For timing your Sets
Whatever you decide to do make sure you enjoy it. Change things up regularly to stop yourself getting bored. Listen to your body, warm up and cool down. I’ve listed a large number of exercises try picking a few to do. You could try doing each for 30 seconds, rest 10 and repeat 3 times or decide on a number of repetitions to do. If you are unsure of any of the exercises make sure you google them first as doing them incorrectly could cause injury. Most of these don’t require any equipment
Burpees (there are so many different variations of them ranging from easier to extremely hard, find one that works for you)
High knee running
Push ups – again lots of different variations
Toe tap crunches
Squats – again many variations
Single leg squats – there are lots of ways online that you can find to help build up to these
Straight leg deadlifts (despite the name make sure your knees are slightly bent and not locked)
Single leg deadlifts
Calf raises – do off a stair for a better workout
Knee drive lunges
My favourite youtube channels to exercise with. It works well to follow youtubers, because it makes you more motivated, however, it is important to remember that they exercise for a living and that you are not meant to be on their level, at least not to start off with. Do your best and as long as you keep going and are still able to have fun or at least enjoy it at least a little, then you’re going in the right direction.

Her Song Playlist is especially good
