted on the floor during the plank
Reverse lunge: The move strengthens the legs, glutes, and also the ankle, knee, and hip using the towel under one foot as you perform the move
