2 Chair Exercises You Can Do Anywhere!

Workout At Home With Chair Exercises

While we’d all love to have the time for spin classes and yoga galore, real life has a way of getting in the way of our exercises goals.


Thankfully, there are on-line programs (like Lionsgate’s BeFit, which offers free workouts for exercise enthusiasts of all levels ranging from yoga to HIIT training to dance) and trainers (like Scott Herman), who are all about sharing quick and easy workouts you can do anytime, anywhere.

We asked Scott to share with us some workouts we could do at home (or, ya know, between calls in the office!) for those days when hitting the gym just isn’t going to happen. Here, he shares with us 2 chair exercises you can do anywhere!

Chair Exercises You Can Do Anywhere

Place a chair against a sturdy wall to hold it in place (hey, safety first Beauty Bean-ers!) then do each of these chair exercises for 10-12 reps each.

  1. Incline / Decline Push-Ups: Build upper body strength by placing your hands on the floor with your feet on the chair, or by placing your hands on the chair and keeping your feet on the floor (the former is more challenging, the later is easier). Having two options enables you to work toward a more intense workout, all in the comfort of your home.
  2. Step-Ups: Tone your glutes, quads, and hamstrings with this exercise. Stand in front of the chair and place your right foot on the seat. Push through the heel of your right foot and bring your left foot up to the seat of the chair as well. Now step down and repeat by alternating which leg you step up with each time. You can adjust the intensity by holding water bottles for weight or by finding a chair with a higher (or lower) seat.
