PUSH-UPS: Start in the push–up position, hands shoulder-distance apart, fingers spread slightly and pointing straight ahead. Focus eyes on the floor. Inhale as you lower; exhale as you push up until your elbows are slightly bent. Work up to completing 3 sets of 10-15 reps.

LUNGES: With your back straight, step forward with your right foot about one metre, bending your knee until your thigh is virtually parallel to the floor. Don’t lean forward, and keep your knee directly in line with your foot. Push off with your right leg and return to starting point. Repeat 10-15 times, alternating legs, two to three sets of 10-15 each side.

SQUATS: Stand with feet shoulder-width apart. With stomach muscles tucked in and buttocks contracted, slowly bend knees, lowering buttocks no further than knee height. Keep knees over toes and heels on floor. Work up to completing 3 sets of 10-15 reps.

TRICEP DIPS: Find a window ledge and rest your butt and hands against it. Straighten your legs in front of you, with your weight on your hands. Dip slowly, lowering your butt and bending your elbows until you feel it in your upper arms, then push up to near straightness. Work up to completing 3 sets of 10-15 reps.
