Seated Total Body Strength
This total body workout targets the upper and lower body with a variety of exercises that can be done while seated. For some lower body exercises, you can add ankle weights for more intensity. The upper body exercises use dumbbells and/or resistance bands for intensity. You can also make the workout harder by sitting on an unstable surface, such as an exercise ball.
